THE league title now looks beyond Winsford Saxons but they continue to seek promotion.

Black Horse have come up fast on the rails, and after a 2-0 win against Saxons in midweek are yet to drop a point in 12 matches this season and are four points clear of the nearest chasers in Chester and Wirral Football League Championship B with at least two games in hand.

Saxons, after their 4-0 success at Chester Nomads on Saturday, are fourth with a game in hand on second-placed FC Duddon United and third-placed Waggon & Horses, who are six and five points in front of them respectively.

So, going into this weekend's final home game against bottom side Orange Athletic Chester, it remains tight with four matches remaining.

"It's been a season of lessons, but we've grown as a club, on and off the pitch," said Saxons manager Gary Lee Jamieson.

"We feel it's been a productive first season in the Chester and Wirral Football League, giving us a competitive league will only enhance us."

The 4-0 win against Chester Nomads replicated the first encounter between the sides last month.

Greg Lumsden fired Winsford ahead when his shot looped over the goalkeeper.

And then James Cain headed in a second from a corner by Ben Curbishley.

Lumsden made it 3-0 before half time, firing in a free kick.

The scoring was wrapped up when Callum Herbert added his 12th of the season, rounding the keeper and firing past the defender.
