Wealdstone ended a run of four games without a win after comfortably beating East Thurrock United 3-0 at Grosvenor Vale last night.

First-half goals from Bradley Bubb, Ricky Wellard and Jeffrey Monakana put the Stones in control of they moved up into the top half of National League South to 11th.

Stones boss Bobby Wilkinson made three changes to the side that drew 4-4 with Chippenham Town on Saturday with Ryan Sellers, Ian Gayle and Danny Green returning in place of Sam Cox, who was dropped to the bench, the unwell David Pratt and Glenn Wilson, who will now miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury.

Captain Jerome Okimo slotted into midfield to deal with the aerial threat posed by the league's top scorer Sam Higgins but the Stones skipper posed the first threat of the game up the other end of the pitch, hitting a spectacular effort just wide from the edge of the box as he went close to his first goal of the season.

But it didn’t take the home side long to make the breakthrough. Quick-thinking from Matty Whichelow caught East Thurrock napping and he played it to Wellard who delivered an excellent cross that allowed Bubb to nod in an easy finish.

The pair then combined again just five minutes later. Wellard played a one-two with Bubb on the edge of the area before smashing an excellently-placed low effort past Lukas Lidakevicius to double Wealdstone's lead.

East Thurrock offered their only real chance of the game just a minute after when Montel Agyemang squared to Harry Phipps in the box, he turned Eddie Oshodi impressively but then hit a tame effort straight at Jonathan North for his only save of the game of note.

Monakana offered a constant threat down the hosts’ right flank and grabbed a deserved goal just before half time. Whichelow hit an excellent through ball to his teammate, he beat the offside trap and rounded Lidakevicius before slotting in from a tight angle.

The second half was a far more subdued affair but Wealdstone went close through Green when he latched onto Gayle's long ball and knocked it past keeper Lidakevicius, but put the effort wide under pressure.

East Thurrock had two half-chances through Higgins but he couldn’t add to his 26-goal tally as the Stones held on for a clean sheet and three points.
