LEDBURY Town put five past Worcester United to keep the pressure on league leaders Wellington at the top of the Herefordshire FA County League Premier Division.

Town have to keep winning to give themselves a chance of catching Wellington and gain promotion to Step 6 of non-league and they did just that on Saturday afternoon.

The game was switched to Malvern Town's HDAnywhere Community Stadium due to the weather and the artificial surface certainly suited Ian Merrick's men, who proved too strong for Worcester over the course of the 90 minutes.

Ryan Dobbins scored two for Ledbury, whilst Sam Webb, Josh Burns and Tyler Weir all got in on the act to complete a comfortable 5-2 win.

The three points sees Ledbury go level on points at the top of the league, but Wellington have two games in hand and remain in pole position to win the title and gain promotion.

With five games left, Ledbury must keep winning and hope for a Wellington slip-up in the coming weeks. The two do go head-to-head on March 16 (next Saturday) in what looks set to be the title decider, or at least a game Ledbury must win to wrestle back control in the title race.

Both are away from home this week. Ledbury make the trip to second-bottom in the table Holme Lacy, whilst Wellington are at fourth-placed Clee Hill United, which could prove to be a difficult contest for the visitors.

Elsewhere in the division this weekend, third-placed Kington Town will look to continue their impressive un of form when they host Evesham United Reserves. Ludlow Town host Malvern Town Development and Gloucester City Reserves go to Worcester United.
