A goal on the stroke of half-time was enough for Tamworth to pick up a gritty win over Stockport.

Tom Marshall headed wide from Peter Till's cross early on for the hosts, and it looked as if that would be as good as it got going into the break.

But Sam Oji was on hand to nod in Scott Barrow's free kick from six yards out in first-half stoppage time.

Neither side went close to troubling the scoreline in the second period, with the visitors particularly quiet.
