Worcester City manager Andy Preece's quest for a regular marksman has dominated his thoughts for the first half of the season but the form of Mark Danks is enabling him to finally relax.
Danks notched his sixth goal since his arrival from Forest Green Rovers last month to spark City's 2-1 win at Hucknall Town and extend their unbeaten run to ten matches.
Danks showed his predatory instincts to fire home on the turn when Tom Warmer's shot deflected to his feet on ten minutes. Though it was 1-1 just before half-time through Greg Paterson, Danks turned creator nine minutes after half-time with a deep cross which Leon Kelly headed home.
Moor Green, who visit Worcester tonight in their Worcestershire Senior Cup semi-final, were indebted to young striker Sean Dowdall for earning them a point at home to Stalybridge Celtic.
Steve Garvey gave the visitors an 18th-minute lead but substitute Dowdall headed home the equaliser seven minutes from time from a Darren Middleton cross.
Duane Darby's third goal in four games could not earn title-chasing Nuneaton Borough three points as they were pegged back by Lancaster City at the Giant Axe.
Darby, signed from Shrewsbury Town, struck after just six minutes for second-placed Boro when he punished a defensive blunder but Lancaster levelled through Alex Taylor on 68 minutes.
Hednesford Town slumped to the foot of the table after a second-half goal avalanche sent them to a 8-0 rout at Boro's title rivals, Northwich Victoria.
The Vics, managed by former Pitmen hero Steve Burr, led 2-0 at half-time through Mark Sale and Michael Byrne but Paul Bray-son added a third after the break and the floodgates opened. Byrne completed a hat-trick and Chris Williams (2) and Danny Mayman left the Pitmen shell-shocked. ..SUPL:
