Stamford made it eight games unbeaten as beat Loughborough Dynamo 2-0 at the Zeeco stadium.

Manager Graham Drury made one change to the starting eleven with Ollie Brown-Hill replacing Jake Duffy. Sean Wright was on the bench after missing out last week at Boldmere St Michael.

The Daniels started on the front foot when a long throw from Connor Bartle was met by Jonathon Margetts whose shot was blocked by the visiting keeper Lewis King.

After twenty minutes Cameron Johnson broke down the left and he crossed which was met by Joe Burgess, but his header was wide of the goal.

The opening goal of the game came on the half hour mark when good interplay saw Harry Vince receive the ball and he found Margetts who swept the ball past King in the Loughborough goal.

Stamford nearly doubled their lead when a cross from Jack Duffy found Margetts but the Daniels forward had his shot blocked by Luke McGinnell.

Into the second half and Stamford started quickly and a quick break from Johnson down the left saw him fire a shot goalwards which beat King in the Dynamo goal but former Daniels defender Ed Cook got back to clear the ball off the line at the expense of a corner.

From the resultant set piece the ball was swung in from Bartle and his ball found Margetts at the back post who headed home.

Stamford continued to press and a Harry Vince corner was placed right under the crossbar. Lewis King did well to punch the ball away from danger.

Loughborough had a chance to grab a goal back with ten minutes remaining when substitute Aaron Cole fired a shot from a tight angle but Dan Wallis was able to block the shot.

Then a cross from Ollie Brown-Hill was met by Margetts but the Daniels top-scorer was not able to find the target and complete his hat-trick.

Then Jack Duffy fired a shot wide after good build.

With time running out a corner was swung in and Marshall Willock met the cross and his header cannoned off the crossbar and away from danger.

The win allowed the Daniels to keep pace with leaders Halesowen as the season enters the final two months of the season.
