SOHAM Town Rangers brought an end to their miserable losing run on Tuesday night with a 2-1 win at Barton Rovers.
The Greens came into the game without a league win in six matches but thanks to the efforts of Michael Simspon were finally able to claim three points and lift themselves out of the bottom three.
Delighted boss Ian Benjamin, said: "We have lacked a bit of resilience this year and I let the lads know before the game that we needed to show a bit of steel and we needed to talk more at the back and I think we showed that last night.
"We looked nervous for the first 20 minutes but after we settled into our game we looked good and I think in the end we deserved the three points. If you want to get rewards you have to stick at things and we have been doing that."
