Bodmin Town 5, Liskeard Athletic 0

EVEN with several players missing, premier division champions Bodmin Town still proved too strong for Liskeard Athletic at Priory Park on Saturday.

Town stormed into a three-goal lead inside the opening 20 minutes and looked well on course for another big win following Tuesday night's 7-1 win at Launceston.

They led after just three minutes when some poor marking allowed Chris Luxton to volley in at the back post from Steve Colwell's cross.

Luxton then turned provider, crossing into the box for Adam Carter to fire home from close range.

Sam Matthews added a third when his shot from just inside the area took a deflection to beat Liskeard goalkeeper Gary Richards.

Martin Burgess' Liskeard simply had no answer to the hosts, who continued to dominate, creating chance after chance.

Luxton scored Bodmin's fourth goal from the penalty spot after he'd been brought down in the box by Richards.

Carter then completed the scoring in the 84th minute when he drilled the ball into the top corner to complete a comfortable victory for Town, who remain unbeaten.

Bodmin: K Miller, L Reed, L Rundle, H Morgan, S Simmonds, C Swiggs, S Colwell (O Brokenshire 58), G Hobbs (L Hodge 81), A Carter, C Luxton, S Matthews. Sub (not used): S Krac.

Liskeard: G Richards, D Barker, C Brimicombe, P Bromhead, J Simmons, J Scholes, C Clarke, S Murphy (M Mitchell 84), J Knight (A Neal 71), C Powell-Thomas, L Johnson (S Sims 81). Subs (not used): S Blatchford, K Harvey.
