Spalding United emphatically ended any fears of a relegation battle with a stunning win on Thursday night.

The Tulips moved up to 13th place in the Evo-Stik South by scoring eight times at Gresley who still face a fight for survival.

Skipper Gary King opened the scoring then Jonny Lockie and Danny Brooks made it 3-0 before the break.

Kern Miller added a fourth goal, Lockie and Brooks both netted again while Luke White’s late effort put Spalding 7-0 up.

Keenan King pulled one back and an own goal by Josh Egginton completed a miserable night for Gresley.

Spalding head to third-placed Bedworth United on Saturday.
