Tamworth edged closer to preserving their Nationwide Conference future with a crucial goalless draw at fellow strugglers Scarborough last night.

The Lambs, extending their unbeaten run to five matches, have now opened a four-point gap on the drop zone, though they have played one game more.

It might have been even better for Mark Cooper's men. Tommy Johnson planted his header straight into the arms of Ian Dunbavin early on and the goalkeeper denied John-son's long-range effort after the break.

Lambs custodian Sean Bowles was also in action when he saved David McNiven's shot and tipped wide a Tony Hackworth shot.

Leamington booked a second trip to a League ground this season after earning a place in the Polymac Services League Cup final. Despite losing 1-0 to Chasetown at the New Windmill Ground, the Brakes progressed 3-2 on aggregate. Andy Turner hit the only goal on the stroke of half-time.

Leamington, who reached the FA Cup first round at Colchester, now face Barwell, who overcame Tipton Town 1-0, on May 8 at Bescot Stadium.

Romulus suffered a major blow to their Harvey World Travel Midland Alliance title hopes after basement side Rocester recorded a 4-2 win. The Sutton Coldfield side twice led through Jason Lanns and Tyrone Fagan but the Romans edged 3-2 ahead at half-time through Mark Ruddock, Adam Baum and Kevin Millward before Baum added his second in the last minute.

Paul White hit an injury-time winner to seal ten-man Racing Club Warwick's three points at Cradley Town. Warwick had led through Danny Williams but Ben Store slotted the equaliser from Mark Smith's header just before the hour and then Racing Club had Rob Betts dismissed.

Studley also left it late to defeat Causeway United 3-2 at the Beehive, with Shane Benjamin tucking home a last-minute penalty winner. Benjamin, back after a spell at Evesham, and Earl Jordan had twice put the Bees ahead.

Second-half goals from Ben Usher and Adrian Parkes earned Alvechurch a 2-0 home win against Oldbury United.
