Bromsgrove Sporting assured themselves league safety with a commanding 2-1 victory over Stratford Town.

Billy Shaw gave Sporting the lead midway through the first half before Nathan Blissett doubled the lead eight minutes into the second.

Lewis Ison pulled one back for the home side in the 90th minute but it would only prove to be a consolation, as the Rouslers withstood the late pressure to secure a richly deserved three points.

Shaw had an opportunity to open the scoring 12 minutes in, but his side-footed effort was easily held by keeper Callum Smith.

The deadlock was broken in the 23rd minute; this came via an Aaron Roberts pinpoint long pass to Shaw, who made space for himself inside the area before curling home a left footed strike into the bottom corner.

Ison almost levelled proceedings nine minutes later, but his shot from a decent position was saved smartly by the feet of Sporting stopper Ollie Taylor.

Sporting's second involved Roberts and Shaw again; the former's ball out from the back was headed on by the latter - this put it into the path of Blissett, who ran through on goal and fired home with an accurate drive.

The Bards enjoyed some chances as the second half progressed, with Ison putting a header over the bar and Andre Landell shooting straight at Taylor. The 69th minute saw Bromsgrove's keeper produce an outstanding save from a Stratford strike.

Tyrell Hamilton tried to catch Taylor off his line with a distant free kick in the 80th minute, but his audacious effort was comfortably saved. Up the other end, substitute Miro Pais had a deflected attempt easily held by Smith.

Just as additional time commenced, Skeen-Hamilton poked home after Taylor had clawed out an initial effort from Hamilton.

Right at the death, Jack Storer had a golden chance to bag the equaliser, but he guided his header from an unmarked position straight into the path of Taylor.
