Blues tuck into a six-goal feast as they gobble up Gingerbreads

LEEK Town came up with the perfect riposte for disgruntled fans following an uncharacteristic run of three games without a win.

Blues followers among the 331 spectators were treated to a six-goal feast as The Baker Boys, driven on by man-of-the-match Rob Stevenson, turned on the style.

Stevenson deserved the accolade for providing the ammunition that created five of the six goals which shot down the Gingerbreads from Shropshire.

But it needed a wake-up call to send Blues on their way as keeper Roberts pulled off a fine save to deny Market Drayton the lead with barely a minute gone on the watch.

Tim Grice steadied Blues nerves by putting his side ahead from close range from a Stevenson cross in the sixth minute.

However, it wasn't until a minute before the break that the hosts doubled their lead when Matt Bell scored with a downward header from another Stevenson assist.

Stevenson continued to trouble the Market Drayton defence on the resumption and in the 54th minute he found Jack Wakefield at the far post to put Blues 3-0 up.

Then came the goal that Stevenson didn't have a say in when the lively Bell and Wakefield combined to feed Grice at the far post for his second goal.

After 64 minutes Grice made way for James Kirby and the substitute responded by netting Blues fifth and sixth goals within the space of six minutes.

On each occasion it was Stevenson who turned provider as he continued to turn the Market Drayton defence inside out with his wizardry.
