A FAILURE to take full advantage of their early dominance cost Vauxhall Motors dear on Monday as their seven-match unbeaten run in Blue Square Bet North was ended by a 4-1 loss at Worcester City.
Back in action for the first time in three weeks, Carl Macauley’s side made a flying start.
Top-scorer Obi Anoruo could and should have fired them in front in the second minute, but captain Josh Wilson showed him how to do it three minutes later with a header from Neil Prince’s corner.
The visitors were looking dangerous every time they marauded forward and only a top-drawer save denied Prince.
But in-form Worcester weathered the storm and knocked the stuffing out of Vauxhall when they equalised on the stroke of half-time.
The hosts – who knocked Northwich Victoria out of the FA Trophy two days earlier – came out for the second half with all guns blazing and their sharper match fitness eventually told as they scored three times in the final 13 minutes.
Motors head to Solihull Moors on Saturday (3pm).
