Lowly Grantham Town were always going to be up against it facing second-placed Hednesford.

The Gingerbreads conceded a Ben Bailey goal after only four minutes, but kept the home side at bay for the remainder of the first half.

Aaron Rey doubled Hednesford’s advantage two minutes after the break. A 54th minute Neil Harvey strike sealed Grantham’s fate.

With league leaders North Ferriby United only managing to draw with Stafford Rangers, Hednesford are looking good with two good games in hand.

Grantham Town: Turner, Asher, Meikle, Hannigan, Hawes, Lewis, Watson, Nwadike, MacVicar, Nightingale, Smith. Subs: McGhee, Troke, Maddox, Demidh, Elliot.
