Grantham Town 2

Sutton Coldfield Town 1

A third win in four games saw the Gingerbreads go four matches unbeaten and move up to 16th in the league on Tuesday night.

Grantham dominated the first half at a chilly Meres but had nothing to show for their efforts at half time.

Generally against the run of play, Sutton Coldfield then went in front through Luke Rodgers on 69 minutes after the Gingerbreads were caught out by a quick break.

Despite the visitors now having their tails up, Grantham kept chasing and got their reward with a Lee Shaw equaliser in the 80th minute.

With 10 minutes to go and all to play for, chances came and went at either end but it was Grantham who struck again in the 84th minute when substitute Grant Ryan fired in Shaw’s squared ball to give the home side a deserved victory.

Grantham Town: Turner, Meadows, Storey, Hollingsworth (Burns, 71), Galinski, Carr, Browne (McGhee, 63), Lewis (c), Shaw, Saunders, Harris (Ryan, 75). Subs not used: Emmott. Att: 142.
