SIX second-half goals for Peartree Wanderers ensured they stayed on top of the Division Three table after a 6-0 win over Bradmore Rovers Reserves.

A goalless first half, with Rovers choosing to play uphill, saw chances fall to both sides on Sunday.

Wanderers defender Dave Twohig had a fierce effort from the edge of the box tipped over while Mark Hemmings hit the crossbar and had a goal disallowed for offside.

Stand-in Peartree keeper Ollie Rouse showed a safe pair of hands to keep out the Bradmore forwards.

In the second period, despite playing uphill, Wanderers dominated.

They took the lead through full-back Jay Farrelly. His free-kick was put around the wall and into the bottom left corner.

As they continued to pile on the pressure, Wanderers doubled their lead.

Winger Len Hart's defence splitting pass found striker Matt Wheeler, who got away from the last defender before finding the back of the net.

Hart then got on the scoresheet when he tucked home from close range from a low Hemmings cross.

As Rovers caved in, Farrelly made it four with his second of the game.

His high cross from the right swirled in the wind, looped over the keeper and in under the bar.

Nick Harris played in Hart for number five before substitute Lewis Kirkby completed the scoring from a Mike Curtis through ball.
