Wealdstone got back to winning ways this afternoon (November 30) after scoring three second half goals against visitors Concord Rangers.
It was a much-needed win for The Stones as they extended the gap at the top of the table to six points.
Neither side grabbed the first-half by the scruff of the neck with the first 45 lacking any real chances.
The first big and only chance of the half fell to Mendy who might suffer nightmares from his miss.
Great play on the wing from Lewis ended in his low cross finding Mendy in the box who missed his chance in front of an open goal.
It was that man again as Mendy found himself alone in the box on 45 minutes who once again didn’t take advantage and put his effort wide.
With neither side scoring in the first half, it didn’t take long for Mendy to repay his earlier misses as he scored five minutes into the second half.
After Jebb’s cross into the box, Mendy set himself and striked low into the bottom corner to fire the home side into the lead. 1-0.
The Stones doubled their lead by Ross Lafayette who volleyed home on the 69th minute after Clifford’s pass flicked up off his heel. 2-0.
Lafayette’s fine strike was his 13th goal in all competitions this season.
With Wealdstone dominating, a great piece of defending prevented them from scoring their third as Connor Stevens effort was cleared off the line.
92 minutes on the clock and Phillips sealed the three points in style after his long surging run from the half-way line ended in him slotting the ball past the Rangers’ goalkeeper. 3-0.
Stones’ centre-half Connor Stevens was shown a red card by the referee just before the full-time whistle which was the only negative for the home side this afternoon.
Wealdstone’s three nil win put them six points clear at the top. They next play Bath City away from home next weekend (December 7).
