Khalsa got themselves back on course with a bang, serving up six of the best to secure three vital away points.

With both sides having just three points in the bag so far this season, it’s hardly surprising that for large sections of the game, both sides were a little edgy.

But, ultimately, four second-half goals, including a brace by new signing Luke Shearer, helped Khalsa along.

Khalsa almost took the lead on four minutes, Danny Ashton’s delightful free kick curled onto the post via the fingertips of Aiden Stone.

Mike Perks did open the scoring three minutes later, driving an absolute rocket of a shot past Stone from outside the box after good work by Ashton and Shearer.

Dave Meese almost doubled the lead two minutes later from a Joe Rogers cross on nine minutes, while at the other end Tom Turner was forced to make two good saves to deny Jack Edwards who first expertly sprung the offside trap but was unable to finish and then minutes later was given too much space to get in his shot.

Khalsa doubled the lead on 35 minutes, Shearer’s header from Johnny Haynes’ cross hitting the bar, leaving Ashton the simple task of tapping in.

Brocton continued to fight with decent chances either side of the half-time break. Luke Wright fired a volley just before the interval which needed Turner to be in his toes and then just after the restart, Turner flapped slightly at a corner and Josh Wilson should have done better with his header opportunity.

Craig Bannister made it three on 53 minutes, taking opportunity of Stone being off his line as an attack was broken up to lob the keeper from 25 yards.

Brocton pulled one back two minutes later, the impressive Edwards smashing a rocket from range past Turner to make it 3-1.

But any jitters were soon dispelled when Meese headed home on 62 minutes to make it 4-1.

With Khalsa comfortable and Brocton going into damage limitation mode, it was a question of how many the visitors could get. Shearer made it 5-1 with his first goal for Khalsa on 68 minutes, chinking, twisting and turning into the box and curling home a finish in off the post.

At the other end, however, Brocton continued pushing and Turner again had to be on his toes to stop substitute Paul McMahon as he broke through.

With seconds left on the clock, Shearer grabbed his second, finishing well from a Joe Rogers cross.

Sporting Khalsa: Tom Turner, Joe Rogers, Johnny Haynes, Carlo Franco, Tes Robinson (Rudy Misambo), Dave Meese (Alex Perry), Mensah Kinch, Mike Perks, Luke Shearer, Craig Bannister (Simeon Townsend), Danny Ashton.
