WOOFFERTON continued their pursuit of Herefordshire League Division One leaders Kingstone Rovers following an emphatic 4-0 win at Weston-under-Penyard.

But with Rovers beating Orleton Colts Reserves 2-1, the Blues remain four points adrift going into this weekend’s match with Ewyas Harold Reserves.

On a tricky pitch it was no surprise that the opening goal was a scrappy affair, with Dean Harding’s header being touched over the line by Andy Pugh.

Tom Ballard then scored with a speculative 40 yard cross-shot from a free-kick with Harding making it 3-0 after Jack Pound had squared the ball to him inside the box.

Pugh netted his second of the game when he rounded the keeper to make it 4-0.

But the win was tinged with disappointment with the news that Luke Pugh will be out for the rest of the season after sustaining a nasty injury in the first half.

Manager Malcolm Barnard said: “It was, and is a real blow. He took a bad knock to his ankle and had to be taken to Ross Hospital.

“'On a positive, it was a great win away and we kept a clean sheet.”
