The city team played poorly and was damaged by a red card for star striker Dion Sembie-Ferris, who received a second warning in the first minute of the second half.

Neither team seemed to score until Redditch striker Romario Martin nicely invited home eight minutes from time.

It wasn’t all bad news for runner-up Sports as third-placed Banbury suffered a shocking first loss of the season, 2-1 at St. Ives. Coalville, 4-1 home winners over Nuneaton, are now four points ahead of the top.
