Budleigh Salterton powered to a splendid six goal success at home to Galmpton on the final Saturday of February to keep their bid for a top two finish very much alive.

The Robins were good value for the clean sheet victory, something that has been rare this term with the team success on the road in league matches.

The victory was only their second clan sheet home win of the season with the other occasion being a 4-0 thumping of Okehampton Argyle.

Player-boss Danny Williams and Mark Lever both bagged braces and the other goals were scored by Mike Hancock and George Pannell.
