Honiton Town 5, Pinhoe 0

Honiton Town were comfortable winners in a game that saw them rarely rise above mediocrity in terms of their overall performance.

That does not concern boss Kev Blackwell who said: “Results are everything at this stage and I have to be very content when my side bag a nap hand win and keep a clean sheet, without actually playing anywhere near their best! I am relieved we were not made to pay for the hatful of chances we spurned in the first half!”

The Town boss missed his side’s first two goals, scored inside as many minutes, as he was still his way from the dressing rooms to the pitch!

Brad Groves opened the scoring on his way to another Man of the Match award and Tim Genders doubled the lead. Lewis Couch scored the third from the penalty spot just before half-time.

The second half was played at a slower pace, but both Groves and genders netted again to give the score line a convincing look.

Blackwell says: “That was the first game of the second half of our league season. In real terms it means we now have to squeeze the remaining 13 league games into a period of just six weeks. I hope we can see the season through strongly to gain promotion. Last season we were undone with the vast amount of games within a short space of time. However, our squad is stronger this season, and I have learned from last season’s disappointment.”

On Saturday Town make the long trip to South Zeal.
