Redditch United end their 25-match losing streak and pick up first points since August after they beat Nuneaton 3-2 on Saturday.
It was the losing side that broke the deadlock after 23 minutes when Isaiah Osbourne netted his first goal for the club who dominated large periods. And it could have come even earlier if Kieran Boucher didn’t produce a smart save to Riccardo Calder’s effort on the 2nd minute.
Redditch had their first attempt on target shortly after the break when Ryan Edmunds striked the post from 20 yards out.
They then turned the scoreline around, Romario Martin, got his first of the afternoon when he fired low past keeper Breeden Taimoor in the 54th minute, before Boubakar Traore then put the hosts ahead two minutes later when he was left alone in the box.
On the 61st minute, Nuneaton’s Callum Powell was dragged down in the box, had the chance to level the scoreline, but Boucher dived low to deny him.

Boro pressed for an equaliser as the game died out, but Redditch got their third through Martin again.
Miles Addison grabbed a consolation in the closing stages from a corner for the Boro, but it ended 3-2, seeing Redditch pick up their first win for 25 games, but still remain rock bottom of the Southern League with 12 points.
Fair to say they are very happy about it too…
