BOURTON Rovers did their title chances the power of good by blitzing rock-bottom Woodstock Town 9-0 – their biggest win of the season so far.

The deadlock was broken in the 18th minute when Dan Smith finished off a flowing team move from 10 yards but Rovers then dropped off the pace, allowing Woodstock back into the game.

The first half closed with Rovers one goal to the good yet a change in shape at half-time worked for Rovers, doubling their lead in the opening minute of the second half when Steve Nurse met a perfectly-placed cross by Josh Fielding.

A third followed quickly when Rovers were awarded a penalty and captain for the day Danny Way stepped up and calmly sent the keeper the wrong way.

Fielding got his reward for a fine display in the 70th minute to make it 4-0 as he coolly finished from 12 yards.

Nurse went on to register four goals with Keegan Bowes helping himself to a double in a late Bourton flurry.

Rovers sit fifth in Hellenic Division Two West, nine points off the summit with four games in hand on leaders Wantage Town development. They host fourth-placed Adderbury Park on Saturday (2.15).

Two goals from Liam Nimmo and one for Jamie Wyatt saw Moreton Rangers remain in the thick of the chase with a 3-0 home victory over Headington Amateurs.

Moreton ended the weekend with two games in hand on the teams above them and trail by two points and one point respectively.

They could head into Saturday's trip to Highworth Town reserves (2.15) on top should they win at Newent Town reserves on Wednesday night.
