Willenhall convincingly beat local rivals Wednesfield without having to get into top gear.


It wasn't a time for silky football skills in difficult conditions on a soaky, bumpy, muddy pitch but the visitors stuck to their task to see off the league's basement club.


The visitors opened the scoring on 10 minutes when a scuffed cross by Jason Smith got tangled in keeper Jones leg and ended up in the net.


With the conditions frustrating the sides, and with Town having the upper hand it came as no surprise when they went further in front on 26 minutes following a beautifully crafted set piece. Deep in his own half skipper Creighton sent a free kick deep into the home defence, keeper Jones started to come to collect the ball but Bromley stretched out his leg to strike the ball first time and send it screeching past the stranded keeper.


A minute later and Moseley drove through the Wednesfield defence like a hot knife through butter before seeing his effort go just wide.


Wednesfield were given a lifeline on 35 minutes when their sub fell in the box and a generous penalty was awarded. Up stepped Saville only to see his effort saved by the hand of a diving Vaughan.


With his first touch of the game sub Walker added to the score in the 63rd minute when he rose head and shoulders above everyone to head home the third.


Only several outstanding saves by keeper Jones kept the visitors at bay, but he was powerless to prevent the final goal which completed the convincing win, Moseley ran from the half way line before setting up another sub Bullimore who netted the 4th in added time.


Willenhall face a tough week ahead with an away match on Saturday against leaders Stourbridge, then on Tuesday 18th they visit second placed Oadby. A week on Saturday (22nd) high flyers Quorn are the visitors.
