LEAMINGTON boosted their play-off chances with a convincing 3-0 win away at fellow top-five hopefuls Redditch United.

Goals from Will Shorrock, Rob Evans and Dan Meredith saw the Brakes stretch their unbeaten run to four matches at Valley Stadium.

And the result means Leamington sit fourth in the Southern League Premier Central table, one point inside the play-off places.

The Brakes broke the deadlock on 38 minutes when Shorrock showed great composure to lift a shot over Adam Harrison after Theo Streete nodded on Evans’ long free-kick into the box.

And the visitors doubled their lead on the hour mark as Evans curled a stunning free-kick into the top left corner of the goal from 25-yards out.

Paul Holleran’s side completed the scoring in injury time as Dan Meredith lashed a shot past Harrison from 25-yards out from Josh Quaynor’s driven pass.

Leamington are next in action away at Racing Club Warwick on Tuesday, March 26 in the semi-finals of the Birmingham Senior Cup with kick-off at 7.45pm at Townsend Meadow.
