Zak Munton's second-half hat-trick guided Bourne Town to their first home win of the season.

The Wakes led at half-time through Reece Driscoll but fell behind at the start of the second period.

Munton missed a couple of golden chances before finding the target three times against Burton Park Wanderers.

Joint boss Rob Middleton said: "This is the first time we've had back-to-back wins so we're chuffed to bits.

"I was really pleased with our discipline and shape during the first half.

"Burton Park Wanderers had a lot of non-threatening possession when we got two banks of four behind the ball.

"At half-time, I warned the players that they would come at us because they had nothing to lose at 1-0.

"That's exactly what happened next and for 20 minutes we were all over the place. At 2-1, I wondered what had gone wrong.

"Then we started to play again and look dangerous. We made a couple of changes and found ourselves 4-2 up.

"It was disappointing to concede from a free-kick which nobody could understand why it had been given anyway.

"At times, we can make life difficult for ourselves but we have to praise the lads.

"We felt a lot of decision went against us and there was no protection for our players.

"Driscoll was taken out twice in a matter of 30 seconds and then the officials missed an off-the-ball incident when he got kicked.

"I know the officials have a tough job and we all make mistakes but we could have ended up with broken legs on Saturday.

"It was great to win at home as we appreciate the support to spur us on.

"The level of performance wasn't the same as we saw at Irchester United last week but we battled through adversity.

"It will be another tough game at home to Huntingdon Town next Saturday because they have a new manager. There are still areas where we need to strengthen."
