WOMBWELL Town will hope to continue their superb start to the season when they play two other top five teams this week.

They are five points clear at the top of NCEL Division One with 37 points from 14 games, unbeaten in 11 with ten wins.

Town have won all of their home league games since being promoted from the County Senior League.

They now visit third-placed Nostell on Friday before hosting fifth-placed Retford United on Tuesday.

Manager Karl Rose said: “It’s a big month. Nostell were just beaten 7-0 which is a freak result.

“We are wary of the wounded beast.

“We will go there full of confidence and we’re looking forward to it.

“Retford are unbeaten. They were promoted like us for this season.

“Everybody knew they would be dangerous. We are expecting another big crowd at home. These games are what we’ve come into the league for.”

On the start to the season in general, Rose said: “We’re delighted.

“We’re almost a third of the way through the season.

“If someone offered me this record I would have snatched their hand off.

“We’re winning games, scoring a hell of a lot of goals.

“We have to take each game as it comes but our form should give us confidence.

“We’re riding the crest of a wave.

“We can still get even better but the lads have been absolutely fantastic.”

Town beat Louth Town 3-1 at home on Saturday. After a goalless first hour, Harley Wilson, Bradley Kerr and Brodie Cooper put the hosts 3-0 up before a late consolation.

Rose said: “It was a very good win.

“We were poor in the first half.

“But we went through the gears in the second half.

“We gave away a daft goal late on which took the shine off it a little bit.

“But we have won seven out of seven at home which is excellent.”

Worsbrough Bridge’s winless run stretched to 11 games after they lost 2-1 at home to Wakefield on Saturday.

The visitors took the lead then Andrew Horbury levelled before Wakefield won it in the 90th minute. Bridge have 15 points from as many games and are 17th, four places clear of the relegation zone.

Athersley Rec conceded two late goals in a 3-3 home draw with Dronfield Town.

The visitors took the lead but Kyle Batchelor netted a hat-trick to put Rec 3-1 up. But Dronfield netted in the 90th and 91st minute. Rec are fourth-bottom with nine points from 14 games.

They have drawn the last two after losing seven in a row in the league.
