TIVIDALE were handed a huge boost to their title prospects when rivals Haughmond were held to a 1-1 draw at much improved Pershore Town.

It could have been even worse for Haughmond who salvaged a point with a 93rd minute Reece Taylor goal after Matt Pinder had put Pershore ahead from the penalty spot.

The result leaves Tivi just one point in front of Haughmond with three games to play and they can ill afford any more slip-ups when they entertain strugglers Wem Town at Packwood Road this Saturday.

Third placed Wolves Casuals could have closed to within striking distance of the leaders but were soundly beaten 3-1 by Dudley Town.

Emils Fedotvos fired the Robins into a seventh minute lead with a spectacular 18 yard shot as Casuals struggled to cope with Dudley's early intensity.

Further chances went begging with Sammy Prince going close for the Robins on a number of occasions.

Two superbly taken second half goals from Jordan Davies sealed a storming success for the Robins.

Cradley Town cling to 10th place after pulling off a 3-1 win at Shifnal Town.

All the goals arrived in the second half, Nigel Penney opening Cradley's account on 47 minutes.

Five minutes later Dan Bell increased the lead when firing in from 30 yards after Shifnal could only half clear from a corner.

Shifnal pulled a goal back when Tom Hill headed home from a corner but Cradley wouldn't be denied, sub Josh Smith setting up fellow sub Sam Woodhouse to fire in a third before Shifnal were reduced to 10 men when Sam Wilde was sent off.

Pegasus Juniors are consigned to bottom spot despite holding Shawbury United to a goalless draw.

But a cluster of clubs remain locked together just above the drop zone, including Dudley Sports who suffered a 4-2 beating at Bridgnorth Town.

Cradley travel to Hereford side Wellington this Saturday while Sports entertain Wednesfield.

Bewdley Town suffered a setback in their bid for a top- six finish when beaten 2-1 at Wem Town.

Matt Kerby fired Bewdley into a first half lead but Wem hit back after the break through Chris Peel and substitute Matt Cohen.
