North Leigh got their Calor League Division 1 South & West play-off bid back on track with a classy victory at Eynsham Park on Saturday.
A super second-half display secured the success to end their four-match winless run.

The Millers went ahead early in the second half.
Elliott Osborne-Ricketts picked out McDonagh, who turned and hit a low shot past Cable into the far corner.
It wasn’t long before North Leigh doubled their lead.
Taking a pass in the opposition half, Osborne-Ricketts charged for goal and hit a terrific 20-yard left-foot shot into the far corner.
The Millers sealed victory with the goal of the game.
Sanders charged forward before unleashing a 25-yard shot that dipped and swerved past a stunned Cable.
North Leigh then eased home with little difficulty.
