Onions peg back leaders with 4-0 thrashing
Flanagan’s Onions cut the lead at the top of the First Division table to just two points after a convincing 4-0 win over leaders Wolves at BAA Field at the weekend.
Onions skipper Keston Lewis bagged a brace, while Darren Doolin and Kevin Ronaldson added strikes to brush aside previously unbeaten Wolves.
With just three games of the season remaining, Onions coach Michael Ward believes his side can still overhaul Wolves, although he admits their main priority is securing promotion.
“The result has certainly given us a boost for the remaining three games of the season,” said Ward.
“I thought on the night we fully deserved the victory and it is difficult to pick out a single player.
“Our captain, Keston Lewis, and goalkeeper, Steve Gould, were magnificent, all the players were outstanding, and the supporters were in full voice as well so credit to them.
“It was nice to be able to send them home or to the pub with something to celebrate and smile about.”
Onions take on third-placed BAA Wanderers this weekend and now go into the match with a six-point gap.
‘It was a very important result for us, it maintained the gap between ourselves and the teams below us and with three games to go it is important to carry that momentum.
“Our main objective is to secure promotion to the Premier league, as it has been all season.
“Now we must concentrate on our next game against BAA who are in fine form at the moment.”
