VAUXHALL MOTORS improved their Nationwide Conference North survival prospects no end with this comfortable victory at struggling Ashton United, thanks to a goal in each half.
The Motormen took the lead after only three minutes. Olsen won a corner for the visitors on the left which Lawton swung in. McNulty powered in a goal-bound header, which was partially cleared off the line by Dawson, only for the Vauxhall player to follow up and fire his team in front from eight yards out.
Motors' Wright also went close, after good work by the impressive Nesbitt, but Ashton enjoyed a good five-minute spell midway through the first half, when both Clee and Lancaster saw decent shots well saved by Motors keeper Dittmer, before Cooney drove over the bar.
The Motormen controlled the play after the break and twice Olsen went close to increasing their lead, before he struck the crucial second on the hour mark, when he produced an unstoppable header from McDermott's corner on the right.
The visitors were well worth their win, bringing their haul to seven points in the last three away fixtures.
Vauxhall are at home to Barrow tomorrow night at Rivacre Park (7.45pm).
