Sam Grouse was on target again to maintain Ashby Ivanhoe's run of form.

Ivanhoe sealed victory with a second half goal from Grouse - and moved to second spot in the Midland League Division One table.

But Bridgnorth were reduced to 10 men before the break when Will Robson pulled out a mesmerising piece of skill to dance around Bridgnorth's player manager Jason Pike.

Pike did not react well, he made no attempt to get the ball and took Robson's legs from under him, earning a straight red card.

Ivanhoe put Bridgnorth under prolonged periods of pressure and played the ball round well, but efforts from Ash Garner, Grouse and Robson went narrowly wide or forced a save.

Joe Neal went close with a header as Ashby forced the pace.

But then Robson's blocked shot fell to Grouse 10 minutes from time, and he made no mistake as he struck his effort into the bottom corner past the helpless goalkeeper.

Ivanhoe defended well throughout as they earned a crucial victory.

Ashby have a midweek match tonight (Tuesday) as they travel Ludlow to play Shawbury.
