Dennis Wate provided an excellent assist soon after for Kwabena “Gyimah” Asante to score his first of the afternoon and double the lead at half-time.

Asante got his just reward for his hard work with a well taken finish after a Tewkesbury flick on from a long throw, giving the home side an unassailable 3-0 lead.
