MELKSHAM Town moved closer to the Southern League Division One South play-off positions courtesy of a thumping 4-0 victory away at Cinderford Town last weekend.

Mark Collier's men struck three times before the break to put the game out of Cinderford's reach, and a fourth goal early in the second period wrapped up a comfortable afternoon for the Wiltshire outfit.

Alex Henshall kicked off the scoring after breaking forward and exchanging passes with Albie Hopkins.

Another ex-Swindon Town player - Ralph Graham - doubled the visitors' advantage by side-footing the ball home following good work from Hopkins and Luke Hopper on the Melksham left.

Jay Malshanskyj latched onto a wayward Cinderford pass to make it three prior to half-time.

After playing a part in the first two Yellow and Black goals, Hopkins decided to join in the goal scoring and seal the 4-0 success when he broke clear and slipped the ball under Cinderford's goalkeeper.

Division rivals Westbury United were not in action at the weekend or in midweek.
