HIGH-flying Ely City made it nine league games without defeat after coming from behind to beat CRC.

The Robins looked stunned as the visitors raced into a 2-0 lead within the opening 10 minutes but a determined fight-back saw them pull it back to 3-3 going in at half-time.

Centre-back Ben Lawrence ultimately proved the difference between the two sides in a nip and tuck contest as he nodded home a second-half winner to hand Ely all three points.

Alan Alsop’s men sit eighth in the Ridgeons Premier League, just three points behind third-placed Stanway Rovers.

CRC’s failure to clear from set pieces allowed Ely to get back into the match after a swift double had seen the visitors race into the lead.

Richard Chadwick nodded home first to make it 2-1 before Kenny Smith fired home to bring the teams level.

Ely were briefly in front 10 minutes before half-time as Chris Sterecki’s cross-cum-shot squeezed home before the visitors rallied to make it 3-3.

Lawrence capitalised once again on CRC’s failure to deal with set pieces as he nodded home the winner midway through the second half.
