POOLE Town emphatically ended their search for a home league win with a resounding 3-0 success over promotion hopefuls Kings Langley.

Dolphins had been without a Southern League South triumph at Black Gold Stadium since beating table-toppers Taunton back in October.

But a dominant display and goals from Marvin Brooks, Corby Moore and James Constable saw Poole ease past one of the division’s form teams.

Boss Tom Killick told the Daily Echo: “I thought the manner of the victory was pleasing. We dominated from the start and in the first half we could easily have been four or five goals up.

“In the second half, which is where we have had difficulties in past home performances, we carried on going forward and being positive.

“I thought the 3-0 win was deserved and was a fair reflection of the game as well.”

Brooks got Dolphins off to a flying start when he lunged to get on the end of a Luke Roberts drive, bundling over the line after nine minutes.

Poole supporters could not believe it when their side went in at the break just one goal up having had two shots cleared off the line, with some around the ground feeling they had gone in.

Dolphins doubled their lead shortly after the hour mark when Moore tapped home after Roberts’s mazy run.

Constable got the goal his performance deserved in the 73rd minute, capitalising on a poor clearance to head into an empty net.

Poole moved up to eighth as a result of the victory, fuelling hopes of a play-off bid.

“There weren’t too many chances we completely wasted,” said Killick.

“James Constable will probably be very frustrated with a header he missed in the first half but there weren’t many glaring misses.

"I felt our attacking play was incisive and creative and we sustained pressure on them throughout.

“That’s the positive thing from our point of view – sometimes you will have games when they will fly in and sometimes it feels as if they will never go in. It’s creating the chances that is the main thing.”

Dolphins will hope to secure back-to-back wins for the first time since November when they entertain Walton Casuals on Tuesday (7.45pm).

Dolphins: Cairney, Dickson, Smeeton, Leslie-Smith, Whisken, House (Boote, 75) Griffin, Moore, Constable, Brooks (Grange, 84), Roberts (Bedford, 75). Unused subs: Hubbard, O'Connor (g/k).

Wimborne Town’s fixture at Hartley Wintney was postponed.
