DUDLEY Town trimmed the gap between themselves and second placed Bewdley Town to just two points after pulling off a 2-0 triumph over Wolves Sporting Community.

First half goals from Mitch Lawley and Justin Nisbett made certain the Robins reeled off another three points and cement third place in the process.

Frustrated Bewdley were left on the sidelines after their proposed game against Black Country Rangers was called off.

But at least Bewdley didn't lose any ground on league leaders Shifnal Town who suffered a similar fate when their scheduled trip to Littleton also fell victim to the weather.

Bewdley will hope to be back in action this Saturday when they host Darlaston Town at Ribbesford Meadow, the visitors having lost five of their last six games

Cradley Town continue to struggle at the bottom of the table after they were blitzed 6-1 by Bilston Town.

Adam Garmson grabbed a hat-trick for the Steelmen taking his league tally of goals to 21 for the season so far.

Kevin Nickle also converted a couple of goals, one of which arrived from the penalty spot while Alex Cameron made it six of the best.

Tyreece Ruddock pulled a goal back for Cradley, but that was of little consolation.

Cradley can still climb off the bottom on Tuesday night when they play hosts to Shawbury United at Beeches View Avenue.

They will be attempting to leapfrog ahead of next to bottom side Dudley Sports who have a considerably tougher task on their hands when they visit fourth placed Wolves Casuals, who have games in hand over all their rivals.

Casuals underlined their current form with a 6-0 walloping of Wem Town where both Kyle Brady and Jake Webb bagged a brace of goals

Sports also have a date with their tenants Black Country Rangers on Saturday when the sides clash at Hillcrest Avenue, with Black Country occupying the home dressing room.

Prior to that, Black Country take on Atherstone Town this Tuesday night when both sides will be bidding to progress in the Birmingham Midweek Floodlit Cup.

Cradley also have a tricky trip ahead of them on Saturday when they must visit Worcester Raiders, who shared a 2-2 draw at Pershore Town at the weekend.

Former Stourbridge and Kidderminster Harriers frontman Ryan Rowe was on the mark again for Raiders together with Zac Hussain.

But their goals were cancelled out by Dan Noake and a 90th minute rocket from James Unwin.
