Manager Nigel Upson made changes, with Ryan Moss back in goal as Tom Mardle and Andy Simmons also returned.

But the visitors found it hard to settle on a poor pitch and Sun Sports applied the early pressure, hitting the crossbar from a free-kick.

Solomon Dowadu was a threat to the home defence, though, and Vinnie Davino blasted a good chance over.

Mardle and Simmons had other chances, as Alfie Gibbs and Dylan Woodford got a grip on midfield.

And Social struck just a minute into the second half when Dowadu fired home from the penalty spot, after a foul on Dale Stewart.

Hayden Evanson and Simmons missed further chances and Woodford fired over, before man of the match Dowadu doubled the tally nine minutes from time, heading home from Gibbs’ pinpoint cross.
