BELPER Town made it four league wins in a row after a three-goal blast in 20 minutes gave them the platform for a 3-1 Evo-Stik First Division South victory over Loughborough Dynamo at Christchurch Meadow on Tuesday evening.

Mark Ward put the Nailers ahead on 16 minutes and he doubled both his own and Belper’s tally on 31 minutes before skipper Jon Froggatt added a third on 36 minutes.

The visitors reduced the deficit on 79 minutes through an Adam Wykes goal but Belper saw out time on a win which sees them now sat in 12th place, 11 points away from the play-offs with a game in hand.
