A BRACE apiece for Afolabi Akinyemi and veteran striker Jamie Cureton resulted in a comprehensive 4-0 victory over Frome for 20th-placed Bishops Stortford,

Cureton is fast becoming Frome’s nemesis with a repeat of the two goals he had scored against Frome while playing for Farnborough earlier in the season.

After poor recent form, Frome started brightly enough, but the hosts took the lead in the 16th minute as they broke from defence with a sweeping move that was finished off by Akinyemi.

Despite the visitors playing some decent football, the final ball was always lacking and the hosts led 1-0 until the 70th minute when substitute Same Teale missed an interception and Cureton capitalised on the mistake to score with ease.

Cureton sealed the game nine minutes later with his second after the hosts had carved through the Frome defence and with Akinyemi shooting home for his second a few minutes later, Frome fans were left to ponder four successive league and cup defeats following an unbeaten five-match run.
