BRANDON Town got back to winning ways with a comprehensive win at Dersingham on Saturday.
Town started well and soon found their passing game. They went ahead on 11 minutes when Waites cross was buried by Brown. Chances to increase the lead came at regular intervals as the home defence lacked organisation.
Waites had a golden opportunity just before the break but his shot was well saved. Meanwhile Corston in the Town goal was kept quiet as the defence looked assured, even with skipper Winstone barely able to run.
The second half began much as the first had ended with Town having the lion's share of the play. The key point of the match was a Dersingham free-kick that Corston parried and in the ensuing scramble the hosts had an appeal for a penalty turned down.

Moments later a reckless challenge gave Town a free-kick and Peckham flicked on to Waites who found the top corner.
The home side were reduced to 10 men due to a lack of discipline and Peckham was on hand to give Town a third after Waites had sprung the offside trap.
