Struggling to escape NPL Division One South relegation danger, this was Rugby’s first win since Bedworth on Boxing Day, having only added one point against Chasetown since then.

It lifts Valley above Loughborough Dynamo on goal difference, both have 19 points from 29 games, with Northwich Victoria bottom on 14 points from 27 after their ten-point deducton.
