Goals from Simon Bagel, Dan Pike and Ricky Lawrence helped SPEC FC boost their chances of avoiding the drop with a thrilling victory over promotion-chasing Shirley at the Ark.

Jamie Kent and Dan Oade found the net for Shirley.

SPEC goal-scoring hero Ricky Lawrence told JC Sport: "We knew we had to win, and even at 2-1 down with about 10 minutes to go we still thought we had a chance to do so. We kept pushing right to the last minute and it paid off."

Shirley boss Dave Lusman told JC Sport: "I'm not very happy - at 2-1 up with 10 minutes on the clock to go, we found ourselves short in midfield after several clumsy and late challenges resulted in our centre midfielders Dan Abrahams and Ran Subara hobbling around the pitch and with no subs - it was game over.
