Newark Flowserve are back to winning ways in the Midland Football League after demolishing Racing Club Warwick 5-0 at Lowfields last night.
Newark had previously lost to league leaders Coventry United before being held by Long Eaton and losing on Saturday at Worcester City to go winless in three league games but are now just two points behind the top of the table team after a convincing display in the cold and wind.
The home side took the lead early when Zak Goodson netted and were 2-0 up when Jamie Lloyd headed in at the back post. Flowserve went 3-0 up following an own goal before Zak Goodson netted his second with Danny Meadows rounding things off after slotting home neatly.
In a tight looking Midland League table Newark are fifth on 32 points from 17 games played but with two games in hand on Coventry at the top who are on 34 points.
At the other end Selston prop up the table after Gresley overtook them at the weekend, the West Notts outfit again had their game called off last night, this time at Bolehall Swifts and have played just 13 matches this season with three games in hand on 19th placed Gresley and five in hand on Lye Town who are five points above the bottom placed team.
Elsewhere in Northern Counties East League action last night AFC Mansfield drew for the fifth time this season this time at Goole after leading 2-0 through early goals from Luke Walker and Ross Duggan the Bulls conceded in 28 minutes when Waud scored and held out with a slender advantage until 85 but couldn’t take maximum points eventually conceding to Terence Barwick’s leveller.
AFC who are without a league win since August are now in 18th place but six points above Athersley Recreation at the bottom of the table.
