Rabbits started in positive fashion keeping excellent possession and creating chances, and within 10 minutes found themselves one up when Liam Hollingworth slipped the ball through to James Slack to finish.

Slack added a second five minutes later with a cool finish into the bottom corner.

Warboys stepped up their game, and tried to create chances of their own to get back into the game but they could not get past Rabbits’ back four who held firm and cut out dangerous passes.

Liam Hollingworth and Charles Baird worked well in the central midfield putting in dangerous balls but a few minutes before the half, Warboys pulled a goal back.

After the break clever combination play and link up with the Danny Foster and Slack caused endless problems for the Warboys defence. From a corner, Lewis Fintches was on standby at the edge of the box and coolly slotted the ball home first time.

James Slack then completed his hat trick with a right foot shot which curled wonderfully into the top far hand corner.

Tane Scott was introduced into the game with immediate impact slotting the ball home following some great play out from Darren Short in defence.

Rabbits continued to build momentum and a clever switch of play from Mike Reeson found Gary Rix who riffled a shot in of the near post.

Rabbits added their seventh shortly after with Baird playing a ball through for Tane Scott to chase use his quick feet to round the keeper to slot home.

Possession was key for the Rabbits and for large parts of the second half they kept the ball well in all areas of the fields restricting the home side to a couple of half chances.

Two minutes from time Warboys added a consolation goal but it was the Rabbits who came out on top with a fine team performance.
