Billingham snatches winner
Tividale 1 Stourport Swifts 2 MPL Sat 11th Jan Att: 88
Joe Billingham gave Stourport Swifts all three points with the winner to move them up to 4th and within a point of top spot.
Swifts dominated play throughout this match, but struggled to find the finishing touch in a goalless first half. Jack Downing was a constant threat on the right, and tested Tividale keeper Louis Connor twice early on, and Drew Canavan saw his shot blocked after some good work from Downing. Martin Slevin also forced Connor to save well with a long range free kick, and Nick MacPherson shot wide after being played in by Downing.
Tividale offered little as an attacking threat, with Matt Fulloway and James Timmins looking strong at the back for Swifts in difficult conditions, and Swifts finally took the lead with 20 minutes to go when Downing drove in a low cross to the near post and MacPherson reacted smartly to drive in from close range. Swifts got a wake up call just three minutes later when Tividale substitute Joe Burroughs put his side level after they twice failed to clear in a rare bout of home pressure.
With ten minutes left, Downing again provided the defining cross and Billingham was on hand to force home the winner from five yards out.
