STUDLEY produced an excellent display to defeat Rocester 2-0 at the Beehive on Tuesday and lift themselves out of the Midland Alliance bottom three.
Goals from strikers Jamie Bailey and Lei Brown clinched a thoroughly deserved victory for Lee Adams' side which lifted them up three places into 17th and they have a fine chance to further boost their survival prospects tomorrow when they visit rock-bottom Willenhall Town.
The Bees have now won three home league matches in succession and the success will have pleased Adams, who watched his side get completely outplayed in their last encounter on home soil when Tipton Town sealed a 1-0 win in the first leg of the Polymac Services League Cup.
If Studley can secure a first away league win since mid-December in tomorrow's clash it would also serve as the perfect fillip ahead of another cup semi-final on Tuesday when they visit Bewdley Town in the last four of the Worcestershire Senior Urn seeking a victory which would book a final date against Alvechurch.
On Saturday the Bees were very unlucky to suffer a late 1-0 loss at title-chasing Coventry Sphinx.
The Bees more than matched their hosts in terms of possession and territory in a match of very few clear chances and looked well set to return with a hard earned point.
However, Jamie McAteer scrambled home an 89th minute winner for the hosts to leave the Bees in despair.
Studley had played the better football and were desperately unlucky not to take the lead on the hour mark when Sphinx keeper Carl O'Neill made a superb save from Brown, who then struck the post with his follow up effort.
