Deeping Rangers have endured a tough run of late, without a win in their last three UCL Premier Division matches and exiting the KO Cup but on Saturday they emphatically got back to winning ways with a 5-1 victory away to Huntingdon Town.

A first-half goal blitz sent Huntingdon Town crashing to a third successive defeat.

Mohammed Hamid set the ball rolling with the first two goals after 16 and 18 minutes.

David Burton-Jones added a third after 25 minutes with Huntingdon’s problems worsening shortly afterwards with the dismissal of Luke Kennedy.

Jezz Goldson-Williams made it four in the final minute of the first half.

Burton-Jones got Rangers’ fifth goal five minutes after the restart.

Ben Colmer scored a Cromwellians consolation on the hour.

Rangers boss Tunkay Korkmaz said: “It’s good to be back to winning ways after a bad result at Yaxley in the Knockout Cup last week.

“It was important to bounce back and we did that with a good performance.

“We created a number of chances and continued to do that in the second half, even though the game went a bit flat because of the scoreline.

“I know Huntingdon are going through a period of transition with a number of young players but we did well.”

Liam Tunstall made his Deeping debut after signing from Sleaford Town.

Ian Ward, Jamie Graham and Adam Scotcher should be back for Tuesday night’s league game at home to second-placed Yaxley.

Deeping: Bircham, Flack, Smith, Tinkler, Braithwaite, Burton-Jones (Ginty), Coulson (Carter), Lewis, Goldson-Williams, Hamid, Avis (Tunstall).
