COPLAND were taken apart by Indian Gymkhana as they slipped to their third defeat in five games, despite the boost of an early goal on Saturday.
Playing only their third home match of the season, Copland's bright start proved a false dawn. Robert Osborne was the man on target on the 10th minute with a 35-yard shot to give them the lead. Darren Turner almost hit a second, shooting wide as Copland threatened to spring an upset.
But the visitors grabbed an equaliser against the run of play when a cross from the left was headed in, and things quickly got worse for Copland when they failed to clear a corner, allowing Gymkhana to take the lead.
With his side under increasing pressure, Turner tried to make a difference with two shots which narrowly missed the target, but the remainder of the first half saw Copland's opponents add another brace of goals.
Tessfa Lowe picked the ball up and swivelled to plant a shot into the bottom corner, before Copland conceded a fourth goal from the penalty spot.
The home side's misery was completed early in the second half, as yet another header put the game well beyond their grasp.
Copland: Plummer, Williams, Keller, Osborne, Anderson, Bucknor, Yaslem, Anderson, Silcott, Turner, Johnson, Grant.
