Kyle Fair slams home the opening goal in our 5-0 win over Gazza's Lads this afternoon.

Brook Street took another step towards the league title this afternoon by defeating Gazza’s Lads 5-0, the win maintaining our five-point advantage over nearest challengers FC MUNRO and Flisk Wanderers.

With games starting to run out, the New Home Park side are firmly in control as Arjen Bogaert acknowledged afterwards.

“We know that as long as we keep winning, we are in the driving seat and the pressure will build on our challengers”.

He continued, “I don’t think anyone has ever played down our chances of winning the title as, if I’m being honest, on paper we’re the best side in the league. That in itself could have brought pressure on our players and myself, however the players at this club are superbly professional in everything they do and this shows in the way we play”.

That professionalism was there for all to see this afternoon as Gazza’s Lads were comprehensively dismantled.

Kyle Fair hit the opener after eighteen minutes and within the space of sixty seconds Igor Bulatov had made it 2-0.

Dan Zieleznik pounced after thirty-four minutes to fire home our third goal, but the Athletic fans had to wait until seven minutes into the second half before Onesimo Murube added a fourth.

With sixty-four minutes on the clock, a super move sliced the home defence apart to allow Jose Eransus to fire home the fifth and final goal.

Street could have added another two goals, but the woodwork denied Fons Consheim while Nelson Pacheco superbly denied Kyle Fair’s volleyed effort with four minutes remaining.

“Yes I would have liked more goals”, said the coach, “but we’re pulling away from the qualification line and I’ve just been told we’re now ranked twenty-third overall and third of the teams with twenty-two points. We’re ready to capitalise on any slip-ups above us”.

Athletic will get the chance to improve their goal difference next weekend when bottom side Central Rangers visit New Home Park.
