Five second half goals for play-off chasing hosts Lancaster City ensured a miserable afternoon for Leigh Genesis as they suffered a six goal hammering at the Giant Axe to leave them rooted to the table of the table.

Genesis might have ended up with a hammering, but there was little sign of that for much of an encouraging first half for the visitors until they fell behind on forty three minutes when Paul Jarvis fired past Adam Judge from twenty yards out.

The lead was doubled on fifty seven minutes before signs of a Leigh collapse began to appear three minutes later when Alex Johnson grabbed a third for the home side.

Farrell grabbed his second on eighty one minutes before ex-Genesis defender Andrew Teague made it five with a minute of normal time remaining, with the rout completed in injury time thanks to Dave Swarbrick.

Leigh now have to pick themselves up for two consecutive home games, their first for over a month, when Cammell Laird are the visitors to Crilly Park on Tuesday evening for a 7.45pm kick off before welcoming Clitheroe the following Saturday (20th November, 3pm). Birkenhead-based Lairds are just two points ahead of Genesis after they suffered a thumping of their own in an 8-0 loss to Skelmersdale United, while Clitheroe are in sixth position but suffered a 3-0 home defeat to Curzon Ashton.

Leigh Genesis; Adam Judge, Danny Lyons, Andy Heald (Adam Strode 56), Tony Rendell, Adam Farley, Paul Williams, Joe Evans, Rowan Garnett (Gary Scott 70), Paul Hopkins, Nick Eastham, Brodie Kearns (Mick Vernon 70). Subs (not used); Jack Burke, Steve Ferrigan

Interesting comments from a Lancaster fan on NonLeagueZone, always good to read that a good account was given on and off the field. Shame it still doesn't get us any points.

Wasn't aware that we had only had ten men when the second went in as Healdy's nose was plastered across his face after an elbow (the chairman's words, not mine!). Why will nothing go our way?!

Spoke to Healdy earlier and he's back at the hospital today - definitely out for Tuesday but hopeful he'll be back for Saturday.

Would imagine it will mean Willo slotting to left back and having Kearns or Burke on the left.
