THE Motormen's relegation worries increased at The Butcher's Arms on Saturday as they moved within three points of the drop zone following a mauling in the Manchester sun.
Manager Owen Brown said: 'We're very much in the thick of it now. Droylsden did not have to come and win the game, we handed it to them. Apart from Phil Brazier, Lee Woodyatt and Steve McNulty, the players have let the supporters down, they've let me down and they've let themselves down. It won't happen again.'
Vauxhall had started brightly but once the Bloods went ahead on eight minutes through a deflected Robbie Talbot shot after Ian Fitzpatrick's corner was only half-cleared, the hosts took full control.
Droylsden thought they'd doubled their lead on 22 minutes through Gareth Morris, but his effort was ruled out for hand-ball after the celebrations had begun.
Their second goal did come on 39 minutes as the Motormen again failed to clear a Fitzpatrick corner from the right and although the unmarked Talbot was this time denied at the back post, powerhouse centre-forward David Cameron was on hand to bundle the rebound over the line.
Two goals in four minutes after the break finished Vauxhall off with marking again non-existent as Talbot met a Morris cross with a glancing header (54) which beat Tim Dittmer at his right-hand post.
Having scored two goals and made another, Talbot was then withdrawn but his replacement Ged Murphy completed the rout on 58 minutes. He netted with virtually his first touch by latching on to
Fitzpatrick's cross from the left and firing past Dittmer, with his shot going in off the same post.
Vauxhall: Dittmer, Woodyatt, McDermott, Glendenning (Mike Duffy 60), McNulty, Brazier, Nesbitt, Lawton, A Wright (Noone 60), Griffiths, Cumiskey (Parry 70). Attendance 321.
