Runaway leaders Yeovil opened up a 12-point advantage at the top of the
Nationwide Conference, increasing Leigh RMI's relegation concerns in the process
with a victory at Huish Park.
Following early pressure, Glovers striker Kirk Jackson opened the scoring on
19, firing home his 11th goal of the season from close range before doubling the
advantage two minutes later, heading home Darren Way's cross.
It was all one-way traffic for the Glovers with Leigh showing very little in
the final third.
And it was little surprise when Kevin Gall, celebrating his
Wales U21 call-up, made it 3-0 on 36, with a close-range effort for his sixth
goal in four starts.
Veteran striker Keith Scott handed the Railwaymen a lifeline four minutes
before the break following good work from Andy Heald, but it proved only a
consolation for the visitors.
The second-half offered little in terms of incident, with Yeovil the likelier
to add to their tally.
Michael McIndoe, Andy Lindegaard and Darren Way were off
target with efforts, while Gall brought out the best in Leigh keeper Stuart
