Wealdstone eased their Vanarama National League relegation fears with a 3-1 home win over fellow strugglers King’s Lynn.

Danny Green opened the scoring for Wealdstone after nine minutes as he slotted under Archie Mair following a quick free-kick from Alex Dyer, while Alex Kiwomya almost responded for the visitors when he fired wide.

Wealdstone doubled their lead nine minutes before the break as Ross Lafayette found the bottom corner. Mair then made a couple of good saves to deny the home side a third.

Harry Isted kept out Kairo Mitchell’s effort early in the second half before Jacob Mendy’s fierce low shot made it 3-0 with 66 minutes gone.

Mitchell grabbed a consolation goal for the visitors from a Kiwomya cross with 10 minutes to go.

It was a win that provided the perfect tonic to the weekend’s performance when Jake Hyde and Jack Earing scored second-half goals as Halifax hit back to beat Stones 2-1.

Dennon Lewis fired Wealdstone into a half-time lead, but Halifax forward Hyde equalised early in the second period and midfielder Earing grabbed the visitors’ winner 10 minutes from time.

Midfielder Lewis lashed home an excellent finish against the run of play to give the home side the lead on the half-hour.

Halifax levelled in the 57th minute when Hyde headed home Jeff King’s cross and Earing struck a superb winner from 20 yards before Wealdstone’s Dan Bowry was sent off for a late challenge on Earing in stoppage time.

The defeat left Wealdstone just three points clear of the bottom three after a fifth loss in their previous eight league matches.

Tuesday evening’s win over King’s Lynn widened that gap to six points, as they look to stay in the division.
