Raunds' survival prospects suffered a setback as the prolific Miles Hunter filled his boots again.
The woodwork denied him an early goal as he thudded a half volley against the crossbar from Tom Ward's cross.
Hunter's deflected opener on the quarter hour was cancelled out by Leigh Chapman's reply for ther Shopmates five minutes later.
The visitors went back in front after 54 minutes with Hunter again the marksman after good work by Martin Wormall, and three minutes later Wormall strengthened their hold on the points.
Hunter completed his hat trick eight minutes from time, slotting home from the spot after Wormall was brought down.
