FOUR MORE AS CABLES ARE CUT DOWN
Blues scored four in a home league game for the third consecutive match as they swept aside Prescot Cables 4-0.
Cables came into the game in 3rd place in the table on the back of five straight league wins but never at any stage looked as though they might make it six.
Neil Baker made one change to the side that started at Market Drayton Town on Tuesday with Darren Chadwick replacing the released Andy McWilliams.
However the Blues boss was forced into another change on the quarter of an hour mark when Lewis Short limped off to be replaced by Joe Kearns.
Just three minutes later Leek were in front when Rob Stevenson cut in from the left and curled a lovely left-footed finish from the edge of the box that went in off the post.
On 21 minutes Scott Lycett just couldn't quite get enough on a dangerous corner to glance the ball into the net.
Four minutes later Aaron Bott had a chance but he poked his effort across the keeper and just wide of the far post.
Jordan Johnson was next to come close as he burst into the box only to see his shot blocked by Kyle Haslam in the Cables goal.
Blues keeper Danny Roberts had been a virtual spectator in the first half and it stayed that way after the break as Town dominated proceedings.
Johnson had a low shot saved on 51 minutes, but he made no mistake seven minutes later with a 20-yard free-kick.
Stevenson was brought down and Johnson curled a low shot around the wall and past the keepers dive into the bottom corner of the net.
Nine minutes later Blues were awarded a penalty when Bott's attempted pass hit the raised arm of Valter Fernandes and Darren Chadwick expertly slammed home the spot-kick right into the bottom corner of the goal with the keeper diving the right way.
Nine minutes from time, Bott did well to win the ball and play it to Stevenson, who rifled home a rising shot into the roof of the net from 12 yards.
This was an excellent all-round performance from Leek, scoring four and giving nothing away whatsoever at the back as Cables failed to muster a serious effort on target. A comprehensive victory which was fully-deserved.
