The Pikes bounced back from their disastrous midweek FA Cup replay with an emphatic win in Nottinghamshire.
After the late collapse against Jarrow Roofing on Tuesday evening, this time it was Pickering who hit three late goals at Eagle Valley.
Liam Shepherd gave the Pikes an early lead in the tenth minute but it wasn't until the last eleven that the three points were secured. Strikers Steve Baxter and Liam Salt made the game safe and defender Mike McNaughton added a fourth in the 88th minute.
The win, which sees Pickering climb to 15th in the NCEL Premier, is all the more impressive as Arnold opened their league campaign with two wins in their first two fixtures.
