Nantwich Town, beaten at home by Coalville Town in the Evo-Stik League Premier last weekend, recovered to beat out-of-form Stourbridge 2-0 at the Weaver Stadium on Tuesday night.

Nantwich thought they had taken the lead in the 12th minute as Harry Clayton’s shot hit the underside of the bar and bounced down but no goal was given.

The home side did go ahead 8 minutes later though, as Clayton was played through on goal through the left channel area and he slotted well past Matt Gould.

Matt Bell went close with an effort for Nantwich early in the second period, but the Dabbers did double their lead in the 67th minute.

Recent signing Jordan Cole, just off the bench, received the ball on the edge of the area and curled his shot past Gould.

The win lifted the Dabbers up to eighteenth, but dropped the Glassboys to eleventh and now seven points behind the play-off places.

There was one game in the Evo-Stik North on Tuesday and it saw Droylsden move up to seventh in the table, just a point off the top six, after a 1-0 Butcher`s Arms victory over mid-table Ramsbottom United.

However, the Bloods left it very late as Luke Daley headed the only goal of the game in the first minute of stoppage time at the end of the game.
