BEWDLEY Town bagged a splendid 2-0 win at fellow title challengers Wolves Casuals to stay second in the West Midlands League Premier Division.

Two late goals from Dylan Hart, which took his league tally to 23 this season, was enough to make certain of the points.

But Bewdley still remain six points adrift of leaders Shifnal Town, who show no signs of slipping after they secured at stunning 6-0 success at Tividale based Smethwick Rangers.

Tom Hill was on target again for the leaders to register his 37th league goal of the term while further efforts flowed in from Kyle Montague, Jordan Uppal and Harry Cunningham plus two more from substitute Jay Holdcroft.

That was after Smethwick had restricted Shifnal to a slender 1-0 lead at half time.

Bewdley will bid to try and close the gap on Shifnal this Saturday when they face Pershore Town.

Although flood water is fast receding on Bewdley's Ribbesford Meadow ground, there still remains considerable debris on the pitch.

As a result, Bewdley have agreed to switch the fixture and play Saturday's game at Pershore.

Dudley Town have opened up a six point advantage on Casuals as they continue to cement third place.

Following their midweek triumph over local rivals Dudley Sports, the Robins followed up by clinching a 2-1 victory at next to bottom Cradley Town.

Alex Perry put the Robins in front when he headed home Jay Hewitt's free kick at the far post.

Credit to Cradley who came back into the game after half time and levelled when a Dan Danks header went in off the post after Darren Whitley had flicked on a John Phillips free kick.

Lewis Taylor-Boyce then blotted his copybook when he had a penalty saved by Cradley goalkeeper Liam O'Dowd.

But Taylor-Boyce made amends by smashing home the winning goal when he converted a clever back-heel from Hewitt.

The Robins return to action on Saturday when they host AFC Bridgnorth on Sporting Khalsa's artificial pitch.

Dudley Sports' decline continued when they were dispatched 4-0 by Darlaston Town.

It was Sports 18th defeat in 23 starts and leaves them two points adrift of Cradley at the bottom.

Their prospects of survival suffered further when third from bottom Wem Town pulled off a 3-1 win over Worcester Raiders to open up a nine point gap on Cradley.

Sports were due to face Worcester Raiders on Tuesday at Hillcrest Avenue in Brierley Hill before entertaining Wolves Casuals on Saturday.

Black Country Rangers have slipped out of the top six after being held to a 1-1 draw at Shawbury United.

Former Halesowen Town player Lee Chilton registered Rangers' only goal in what proved an uninspiring affair.

Black Country were hoping to complete their much delayed Birmingham Midweek Cup clash with Atherstone Town this week.
