RAMPANT Swindon Supermarine made it ten league wins in a row with a comfortable victory over Bishop's Cleeve at the Webbs Wood Stadium.

Goals from Josh Parsons and in-form former Cirencester Town man Ashley Edenborough ensured Marine kept pace with the Evo-Stik League Southern Division One South and West title chasers.

In confident mood right from the off, the hosts took the lead in the 15th minute as Parsons converted from the penalty spot with a cheeky chip after Dave Brampton was pulled back.

Undaunted, Cleeve did their best to get back into the game and Gloucester City loan midfielder Matt Liddiard was unfortunate to see his flicked header glance the top of the cross bar.

Cleeve battled away for most of an entertaining second half, but Alex Sykes' men couldn't find the all-important breakthrough.

But 13-goal striker Edenborough could and when he was put through on Jimmy Nortei, the striker was not going to waste his chance to make the points safe for his side.

Deflated by the concession of the crucial second goal, Cleeve were fortunate not to concede a third, but despite appearing to be felled in the box, the referee waved away Edenborough's claims for a penalty.

Cleeve welcome Abingdon United to Kayte Lane on Wednesday night (7.30pm).
