Andy Brown (no.10) celebrates his second goal in Telford's 5-1 win at Droylsden

AFC Telford followed up their 5-1 win over Vauxhall Motors by beating Droylsden by the same score.

Phil Trainer fired Telford ahead early on with Andy Brown adding a penalty after Kevin Leadbetter was sent off for a foul on Lee Vaughan.

Tony Gray pulled one back and then saw a second effort come off the bar and cleared off the line by Shane Killock.

Telford's Jon Adams clinched the win on 88 minutes, before Trainer and Brown added a second each in injury time.

"I'm gobsmacked, to be honest," Telford assistant manager Larry Chambers told BBC Radio Shropshire.

"Droylsden don't lose many games at home, they don't concede many goals at home, and generally they score a lot of goals at home - so for us to come here and win 5-1 is a fantastic result."

The victory revived Telford's Blue Square North play-off hopes and they have now climbed to sixth in the table, one place behind Droylsden, with two home games to come in the next week.
