Wormley took the lead after two minutes when goalkeeper Tray failed to deal with a corner. Lions responded well and were level soon after when Josh Kennet scored a great solo goal to continue his rich vein of form and net his tenth goal of the season.

Lions then went 2-1 up after Austin Lipman scored from 15 yards, but Wormley drew level after a swift counter-attack and poor defending allowed the Wormley forward to slot home and make it even at the break.

Wormley scored early on in the second period after more poor defending, with their fourth goal arriving in the dying moments when Lions were caught out at the back when pressing for an equaliser.

Manager Andy Landesberg said: “We deserved nothing . We had 16 attempts and 8 of those were golden. If you can’t take opportunities that are handed on a plate then what chance do you have?”
