Defensive lapses was becoming a bit of a theme and Dave Cockerill took advantage of a slack back pass to score between two defenders on 39 minutes.

The second half saw Teversal coming out looking sharper and pressing higher up the park preventing Ashby the time to play those defensive splitting balls that was causing the concern in the first period.

On 54 minutes Teversal took the lead after Dave Cockerill scored from the spot after his penalty had initially been saved.

And they made the game safe seven minutes later thanks to another penalty after Danny Fletcher had been brought down.

Cockerill stepped up and smashed home to seal his hat-trick and move top of the goalscoring charts for the league.
