Panthers went into the game looking to consolidate their current 3rd place, still with an outside chance of winning the league with 5 wins from their final 5 games of the season.
After a bright start, Panthers creted a number of good chances but failed to test the Park Hill keeper. It was left to centre half, Andy Vaughan, to open the scoring with a side foot volley from a Joshua Eyre corner which flew past the keeper. Several more chances came and went until Sam Bateman was on hand to stab home from close range just before the break giving Panthers a 2-0 half time lead.
In the 2nd half, Panthers totally dominated the game with keeper James Walters touching the ball just once in the half. However, despite constant pressure the Park Hill goal somehow remained intact until Dominic Cella hit a great volley into the top corner to make it 3-0. George Coldicott made it 4 soon after with a crisp shot from the edge of the box, then Andy Reynolds got the 5th with a tap in after a great mazy run from Owen Davies which rebounded off the post.
Overall a good, solid away perfomance with some great football played in the 2nd half. Well done lads.
