A brace from Tyrell Waite was the perfect preparation for Tamworth ahead of Saturday’s huge FA Cup tie against Notts County.
Waite’s double against Stourbridge, along with another from Dan Creaney, set the rampant Lambs on their way to a comprehensive win.
Lathaniel Rowe-Turner suffered the embarrassment of scoring an own goal on his return to The Lamb as joint manager Danylyszyn praised his sides professionalism.
Danylyszyn said: “Stourbridge came out well early doors, but the lads worked them out as the game went on and we took control of the game.
“We said after Saturday [at Rushall] we had to back that tough win up today with three more points. For the lads to go through the mill on Saturday – and with that emotion – to come back and play like that is amazing and shows how professional they are.”
Tamworth threatened after eight minutes. Jack Concannon picked the ball up after a slick passing move before slipping in Creaney who couldn’t capitalise when one-on-one with the keeper.
Soon after, the Lambs were celebrating – and it came by way of a former player – Lathaniel Rowe Turner, who headed into his own net from Concannon’s cross.
Tomiwa Solanke threatened an immediate response for the visitors on a rare foray forward, but he was thwarted by a last-ditch block from Martin Riley.
A second goal came moments later from more conventional means. Concannon raced onto a misjudged clearance and laid off Creaney for an easy finish.
Tamworth had the game all but wrapped up five minutes before the break. Creaney won the ball back and had acres of space to run into and pick out a cross to Waite who delicately backheeled beyond Charlie Price.
Osebi Abadaki thought he had one back for the visitors. But after a short period of confusion, his goal was ruled out for offside.
Waite added the gloss on 74 minutes for the rampant home side. Stourbridge had six players in the box but none of them picked up Waite who was given an age to turn and roll a shot beyond Price.
One sour note from the game was the continuation of Tamworth’s injury problems. Isaac Currie, making his home debut for the Lambs, had to be carried off in the first half.
It adds to Tamworth’s ever-expanding list of missing players that includes Lucas Yeomans, Ben Hart, Shaquille McDonald and Jordaan Brown.
