WORCESTER City came from a goal down to beat Westfields and continue their march towards the Hellenic League Premier title.

Dan Stoneman scored with the hosts’ first attack of the game just two minutes into the contest, but City battled their way back to stretch their winning run in the league to seven matches and remain three points clear at the summit.

Kyle Belmonte equalised from the spot later in the first half before City turned on the style after the break.

Elliot Hartley made it 2-1 inside 60 seconds of the restart and that set the visitors on their way to, what turned out to be in the end, another convincing victory.

Lorcan Sheehan headed in a third mid-way through the second half before Liam Lockett topped off another huge win for Chris Cornes’ men with a late fourth.

City thought they had a fifth in the closing stages when Taylor Townsend scored a screamer but the referee cut the celebrations short, but it mattered not to those away fans in attendance.

The result keeps City three points clear at the top of the league after Corsham Town also won. They survived a scare to league strugglers Thornbury Town in the second-half, holding out for a 2-1 victory thanks to first-half goals from Mark Cooper and Kye Simpson.

Worcester are back in action in mid-week when they face Westfields again, this time in the Marsh Challenge Cup quarter-finals.
