LIAM Wood scored his first goal for Radcliffe as they came from behind to beat Market Drayton Town 2-1 at the Neuven Stadium.

Jon Macken’s side dominated, creating numerous chances and looking comfortable playing out from the back throughout a victory that keeps them firmly in the title race, eight points behind leaders Atherton Collieries but with two games in hand.

After Boro’s Michael Fowler had shot wide early on, the visitors drew first blood on 17 minutes, right-back Louis Irvine cutting in from the left and unleashing a powerful strike that gave Ollie Martin no chance.

Boro drew level when man-of-the-match Scott Metcalfe’s cross found Callum Grogan, who had lost his marker, and he powered in at close range to make it 1-1.

Rick Smith’s header almost gave Boro the lead, but Andrew Hurtleberry cleared for the visitors and Elliot Rokka could only find the back of the stand when he was given a chance to shoot.

Radcliffe’s winner came 15 minutes from time, substitute Wood keeping his cool when Rokka’s pass gave him the one-on-one opportunity and he slotted home his first goal in a Boro shirt.

Macken’s men are now undefeated in their last seven matches in all competitions, and are now starting to recapture their early-season form.

Boro travel to Kidsgrove Athletic this Saturday for a league fixture.

Kick off is 3pm.
