ROCHDALIANS took a big step towards winning the Premier Division title in the Lancashire and Cheshire Amateur League after they won 4-2 at Abacus Media to leapfrog High Lane into top spot by a point.

If they win their two remaining games the title is theirs.

Salford Vics pulled off one of their biggest ever wins in the league as they followed up their Rhodes Cup semi-final victory with a 13-2 hammering of Mellor to move into fourth place in the table.

Ruben Rose was in seventh heaven for Vics netting seven times and also finding the target were star man Zac Faulkner (two), Pat Gregory, Ben Green, Joe Axon and Dale McAndrew.

The win takes Vics ahead of Waterloo who lost out 3-2 in a tight game at South Manchester.

Giving South the edge were strikes from Keifer Greig, Kai Blake and Marc Critchley.

At the other end of the table Old Ashtonians and Old Stretfordians shared four goals.

It’s still all to play for in the battle for the Division A title with leaders Elton Lib Hargreaves edging a tense 1-0 win at Unicorn Athletic to stay four points clear of Chadderton Cott.

Division B leaders AFC Stockport are one win away from securing the title as they followed a 5-3 midweek derby win against Hillgate with a hard-earned 2-1 triumph at Bury Ams seconds.

Hillgate bounced back to beat Chorltonians Athletic 3-1 with Tony Hardy supplying the Athletic consolation, while

Old Stretfordians seconds kept up their slim title hopes with an emphatic 5-0 win at Staly Lions with Lions also going down 7-3 in their midweek game at AFC Oldham thirds
