Jamie Kightley, Sam Sterry and Darren Lightbown were also on target.

Asfordby FC Development lost a little ground on the top three when they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Shepshed Amateurs Reserves, with Leon Martin on target.

* In Division Three, Bottesford FC Reserves lost their 100 per cent record as they were beaten by leaders Sporting Markfield who made it seven wins out of seven.

George Crowther, Benedict Cullen and substitute Iain Marshall were all on target for Bottesford, but they were outgunned as the visitors went away 5-3 winners.

Bottesford stayed second, but slipped six points behind Markfield with a game in hand.
