Bedlington Terriers leading scorer Lee Scott bagged a brace in a comfortable victory over a hard-working Tow Law on Saturday.

Both sides created chances in a fairly even opening half with Terriers making the breakthrough in the 38th minute when Liam Clarke was brought down in the area and the referee pointed to the spot

Scott took the spot kick and put the home side ahead.

After the break the Lawyers hit back with a superb equaliser just four minutes in when Matty Soulsby gave home keeper Jak Wells no chance with a good finish.

But within minutes Scott restored the Terriers’ advantage with his second goal of the game.

Even losing 2-1, Tow Law never gave up and were well still in the game.

That was until Bedlington secured the three points with two late goals.

Kyle Oliver and Jack Foall were both on target to seal the points and a 4-1 victory at Wefare Park.

This was Bedlington’s sixth win in their last seven games with manager Paddy Atkinson fully deserving maximum credit having had to rebuild the squad from scratch since former manager Andy Ferrell’s departure.

On Wednesday night Terriers travel to Newcastle Benfield for a League Cup tie.

On Saturday Bedlington are away to Thornaby in the league, kick-off 3pm.
