Vanarama National League South: Weston-super-Mare 5 (Grubb 29, 86, Reid 54, 65, Lee 90+5) Wealdstone 1 (Oshodi 44)

Wealdstone slumped to their biggest National League South defeat of the season so far as they were thrashed 5-1 at Weston-super-Mare.

Stones fell behind in the 29th minute at the Woodspring Stadium when Seagulls striker Dayle Grubb found the net from 30 yards.

With a minute left in the opening half, Eddie Oshodi headed home a Ciaron Brown cross to draw Bobby Wilkinson’s men level.

In the 54th minute, Weston regained the lead when Jake Reid struck after being played in by skipper Grubb.

The Seagulls added a third 11 minutes later with Reid adding his second from close range after good work by Jake Lee.

Grubb was also at the double for the Woodspring Stadium club with four minutes remaining in the match, rounding Stones stopper Jonathan North before scoring.

In stoppage time, Wealdstone conceded a fifth when Gogglebox star Tristan Plummer played in Lee, who slotted past North.

The defeat saw Stones plummet into the relegation zone at the bottom of the National League South, with Wilkinson still searching for his first win as boss.
