Matt Melbourne's two goals - one in either half - moved 14th placed Shepshed up the table and the Yeltz could have little complaints at the result.

Melbourne had already missed a chance to fire past Daniel Platt with only the keeper to beat but headed in just after on 20 minutes to make it 1-0 at half time.

Simeon Cobourne missed a good chance for Halesowen and captain Paul McCone saw a header go wide.

But when Melbourne made it 2-0 on 68 minutes it looked all over for Halesowen though their cause was helped when Shepshed hoff foad Niall Prenderville sent off for a two footed challenge on Gregory.

A handball in the box three minutes from time gave Gregory the chance to reduce the deficit and he made no mistake.
