Terry Mireku led the way with two goals and two assists as Kingston returned to the top of the table after Wednesday’s 5-1 victory at St Mary’s.

Kingston lost a goal early on but two goals within four minutes, scored by Kofi Wiredu and Gareth Chendlik, turned the game around before half time.

Kingston bossed the game after the break and Mireku extended the visitors lead,  with Chendlik adding a fourth, and another to his tally, from a pinpoint cross.

Mireku’s second strike ended the afternoon’s rout, and after the game influential midfielder Jordan Gibbens expressed his pride in the team’s performance.

“In the second half we really showed what we can do,” said Gibbens. “We all played a great game today and it showed on the scoreline.”

St Mary’s captain Graeme Edwards felt Kingston should have had a man sent off in the first half, after Kofi Wiredu kicked an opponent without catching the referee’s eyes.

“One of their players should have been sent off,” he said.

“But it was always going to be a hard game, as they are a good side. But it was an alright game I think.”
