FOUR goals from Demetri Brown after half-time saw Worcester City run riot in the second-half against Haughmond and record a thumping 6-0 win.

It had been an even contest for the first 40 minutes but Brown headed the hosts into the lead just before the break, a goal that proved decisive.

City charged out of the blocks and scored four goals in 16 minutes as Brown completed his hat-trick with two more and Will Gibbons and Aaron Roberts also got in on the act.

Brown scored his fourth in stoppage time to complete the rout and move City into fourth place in the Midland Football League Premier.

For the second time in three days, City faced a side battling against relegation at the bottom of the league.

After beating bottom side Bewdley Town in the derby last weekend 3-0, the hosts were in confident mood but their visitors proved a tough nut to crack.

Worcester 'keeper Adam Harrison did well to keep it goalless early on and then only some good defending from Josh Schuck prevented the visitors from taking the lead.

City grew into it and eventually took the lead five minutes before half time when Will Gibbons' cross was headed home by Brown.

If they struggled in the first-half, City ran riot in the second and Brown added his second just three minutes after the restart before George Baker's cross was turned home by Gibbons in the 52nd minute to make it 3-0.

The hosts were flying and it became 4-0 when Brown headed home from a corner to complete his hat-trick four minutes later.

Roberts assisted one at Bewdley last weekend but this time it was his turn to celebrate a goal as he nodded home from a matter of yards at the back post to make it 5-0 with 29 minutes still to play.

The hosts had chances to add to their tally but it was not until the final play that they found a sixth as Brown managed to find the back of the net with his fourth of the evening to seal a comprehensive win.
