Cinderford Town travelled back to the west of England with all three points following a 3-0 away win at Winchester City in the Southern League Division One South.

The visitors started the game strongly and Craig Norman fired past Ryan Pryce to put Town ahead. They doubled their advantage thanks to James Harding on 26 minutes and the game was effectively over when Josh Hunt scored a long range effort when Ryan Pryce was caught off his line.

City fought hard for a route back into the game but the visitors defended resolutely.

Oli Bailey and Olly Balmer linked up well and both players came close to pulling a goal back for the hosts. Rob Flooks had a great opportunity for City early in the second-half but his header, from a Jamie Barron corner, went over the crossbar.

Oli Bailey fired over for City later in the second-half and IK Hill caused the visitors problem after he came off the bench, but unfortunately to no avail.
