WORCESTER City recorded a 10th away win of the season as their imperious record on the road continued at Slimbridge with a comprehensive victory on Saturday.

Elliot Hartley and Liam Lockett both scored directly from free-kicks in the first half after Kyle Belmonte's opener in the 12th minute to all-but seal the points before the break.

Substitute Cameron Monteith finished off a brilliant flowing move with a precise finish into the bottom corner after the break to wrap up another convincing win for City, who have dropped only two points away from home in the Hellenic League Premier this season.

City were on the front foot from the get-go in Gloucestershire and it was not long before they took the lead as Belmonte's first-time finish - his 24th goal of the season in all competitions - rippled the back of the net.

Slimbridge managed to turn the game into a bit of a scrap for the next 20 minutes as City took their foot off the gas following a rapid start but a free-kick on the edge of the box saw Hartley curl home low into the far corner as the visitors regained control.

Chris Cornes' side asserted their dominance for the closing 10 minutes of the half and right on the stroke of half-time, they scored again as Lockett's free-kick thundered in off the post.

Slimbridge were the side that ended City's long winning run back in November with a 1-1 draw at Claines Lane, but they were no match for Worcester this time out and despite having a couple of chances to pull a goal back through striker George Neill, it was a comfortable afternoon for the away side.

And they sealed the deal with 20 minutes to play as youngster Monteith finished a lovely team move with a low strike into the corner.

City remain second in the table, two points behind leaders Corsham Town after their last-minute victory at Hereford Pegasus, but still have four games in hand and remain in pole position for the title.
