LINCOLN Moorlands Railway's brilliant 8-2 victory away at Armthorpe Miners Welfare on Saturday is a result which has been coming for a while, says assistant boss Baz Barker.

The Moors, now up to seventh in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division, blasted out of the blocks and were 5-1 ahead at half-time.

They continued their impressive display for the second 45 minutes to register their biggest win of the season and leave Barker hailing the performance as the best display of their campaign so far.

"This kind of result has been coming for a while to be fair," said Barker.

"The gaffer (Chris Moyles) has made a few changes to the team and the formation and the changes have worked for us almost immediately.

"I can honestly say that the first-half performance was the best display from this football team since myself and the gaffer have been in charge.

"Some of the goals and the football we played to create the chances was absolutely fantastic.

"I can't express highly enough how good we were. It is definitely the best football we have played this season."

Moyses brought in John Giles at right back with Dave Scott at centre half.

Ben Good was played up front, with Sean Cann on the left and former Lincoln City youngster Nathan Adams just behind Good in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Moorlands' goals on the day came from Cann (3) Adams (3) and Joshua Schofield hit two.

"We have always asked the players to give us commitment and 100 per cent effort," said Barker.

"If they do that the quality will come through, because we have it in abundance.

"There have been a few Sunday mornings when we have woken up with smiles on our faces, but this display beats the lot. It was fantastic."

The Moors will hope to take the same form into their mid-week clash against Nostell Miners Welfare on Wednesday evening, with the only worry for the management duo being who to pick for the starting line-up.

"Everyone will want to play," added Barker.

"It's not just 11 or 12 players, we have a squad of 17 or 18 who are all playing well and fighting for a place in the side."
