WOODHOUSE’S dream start to the season goes on.

It is now six from six as they have pulled out a clear five-point lead at the top of Division Two.

“All the lads are keen. They are training every week and it’s showing,” said delighted new manager Simon Randles.

“At the beginning of the season I told them what I expected of them and they are doing it,” he said.

In six games they have already scored 27 goals, with striker Callum Hallahan already taking his total to 11.

They have had four clean sheets and only conceded three goals.

And on Sunday they were on the scoresheet within seconds.

From the whistle Josh Thompson took the ball down the left and his dangerous cross ended with a Roca defender putting the ball in his own net.

In the eighth minute Hallahan found himself through. His shot was parried by the keeper and the striker was brought down in the area as he was about to fire home the rebound.

He then stepped up to take the penalty and increase the home lead.

After 23 minutes he was on hand as provider, crossing from the right for Mark Walters to run on and fire home.

Woodhouse went 4 - 0 up in the 34th minute when Darren Preece headed in a Mathew Town long throw.

The home side took their foot off the gas in the second half and could only manage one further goal.

It came from sub Oliver Wood, who headed in a cross on 73 minutes.

Woodhouse will be hoping to extend their lead at the top on Sunday when they travel to bottom club The Reed, who have already let in 28 goals in only four games.
