DUDLEY Town and Dudley Sports secured their West Midlands Premier League survival with a derby day draw.

The two rivals ended the campaign outside the dropzone thanks to the 2-2 stalemate at the Dell Stadium last Saturday.

Sports twice led through Ronee Hendricks and Connor Rich before Alex Cameron and Lewis Worsey levelled matters.

Rich's strike meant he scored for both sides in both derby games this season. He netted for the Robins in the first fixture earlier in the season and then scored for Sports last weekend.

Sports boss Tony Gore said: "The way it panned out I think a draw was probably a fair result in the end.

"Our keeper has made two or three really good saves late on.

"The draw was good enough for both teams and I'm delighted that we stayed up.

"It was looking grim at one stage a few weeks ago but the players found the wins when they needed them."

Robins manager Dean Whitehouse said: "I though we were the better side overall but they have scored from both their chances.

"If you'd have told me at Christmas that we'd stay up I wouldn't have believed it. We've improved a lot since then.

"We now need to get some experience in and start to look ahead. We can't be involved in a relegation battle again."
