Demolition job by rampant Nailers as Romulus see red
BELPER Town ran riot against a demoralised Romulus side that had two players sent off.
The Nailers took full advantage with a club record nine-goal haul in this Evo-Stik Division One South encounter.
Simon Harrison opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 10th minute following the sending off of Romulus defender Richard Munday for a foul on Shaun Tuton.
Tuton put the Nailers 2-0 ahead two minutes later with a strike from 22 yards.
The Nailers tightened their grip on the game when Colin Marrison headed a third in the 17th minute.
Tuton grabbed his second in the 52nd minute, scoring a superb solo goal after a 30-yard run.
Romulus were then reduced to nine men when Daniel O'Callaghan was dismissed for a second bookable offence.
Steve Warne added to Belper's total with a cracking volley from the edge of the area.
Richard Stirrup then scored with an unstoppable effort in the 73rd minute and Jon Froggatt, making his first appearance of the season after injury, hit another in the 77th.
Stirrup scored his second before Marrison bagged the Nailers' ninth.
