Oadby clean up against a poor Burton showing...

Oadby's clinical finishing earned them another big win.

The Division One tabletoppers wasted little time in grabbing the initiative with Jon Stevenson's clever chip over 'keeper Craig Patterson giving them the lead three minutes in.

Four minutes later Stevenson and Courtney Meade set up Levi Porter for a simple finish at the far post.

Dan Spaughton curled a shot just wide when Burton replied but on 25 minutes Porter's sublime chip found Stevenson who chipped the ball over Patterson to slot home as a defender challenged.

Three minutes later it was four as Jake Duffy and Meade set up overlapping left back Pradeep Bahrey to make it four.

On 32 minutes a series of incisive passes opened up the Burton defence for Meade to apply the finish.

Spaughton tested home keeper Luke Pickering before Nathan Wills fired over for Burton.

Patterson made a fine save from Meade on the stroke of half time.

Burton competed better on resumption but Patterson saved well from Joe French and Rob Morgan.

With eighteen minutes left Burton were reduced to ten men by Wayne Richardson's dismissal.

The visitors almost grabbed a consolation when Dan Turiccki fired against the post with Spaughton's follow up saved by Pickering.

On 78 minutes Stevenson played Bahrey into space to drill a low shot beyond Patterson.

With a minute remaining Mead's fierce low shot from outside the box made it seven.

Stevenson had the last word in the final minute, intercepting Jamie Black's underhit back pass to round Patterson and tap into an empty net.
