There's no stopping the Premier Division's in form team Woodford. The win at Royal Oak Way made it a dozen matches without defeat for Phil Mason's men. A Ben Milner spot kick on the half hour, awarded for a foul by Dave Bond on Russ Dunkley, split the sides at the break but when Nicky Gordon brushed aside Joe Rich's challenge to score his 18th goal of the season two minutes into the second half the Reds were well on the way to another success. Dunkley punished a handling error by Motormen keeper Shaun Markie to add a third goal after 65 minutes and ten minutes later Neil King rounded off the scoring, turning smartly to fire past Markie whose hand injury prompted his replacement by Roger Leeson for the final quarter of an hour.
