That said, the next four teams in the standings are only two points off the leaders while, at the other end of the ladder, the bottom three are without a win or even a point to their credit.

Goals from Gibril Bojang, Luke Playford, James Wilson and sub’ Saif Akbar secured Town’s victory over Bridge.

Beeston St Anthony First sit second following a 6-0 success at third-bottom Gomersal & Cleckheaton. Scorers were Joshua Browne (2), Jake Meehan (2), Ben Thornton and Lee Turner.
