RELEGATED Hucknall Town visit Damson Park tomorrow for Moors last home game of the season.

Bob Faulkner’s men can no longer be relegated after picking up a vital 2-0 win over Stafford Rangers on Monday and watching other results go their way over the Easter period

A shocking defensive performance on Saturday saw Moors humbled 3-1 by Hinckley at Damson Park but goals from Lee Downes and James McPike made amends when they beat Stafford two days later.

On-loan Birmingham City striker gave Moors an early lead on Saturday.

The 20-year-old shrugged off the challenge from centre back Craig Mcilwain and coolly slotting past Craig Mackenzie.

Jake Edwards had the perfect opportunity to double their lead but he sliced his one-on-one effort high and wide.

After the break Hinckley were clearly fired up from a Dean Thomas’ half-time team-talk.

Richard Lavery scored a second half brace in between a well-taken goal from Adam Webster.

Webster was brilliantly denied by Moors keeper Danny Crane but Lavery punished some sloppy defending from the following corner to level the scores.

On 58 minutes man-of-the-match Neil Cartwright turned former Hinckley defender Tom Bonner inside out and crossed for Webster who acrobatically put the visitors ahead.

Lavery and Roma both missed free headers as crosses continued to fly into the box but the midfielder made up for his previous sitter with another header from a corner to effectively wrap up the game.

Lee Collins had a late effort saved by Mackenzie and Crane saved a Webster penalty after Cartwright was brought down by Theo Streete.
