BOTTOM side Redditch United celebrated their first BetVictor Southern League win since August Bank Holiday Monday.

On a wet and windy afternoon they achieved just their third victory of the Premier Division Central season by beating Nuneaton Borough 3-2 at the Trico Stadium.

And they had to come back from being 1-0 down in the 23rd minute to an Isaiah Osbourne goal.

The Reds hit their hosts with two goals in two minutes shortly after the break from former Borough players Romario Martin and Boubakar Traore.

Nuneaton had a great chance to equalise just past the hour mark when substitute Callum Powell was hauled down by Traore but his penalty was parried away by keeper Kieran Boucher.

Boosted by that, Martin went on to notch his second in the 81st minute but the hosts still had to survive a nervy finale after Miles Addison pulled a goal back in the last minute of normal time.

The win lifts Duane Darby’s side to within five points of second-from-bottom Alvechurch who lost 2-1 at Lye Meadow to Needham Market.

However, Church will feel a little hard done by as they came back from a 41st-minute Callum Page goal to level three minutes from time through Connor Deards and also hit the bar.

Then a deflected shot over the keeper in the third minute of stoppage time won it for the Marketmen who are 11th.

Church pursue precious points at home to Coalville Town on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

A 2-1 home defeat for Bromsgrove Sporting against 17th-placed Hitchin Town dropped Bren Kelly’s side to third in the table.

After a poor first half the Canaries broke the deadlock five minutes after the restart.

Daniel Webb was adjudged to have been brought down in the box and Layne Eadie converted the resulting penalty.

Then on the hour mark Alex Marsh deservedly put Hitchin 2-0 up.

Will Shorrock reduced the deficit in the 74th minute but not even the introduction of star new signing Reece Styche, recruited after he left Hereford FC last week, could help Sporting get anything from the game.

Evesham United’s play-off bid suffered a blow when Bideford hit back to draw 2-2 at the Jubilee Stadium.

The Robins are ninth in Southern League Division One South and level on points with Cinderford Town having played two more games.

The hosts will be kicking themselves for throwing away a 2-0 lead given to them by Lee Chilton after 52 minutes and Jamie Lucas on 65.

Archie Reay pulled one back in the 81st minute and then Toby Down grabbed the Devonians a point four minutes into stoppage time.

Worcester City’s Midland League Premier Division trip to Shrewsbury side Haughmond was called off on the morning of the match due to a waterlogged pitch.

Stourport Swifts went behind at second-from-bottom Lye Town to Geoff Hill’s goal on seven minutes.

But Quentin Townsend’s sixth-placed side quickly hit back four minutes later through Nick MacPherson to eventually draw 1-1.

Jake Wickett scored as Fairfield Villa crashed 5-1 at leaders Solihull United in Division Two while Redditch Borough’s game with Eastwood Town was postponed.

The Division Three games for Upton Town and Welland against Coventrians and AFC Solihull respectively were both called off.

Inkberrow saw off Coventry Plumbing 2-1 in the Les James Challenge Cup quarter-finals through Chris Dyson and George Thomas.

The last-eight derby between Barnt Green Spartak and Feckenham was postponed.

Bewdley Town’s West Midlands League Premier Division title bid was hit by a 4-0 loss at leaders Shifnal Town.

Pershore Town were held 2-2 at home by struggling Cradley Town while Littleton’s home game with Darlaston Town was called off.

Droitwich Spa’s Division One clash with Team Dudley also got postponed with no alternative venue to the flooded Walshes Meadow.

A thriller saw Bromyard Town draw 3-3 with Wyrley at Delahay Meadow.

Worcester Raiders Reserves’ Division Two visit to Warstones Wanderers was postponed.

Raiders’ first team are due to return to action at home to Shawbury United on Wednesday night (7.45pm).
