Khalsa arrested their alarming run of poor results in a frantic and entertaining clash which saw Ian Rowe‘s men leapfrog their visitors into fourth spot.

Goals by Marvin Nisbett and Brad Lawley were the deciding factor as Khalsa took a 2-0 lead at half-time having dominated proceeding in the first half, only for Shepshed to wrestle back the momentum after the break.

The visitors grabbed a goal back and were undoubtedly the dominant side in the second period, roared on by their brilliant away support, a boisterous and exuberant band of followers who could teach the supporters of some clubs at this level a thing about the spirit of non-league football.

Khalsa missed the opportunity to make the second half a much more comfortable affair, Dave Meese‘s penalty being well saved mid-way through the half.

The win means Khalsa are back on track ahead of Wednesday’s cup game against Paget Rangers and next Saturday’s visit to Loughborough.
