The Lockmen put in a good performance to see off a poor Wellington Amateurs side who looked every inch relegation candidates on this showing.
Ironically the visitors edged the first twenty minutes and created the only opening when Lockmen keeper Harry Radford was dispossessed and when the ball was crossed in to a totally unmarked Jamie Bloor he fired well wide of a gaping net. Willenhall, however, netted with their fist effort on 21 minutes when Jamal Pinnock won a crunching tackle before player-boss Mark Habbershaw did likewise with the last defender and he bounced up off the ground to fire beyond a despairing Lucas Franks for his 18th goal of the season. The Lockmen then found their stride and Dom Smith saw a header hacked off the line, Habbershaw and Chadd Birch just fired wide before Dom Smith stretched the lead on 35 minutes when he headed home another corner. Radford made one excellent tip over to deny the visitors a goal just before the break.
On 53 minutes it was 3-0. Clayton Peddie saw his shot blocked on the line before crossing to the far post where Smith launched a rocket into the roof of the net from five yards. A minute later Micel Barrett saw his header strike the bar and Habbershaw was inches wide from a second attempt. Habbershaw and Smith then had efforts cleared from the line in the next Willenhall attack. It was 4-0 on 55 minutes when Clayton Peddie fired home from two yards after a long range effort was fumbled to his feet by an unfortunate keeper. Habbershaw was then off target twice before Josh Annakin saw an effort blocked. Welly sub Carl Crooks fired at Radford on 70 minutes. who then had to field a couple of weak long range shots. Substitute Ian Dell fired just over before fellow sub Matt Dorgan rounded off the scoring by again robbing the last defender and coolly curling an effort into the top corner with nine minutes left. Annakin and Habbershaw (twice) forced more saves from an overworked keeper near the end.
