Rothwell Corinthians 0 St Ives Town 4
SAINTS' bandwagon rolled on as Jez Hall and Warren Everdell's men moved into third place in the table with a classy win.
The game was only five minutes old when a fine in swinging corner from Dan Moyes was met by the head of Will Fordham and Moyes was once again the provider on 12 minutes when his long throw from the right met the head of Jamie Blackwell, making his first start of the season.
After 24 minutes Dan Newman slid a long ball to Blackwell, his clever first time flick found the feet of Scott Fielding who slotted home to make it 3-0.
Rob Mackney showed his determination to keep another clean sheet with two fantastic saves to deny Rothwell a chance to get back into the game as the half drew to a close.
In the second half Saints man Fordham suffered a nasty dislocated shoulder before the home goalkeeper spilled a Carl Foreman free kick to Lloyd Howard who made it 4-0.
Hall said: "This was a fantastic team effort and it was great to see that all three of the substitutes made an impact.
"Will Fordham will be out for six weeks or more and we all wish him a speedy recovery."
Saints travel to Desborough on Saturday.
