Wealdstone ended a run of three games without a win by easing past Concord Rangers 3-0 in the National League South.

Concord managed to hold out for a goalless first half, but Jacob Mendy opened the scoring early in the second period before Ross Lafayette and Michael Phillips added the others later in the half.

The only downside to Wealdstone’s afternoon was a late sending off for Conor Stevens, who received a second yellow card in stoppage time.

Dean Brennan made a number of changes to the side that were beaten in the FA Trophy by Royston Town, with Harry Isted making his debut in goal, while William Edjenguele, Jack Jebb and Ashley Charles also came in.

Dennon Lewis registered the Stones’ first chance of the game after three minutes but was denied by Chris Haigh in the Rangers goal.

Jerome Okimo and Mendy also had good opportunities in the first half, but both were narrowly off target with their respective headers.

The deadlock was instead broken after half time, and it was Mendy who got the goal after latching onto an excellent through ball by Jebb and slotting past the goalkeeper.

Concord nearly drew level straight away as Kreshnic Krasniqi got his head to a near-post corner, but Isted got across to make a vital save and keep it out.

Instead, it was Wealdstone that got the second of the game as top-scorer Lafayette got on the end of an excellent ball from Billy Clifford and volleyed into the bottom corner.

Again Concord looked for a quick reply as David Olufemi tried his luck to no avail, but instead Wealdstone once again went up the other end and scored, rounding the game off as Phillips ran clear from the halfway line and fired home.

Stevens’ late dismissal put a dampener on the game, but with the result already sealed, Brennan’s side are six points clear at the top of the table ahead of this Saturday’s visit to Bath City.
