FOOTBALL - Brakes in three-goal home defeat to title-chasing King's Lynn

LEAMINGTON are now just three points above the relegation zone after Paul Holleran’s side were beaten 3-0 at home by title-chasing King’s Lynn Town.

The Brakes fell behind to Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain’s early goal before Aaron Cosgrave and Spencer Keller struck in the second half at the Your Co-Op Community Stadium.

And the result means Leamington are down in 18th place in the National League North table, three points above the drop zone.

King’s Lynn opened the scoring on six minutes as Oxlade-Chamberlain, brother of Liverpool star Alex, headed down into ground which saw the ball loop in past Callum Hawkins via the left-hand post with Cosgrave in close attention.

And the visitors doubled their lead on 69 minutes as Cosgrave lashed a stunning volley from the right side of the penalty area over Hawkins when he latched onto Michael Clunan’s long ball.

The game was wrapped up on 85 minutes as Keller cut inside of two Leamington defenders and curled a shot into the bottom right corner.

Leamington are next in action at home to Blyth Spartans on Saturday, February 4 with kick-off at 3pm at the Your Co-Op Community Stadium.
