THORNBURY Town threw away a 2-1 half-time lead as they were thrashed 6-3 by Wantage Town in the Hellenic Premier to sink further into relegation trouble.

Thornbury now sit six points above the drop zone but Chipping Sodbury Town have two games in hand and could yet pull Thornbury back into the mix. 

It had been a positive start to Easter Monday's trip to Wantage, a team who have taken some scalps at home in the 2022/23 campaign. 

Harry Kenneth-Brock and Stanley Wyatt scored either side of Luke Campbell's equaliser to give the visitors a 2-1 lead at half-time. 

But three goals in five second-half minutes after the break saw The Freds turn things around as Rhys Jay Wells, Joshua Davis and Campbell made it 4-2.

Thornbury had been stunned but pulled one back in the 81st minute through Kenneth-Brock to give them hope of salvaging a point. 

But substitute Thomas Wynn-Davis put the result beyond doubt before Davis converted a penalty to add icing on the cake and a 6-3 socreline.

Thornbury have just one game left this season and must win it to ensure they will survive the drop.
