ELY City made it four wins out of five with an impressive 2-1 win at home to promotion hopefuls Stanway Rovers.
Denis Lightning's men have been in imperious form of late and hit top gear once again on Saturday as they came from behind to beat a resilient Stanway side.
"We played really well and I think we were full value for the win. said Lightning, "we had a number of chances throughout and I think we dominated the game for large parts.
"The team are playing with confidence at the moment and hopefully we can continue that on until the end of the season."
Despite continual pressure from Ely in the first half it was Stanway who took the lead after Ben Newson nodded home from a free-kick.
Ely equalised early on in the second-half through Chris Sterecki, who met a pinpoint cross from wide on the right to volley home at the near post.
