STEVE Davison and Jas Singh both bagged a brace as Khalsa eased past Northampton Saints in their penultimate game in the Midland Premier Division 2015/16 season.

Khalsa started the stronger of the two sides on Saturday with David Harris coming close early on but he was unable to steer the ball towards the goal.

However the visitors did break the deadlock soon after when Singh’s perfectly weighted pass found Gurminder Ghattaura and he in turn put Jo Colantonio clean through with the Khalsa player going on to score an easu tap in.

Stuart Gooderham was causing all sorts of problems down the baseline with his slick skills and he shot agonisingly wide, while Singh was also close to making another assist with a clever reverse ball towards Harris but a last ditch save from the keeper was enough to steer the ball away from danger.

Davison also had a shot at goal that missed the target but Khalsa’s continuous pressure was rewarded when Davison’s next effort was powered into the roof of the net.

The hosts did come close themselves late in the half however a save from keeper Elliot Rider tipped the ball onto the post.

After the break, Khalsa remained unchanged and it was not long before they stretched their lead further when Singh turned scorer with a superb effort to restore Khalsa’s three-goal cushion.

Singh doubled his tally after linking well with Jack Wells and Anit Chudasama, but Khalsa’s continuous pressing game left them exposed at the back which allowed Northampton to score a late consolation goal.

Khalsa finish the 2-15/16 campaign off with a home clash against Stone this Saturday.
