DELIGHTED Bromsgrove Sporting boss Brendan Kelly couldn't have asked for more as his rampant Rouslers brushed bottom of the table North Leigh aside this week.

The match was effectively over by half time as the Rouslers raced into a 5-0 lead and the score remained that way for the second half.

In truth, the outcome was probably secure within the space of 13 minutes as Sporting went 3-0 up through goals from Jason Cowley, Kyle Lincoln and Kieren Westwood.

Cameron Peters plundered a fourth goal on 20 minutes before Cowley cracked home his second which took him to a personal milestone of 101 goals for the club.

Kelly confirmed: "We were devastating in the opening stages and we'd given North Leigh a mountain to climb after 13 minutes. By half time, it was job done.

"All five goals were well worked, there were no 'gimmies'.

"I know North Leigh are bottom, but you can only beat what is put in front of you.

"It meant we were able to change things around in the second half with young Matt Higgins from the Under-18's coming on and getting some game time and experience playing in front of a packed shed end.

"But what was equally pleasing was the fact we were missing a number of key players.

"Charlie Dowd went down with a bug while Nathan Hayward failed a late fitness test.

"We were also without Will Shorrock and Tom Taylor, while Richard Gregory was on the bench, but wasn't required.

"I brought in Jake Heath and Dan O'Sullivan who did really well.

"North Leigh did a bit better in the second half and were awarded a penalty which Jono Brown saved.

"He was desperate to keep a clean sheet.

"It means we've won our last six games since the defeat to Dunstable, but equally we've only conceded one goal in the last four games".

The victory was witnessed by just over 1,000 supporters and Kelly claimed: "They are amazing! We've got supporters coming from all over and I hope we're giving them good value.

"I also hope the supporters keep coming because we'll need everyone of them for the next home game against Corby Town on March 23.

"If we could beat the 1400 crowd we got against Sutton Coldfield Town, that would be something as I know Corby will bring plenty of support".

Kelly added: "We still haven't given up hope of winning the league and we'll keep going while it remains mathematically possible.

"If we were to win all our remaining games it would give us 92 points. If league leaders Peterborough Sports beat that total, then they deserve to win the title".

Sporting have no fixture this Saturday."
