Scott Ruthven’s second half goal won the Sheffield derby for Stocksbridge Park Steels, while also heavily increasing their play-offs hopes.
With games against rivals Lincoln United and AFC Rushden & Diamonds coming up in the next week, destiny is their own hands.
Early pressure from the Steels ended with Joe Lumsden firing home after a scramble.
Sheffield forced an equaliser after the break. There was controversy as Stocksbridge had a player down on the ground with a head injury when Lee Cooksey fired home.
Ruthven’s deflected effort placed Stocksbridge back in front and they held on despite relentless pressure form Sheffield.
