Braintree Town 0-4 Harrogate Town

Harrogate strengthened their hold on a National League play-off spot with a convincing 4-0 win at bottom side Braintree.

Three first-half goals earned the visitors a routine win as they condemned sorry Braintree to a fifth straight defeat.

Harrogate came flying out of the blocks and Jack Emmett opened the scoring after only two minutes, poking his finish over Ben Killip as the goalkeeper advanced off his line.

Mark Beck made it two in the 10th minute, taking advantage of a loose ball to round Killip and fire home.

George Thomson killed the contest with a third in the 37th minute, knocking home the rebound after the over-worked Killip denied Jack Muldoon.

Muldoon was involved in number four early in the second half too as his fine low ball across the face of goal was knocked home by Beck for his second of the match.
