Wealdstone’s lead at the top of the National League South was extended to seven points after they comfortably dispatched Billericay Town 3-0 at home.

Moses Emmanuel gave the home side the lead at half-time before Ross Lafayette’s brace in the second half secured the points.

Dean Brennan named an unchanged line-up to the one that thrashed Bath City in their last league game, and they continued with the ruthlessness that saw them put seven past their promotion challengers here, going close early on through Billy Clifford and Dennon Lewis.

Billy Clifford missed a series of great opportunities for the Stones, although credit should go to Billericay goalkeeper Alan Julien for a number of outstanding saves.

However, there was nothing he could do to stop Wealdstone taking a deserved lead on 33 minutes when a pin-point cross from Lewis found the unmarked Emmanuel at the far post who headed home.

Wealdstone’s assault on the Billericay goal continued in the second half and they duly doubled their lead just after the hour mark. Substitute Lafayette made an instant impact, slotting past Julien for his 11th league goal of the season.

They pushed for a third goal straight away and, 14 minutes later, the finishing blow arrived when Lafayette arrived late in the box to provide a clinical finish.

After Havant & Waterlooville were held to a goalless draw, they drop to third, with Slough Town replacing them in second, but Wealdstone’s advantage is extended by a point due to the results.

Next up for the Stones is a home game against Harrow Borough in the Middlesex Charity Cup tomorrow night.
