Bromsgrove Sporting 0 (Rowe - missed penalty 71')
AFC Sudbury 2 (Jackson 63', Allen 85')

Sudbury's potential great escape continued on Saturday afternoon, as they beat Bromsgrove Sporting at the Victoria Ground.

Goals from Simeon Jackson and Joshua Allen were enough to ensure the three points headed back to Suffolk.

Sporting's Billy Shaw had a shot from range easily saved by James Bradbrook in the 23rd minute and, three minutes later, they had a golden opportunity to take the lead, but Ben Richards-Everton's header from Stanley Anaebonam's cross was cleared off the line.

Soon after, Joe Neal had a shot blocked and Jackson hit the side netting for the visitors.

Bromsgrove's Billy Shaw and Miro Pais had chances late in the half to break the deadlock, but neither could find the target with their attempts.

In the 62nd minute, Shaw hit the crossbar with a strike from inside the area and just a minute later, Jackson poked a ball into the area past Sporting stopper Ollie Taylor and into the net.

With 20 minutes remaining, Sporting were awarded a penalty for a handball offence. Captain Luke Rowe stepped up to take it, but saw his well struck effort saved in fine style by Bradbrook.

Neal had a header saved in the 76th minute but the lead would eventually be doubled and the win sealed nine minutes later, courtesy of a shot from Allen that Taylor made contact with before going in.
