UNITED maintained their 100% away league record with a superb all-round display on Saturday.
They might have even have finished the game feeling a little sorry for Oldham whose own performance was not as bad as the scoreline suggests. They were simply outclassed at times.
Blues have now won all six NWCFL away fixtures, scoring 20 and conceding just five.
They bombarded the Town goal from the off and scored in the 11th minute.
The provider was Dave Hanlon with a cross from the right that was blasted goalwards by Rob Hopley. Goalkeeper Matt Blair could only parry the ball as far as Lee Duckworth who blasted it high into the net from 12 yards.
Hopley was giving the opponents defence a run-around and he opened his account on 32 minutes when he robbed home defender Nick Murphy on the edge of the area and calmly guided his shot into the bottom corner.
Minutes later he beat Blair to the ball but with an empty net at his mercy he somehow steered his shot wide.
He immediately threatened the goal again and looked to have earned an obvious penalty when his heels were clipped as he broke through but the referee waved play on.
Darren Scanlon went desperately close to getting Oldham back in the game before the break.
But United were shocked straight after the break when Danny Jarrett made a hash of his clearance and French youngster Elstrom Die took advantage to guide the ball past Danny Morton.
However, Winsford hit back three minutes later when a superb through ball from Neil Marsh found Hopley in the clear and after taking it around Blair he coolly side-footed home.
On 56 minutes an excellent piece of opportunism by Hanlon saw the match put beyond Oldham. Awarded a free kick 30 yards out on the right he saw that Oldham were trying to organise their defence so he simply lifted it over them and into the far corner of the net past the astonished Blair.
Hanlon completed the scoring on 75 minutes when his inswinging free kick was missed by everyone and rolled into the corner of the net.
UNITED: Morton; Aston, Murray, Marsh, Porter; Topping, Duckworth, Jarrett, Hanlon; Melia, Hopley (Weir 78).
Star Man: Rob Hopley, hit peak form.
