Warminster Town 5 Bishop Sutton 0

On a sticky pitch, Warminster Town started the day looking to make it a run of 12 unbeaten games. Bishop Sutton lying in 8th place, would be looking to ensure the unbeaten run would end. The home side made the target with a high-tempo performance and finished as 5-0 winners.

The opening goal came in the 19th minute. An in-swinging corner kick taken by the captain, Ian Jeffrey, was met on the near post by Martin Johnson and headed home past the keeper on the line.

The next goal came five minutes later. Cockerill tried to cross the ball in from the left, which was deflected and fell into the path of Bartley. From 25 yards out, Bartley’s right-footed shot flew into the goal’s bottom right corner, flashing past the keeper’s outstretched left arm.

A super long-range ball from Johnson on the right was met by the head of the diving Seviour by the far post beating the keeper and making it 3-0 in the 33rd minute.

Bishop Sutton went close with 4 minutes left of normal time when Warminster momentarily switched off. Thomson, however, produced a fine save when a shot came in from the Bishop’s right towards his near post.

Goal number 4 came in the 65th minute. Conner McKay was clattered to the floor as he passed to Miluk. The referee didn’t blow for the foul, which allowed Miluk to run into the penalty area and fire home low into the left corner of the net.

Four minutes later, Miluk was again involved in the move, having come across to the left. Running along the 18-yard line, he crossed the ball over to the right, which was met perfectly by the head of Lewis Graham and headed back across the goal into the left side. The keeper was left stranded by his post and could only watch the ball go by for the fifth goal.

Another satisfying performance for Warminster Town, a clean sheet too, and keeps them very much in contention with the top of the league.
