KINGTON Town manager Sam Bowen believes his team can now start climbing the West Midlands (Regional) League Division One table after a fine 3-2 win over high-flying Team Dudley.

The Mill Street outfit have languished near the foot of the division all season and a defeat against bottom club Willenhall Town in their previous game was the last thing they needed.

But goals from Ryan Nicholas, Tom Murphy and Callum Davies saw Bowen pick up his second win as Yellows boss after taking over the club in November.

"For the fist time, we look like a team that are gelling," said Bowen, who came on as a substitute in the match.

"We made six or seven changes from the team that lost at Willenhall and I thought we thoroughly deserved to win with the amount of chances we had.

"We only had about 40% of the ball, but we were a little bit better in the final third.

"We've got Telford Juniors away on Saturday and if we win there, we'll be three points them with two games in hand.

"So we could start dragging other teams down with us."

Bowen confirmed that he is looking to put in seven-day notices on a couple of players this week in order to strengthen his squad, while influential striker Sam Pearson will be back in training following injury.

Team Dudley, managed by former Port Vale, Stoke, Coventry and Hereford United striker Lee Mills, are fifth in the division.

But it was Kington who opened the scoring in the eighth minute when Nicholas poked home a corner before Murphy added a second.

Team Dudley came back into the game and levelled thanks to Jake Taylor and Lee Clarke.

But Kington who went on to win the game thanks to a stunning strike from Davies with 20 minutes remaining.

It was also a good day for Bromyard Town, who thrashed Telford Juniors 5-1.

Graham Glenister's side are 10th in the division, but only six points off third placed Old Wulfrunians.
