ELY City edged closer to mid-table respectability at the weekend thanks to a polished 2-0 win at Woodbridge Town.

Front-pair Robbie Mason and Owen Kessack did the damage for the Robins, scoring either side of half-time to cap a decent performance in a must-win game for the ever-improving Robins.

The win moves the Robins up into 12th place in the Ridgeons Premier League ahead of their clash with promotion hopefuls Stanway at the weekend.

Boss Denis Lightning said: "It wasn't a great game to be honest but I said to the lads at half-time that sometimes you have got to win scruffy and that is what we did.

Mason bagged Ely's first from the penalty spot after the referee blew up for a handball five minutes short of half-time.
