SURVIVAL is firmly in Vauxhall Motors’ hands after captain Josh Wilson fired them to a second win in three days on Easter Monday.
Wilson’s second-half strike saw off the challenge of play-off contenders Stalybridge Celtic and put the Motormen two points clear of the Blue Square North drop spots.
Carl Macauley’s side, who climbed out of the bottom three on Saturday with a 3-2 success at Solihull Moors, have now taken an incredible 19 points from the last 24 on offer.
Top scorer Wilson, the league’s player of the month for March, said: “We’d like to take as many points as we can. We have still got to play Bishop’s Stortford.
“It is still in our hands.”
Wilson also saluted boss Macauley, who has had a positive impact since returning to Rivacre Park as manager in November.
“Carl coming back has made a massive difference,” said Wilson.
“He has bags of experience and potential and everyone across non-league knows he is one of the best managers around.”
Monday’s 1-0 home victory over Jim Harvey’s Stalybridge moved Motors up to fifth from bottom going into this Saturday’s trip to Bishop’s Stortford (3pm).
Tom Hannigan, Wilson (pen) and Dan Parkinson were on target as Vauxhall came from three goals down to win at Solihull on Saturday.
