Second time lucky at Illey Road after my previous attempt to watch a Bartley Green home game back in December was thwarted by a late postponement.

This time round, Bartley Green took the lead with a 33rd-minute penalty scored by Elliot Nash, only to go down to a second-half double netted by Heath Hayes substitute Alan Haycock in the 64th and then 78th minutes.

On the way to the game, I called in for possibly a last look at the soon to be demolished Oldbury Leisure Centre (pictures).
