MONMOUTH Town made it four wins on the bounce by hitting Wattsville for six without reply at the Sportsground on Saturday.

The Gwent Premier League top-tier fixture saw the Kingfishers blast into a 4-0 lead inside half an hour.

Lewis Lloyd opened the scoring after just three minutes following good play down the left from Harry Bailey and Jacob Perrella. And only four minutes later, Finn Thorp doubled the lead firing underneath the keeper.

That became three on 19 minutes when a ball from Oscar Elias found Perrella unmarked at the back post who slotted in to the top left-hand corner.

Eight minutes later it was 4-0 as Josh Maksimovic scored his 10th goal in five games, breaking clear to flick home past the keeper.

He had a chance to score again three minutes later, but a Wattsville defender blocked it on the line.

Monmouth reached half-time in cruise control, and there was no further scoring until two minutes from time when Matthew Jones was felled in the box and Maksimovic fired his second from the spot for 5-0.

And right on time, a delightful chip from Elias found the net to make it six, leaving the Kingfishers sixth with eight games left, starting at home to second-placed Pill on Wednesday (April 10).

But the 2nds had to give second best away to Undy 3rds in East Gwent One, losing 4-2 to two late goals after going 2-0 up through goals from Oliver Moss and Sam Williams.

The Kingfishers' local rivals Rockfield Rovers beat hosts Caldicot 3rds 2-1 in midweek though thanks to goals from Andy Fleming and Jordan Hole.

Ardal South East Chepstow Town licked Lliswerry's Lizards 3-0 at Larkfield Road to go eighth, Finn Hamblett, Josh Parsons and Josh Gibson the marksmen. But their 2nds missed out 3-1 away to Tredegar 2nds in FAW Reserves South East.

Already relegated Usk Town lost 6-0 loss at title-chasing Marshfield in Gwent Premier 2.

And while Tintern Abbey fought hard in the East Gwent Fishwick Cup final away to Sudbrook CC 2nds, they just lost out 1-0.

Redbrook Rovers lost 2-0 away to North Gloucestershire One leaders Lydbrook 2nds, but their reserves won 5-3 at home to Blakeney 2nds in NG3.

Chepstow 3rds host Severn Tunnel on Wednesday , while Tintern entertain Underwood 2nds.
