Jagger had called for his side to pick up where they left off last time out when they beat the current leaders Chalk Lane.
A delighted Jagger speaking after the match said;
“We played some good stuff in spells today, and at other times we got a little sloppy.”
“However overall I’m really pleased with the result. I said to both Leon Dawson and Joe Norton I wanted goals from them today, so it was pleasing that they both got on the score sheet.”
“We have five games left,including Walkington & Scullies, so it’s going to be an interesting battle right to the end of the season. With the semi final coming up soon against Hull City too there’s still plenty to play for.”
Town started brightly, playing out from the back and keeping good possession in midfield. Alex Stark was causing problems in behind and his pace was a constant threat.
Town deservedly took the league on 10 minutes, when a good break down the left created space for Leon Dawson , and from just inside the 18 yard box he fired in hard and low across the keeper to make it 1 nil to Town.
East Riding re grouped and put Town under pressure on the ball. Town didn’t react well, giving the ball away easily and conceding a number of corners. Kegan Rose cleared off the line from a dangerous East Riding Header, and keeper Spencer was called into action to make a couple of fine saves.
The ball was played down the left channel to Organ, who held the ball up really well, and linked up with Leon Dawson in midfield. Dawson played the ball out wide right to Norton, who take a couple of touches and fired the ball into the top corner from 30 yards out.
Towns defence held strong in the second half, the back three of Bedford, McHale and Fitzgerald were solid and dealt with balls fired into the box very well.
On 70 minutes Leon Dawson made it 3-0 to Town, after another good break down the right hand side, Dawson cut inside and finished powerfully into the bottom corner from 20 yards out, giving the keeper no chance.
Town made it 4-0 on 80 minutes, when Michael O`Connell picked up the ball on the left hand side after a defensive mix up, and from 25 yards out fired into the bottom corner of the goal.
East Riding grabbed a consolation goal on 84 minutes, when Dan McHale inadvertently turned the ball into his own net.
