TOP of the table Tividale returned to winning ways with a convincing 5-1 success at local rivals Dudley Sports following the previous week's surprise defeat to Bilston.

Tivvy took a slender 1-0 first half lead when Dan Bryson converted from a Darragh Bustin corner.

Rion Francis-Mills rifled home a second goal by following up to net after a Demetri Brown shot had been blocked out.

Brown then bagged a third goal after being set up by Liam Wilkinson.

Emile Beckford pulled a goal back for Sports but any prospects of a recovery completely disappeared when Tivvy dead ball specialist Bustin blasted home direct from a free kick while the hosts had Tony Beyei sent off for dissent.

Former Stourbridge youth hot property Alex Cameron came off the bench to secure a fifth goal on his Tivvy debut after Harvey Walker supplied the opening.

The result leaves Tivvy a commanding 13 points clear of closest rivals Black Country Rangers, who left it late before beating Bewdley Town 3-2 at Gornal Athletic's Garden Walk ground.

Under the new leadership of Pete Whitehead and Matthew Martin, Rangers bossed the first half and went 2-0 up thanks to goals from Kevin Nickle and Shaun Smith.

The second half was a different story as Bewdley battled back to level through Sam Lester and Morgan Carpenter.

The outcome was decided on a hotly disputed last gasp penalty converted by Kieran Clarke.

Cradley Town were involved in a cracking 1-1 draw at fifth placed Wednesfield.

Kyle Montague fired Wednesfield into a 41st minute lead when he netted beyond the reach of Cradley 'keeper Ben Manley.

But Cradley came back to level in the second half courtesy of a Nigel Penney penalty after Wednesfield goalkeeper Kalem Betts had brought down Dan Danks.

Dudley Town were forced to rescheduled their proposed game against Smethwick Rangers following their change of grounds.

The Robins have switched to groundshare with Wolverhampton-based Sporting Khalsa having initially started the season at the former Oldbury United venue in York Road.

But they were forced to cancel their Smethwick contest as Sporting Khalsa already had a home fixture arranged with Worcester City.

Instead the Robins are set for a return to action this Saturday when they entertain a Pershore Town side who have just climbed off bottom spot.

Table toppers Tividale travel to Bewdley Town while Dudley Sports make the short trip to improving Bilston Town Community.

Cradley Town entertain previous tenants Black Country Rangers at Beeches View Avenue.
