IN a game of missed chances by both sides, a solitary goal from Neil Black gave Colwyn Bay the points against their Leicestershire opponents.
That’s 10 points out of a possible 12 in their last four games for the Seagulls, and puts them to within five points of the top five play-off places.
Their position was also helped by defeats for both Grantham and Gresley Rovers, while Belper dropped two points in a home draw.
Black should have scored at least a hat-trick from the chances he had, but the only goal of the game came 73 seconds into the second half when he broke with the ball from a scramble in the centre circle and outpaced the chasing defenders to fire low past Quorn keeper Sean Bowles for his 23rd goal of the campaign.
Black's pace caused problems to the Quorn defence all afternoon and after hitting the bar with a header in the first half, he mishit a rebound wide of a gaping goal after the keeper came off his line to block his first shot. And in the second half he again shot inches wide of the post with the keeper once more out of his ground.
Bowles, however, kept his side in the game with fine saves to deny Black, Joe Fowler and Anthony Wright, who also had a goal disallowed for offside, and thanks to those saves Quorn might have snatched something from the game, but for three bad misses by Justin Jenkins late in the game.
