Corby Town boosted their survival hopes and moved out of the relegation places on goal difference after defeating Stafford Rangers 1-0 in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier writes Tom Feaheny.

A late Phillip Trainer goal proved to be the difference as caretaker-manager Steve Kinniburgh got his first victory in charge.

Sutton Coldfield Town are now fourth bottom after they lost 3-2 to Matlock Town.

In the battle for promotion, second place Spennymoor Town need one more win to ensure a play-off place after they could only draw 1-1 with Rushall Olympic.

Nantwich are in third after beating already relegated Ilkeston 3-0, Stephen Jones, Ryan Brookes and Osebi Abadaki got the goals.

Stourbridge are fourth after they came from behind to strengthen their claim for one of the play-off places after beating Frickley Athletic 4-1. Goals from Luke Benbow, Kayelden Brown, Thomas Tonks and a nice strike by Ethan Jones cancelled out an early Tyler Williams effort.

Victory for Grantham Town saw them overtake their opponents Buxton and move to fifth. They gained maximum points thanks to Lee Shaw’s goal with a quarter of an hour to go.
