Braintree returned to winning ways with a comfortable victory over 10-man Tamworth.

Lee Hildreth picked up a second yellow in the 32nd minute for a foul on James Mulley just two minutes after his first for a bad challenge on Jordan Cox.

The Iron took the lead as Ryan Peters connected with Cox's cross to sweep home his first goal for the club.

Midfielder Mulley sealed the points when he fired into the bottom right corner from a Daniel Sparkes pass.
