RUTHLESS finishing from Ely City ensured they came out on top against Norwich United on Tuesday evening.
In a game that had few clear-cut chances for either side, it was the Robins' superior finishing that told as they netted in either half to take the win.
The victory moves Denis Lightning's men up into 10th place with just two games remaining this season.
Ely started the brighter of the two teams and found themselves a goal to the good with just 10 minutes on the clock as Nick Impey rounded two players before smashing past the United keeper from range.
The Planters briefly rallied in the wake of the goal with keeper Pacey called in to action, but Ely again took control midway through the half with chances for Richard Chadwick and Tony Beck well saved by the home keeper.
The second half was a drab affair compared to the opening 45, but Ely managed to sta in the ascendancy despite muted efforts from the home side.
