West Malmesbury Vics 0 Rocks 7
With the return of Justin Bishop after missing the last five games, Rocks manager Gary Powell had an almost full squad to choose from for Tuesday night's away game.
After only a dozen minutes, Tytherington took the lead when, from a Sam Taylor free kick, captain Andy Criddle headed the ball firmly against a post and into the net.
Rocks continued throughout the first half to create chances but without finding the net going in at half time leading by the only goal.
The second half continued with Rocks doing all the attacking. In the 51st minute, a good run from midfield by Sam Taylor saw his shot parried out to Justin Bishop who made no mistake for a 2-0 lead.
Goals then came at regular intervals. In the 58th minute, a corner was met by Luke Sperring who scored his first goal at first team level.
Within minutes, goal number four came when Bishop passed to Joe White who placed his shot wide of keeper Joe Snell. Alex Chapman, who had an excellent second half, scored the fifth after running from the half-line.
On 78 minutes, keeper Snell gave the ball away to Bishop who passed to White who scored his 20th goal of the season. This was followed on 89 minutes when Chapman provided Bishop with a through pass to complete the 7-0 rout .
On Saturday, Rocks play hosts to Wootton Bassett, 3pm.
