Redditch United and Moor Green sealed convincing wins to ease their worries near the foot of the table.
Rod Brown's shake- up reaped rewards when, inspired by debutant Jermaine Clarke, they chalked up a 3-1 win at fellow strugglers Hyde United.
Headers by Craig Wilding and Sean Flynn put the Reds 2-0 up at half time and Simon Hollis added a third after 47 minutes before former Walsall striker Neil Tolson replied for Hyde.
Moors gained their first home league win by crushing Leigh RMI 4-1. Phil Midworth's own goal gave the visitors the 41st-minute lead but Phil Trainer equalised before half time.
And three goals in the final seven minutes gave Moors the win, with substitute Sean Dowdall, Lee Collins and Gary McPhee on target.
Worcester City also enjoyed a home victory after Des Lyttle's strike was enough to defeat Barrow. The City captain (left) headed home on 35 minutes but his side's first league win since August 20 was not enough to push them out of the bottom three.
Hednesford Town were left stunned when a bizarre lastminute own-goal cost them victory at Worksop Town.
Colin Hunter gave the Pitmen a fifthminute lead, only for Ben Saunders and Richard Carrington to put the hosts in front but two goals in three minutes from substitute Paul McMahon gave the Pitmen the edge.
After both sides had a player sent off - Steve Brannan Town and Blake Norton for the hosts - Worksop levelled when Mark Wilson's free-kick struck visitors defender Lee Barrow and ended in the net.
High-flying Nuneaton Borough had to settle for a goalless draw at home to Stalybridge Celtic after playing 48 minutes with ten men after centre-back Simon Rea had been sent off.
