STUDLEY left it late to snatch a 3-2 success at lowly Littleton this week.

Brandon Hague struck a last minute winner to seal the points as Studley climb to sixth spot in Midland League Division One.

Studley boss John Edwards said: "We didn't play well, in fact we were quite poor - but we got the win and that's what mattered.

"We went 1-0 up quite early in the game and I think some of my players thought it was going to be easy.

"But Littleton have improved recently and they also have a number of former Studley players in their side, which meant it was always going to be tough as they would have had a point to prove."

Prolific marksman Sean Brain netted twice for Studley, taking his tally to 12 goals in five games.

Edwards added: "Sean's really happy where he is at the moment and has turned down offers from higher ranked clubs to remain at Studley.

"He needs a run of games because he will only get better if he does."

Studley were due to face Highgate United this week in the semi-final of the Worcestershire Senior Urn before travelling to Rocester on Saturday.
