Tamworth suffered their second successive defeat as they were beaten by Braintree Town.

Michael Gash gave the home side the lead, arriving late at the back post to force the ball home from close range.

The Lambs equalised before the break through Adam Cunnington's smart finish from 12 yards.

But the Iron took the lead again as Dan Holman netted from the penalty spot and he could have added a third in stoppage time but his curling shot drifted wide.
