RUDY Plummer got Blackfield & Langley back to winning ways in the Evo-Stik Division One South yesterday.

The nomadic frontman struck twice as the Watersiders triumphed 2-0 at Larkhall Athletic to return to second spot – just a point behind leaders Yate Town who lost 2-1 at home to Barnstaple.

After a first-half devoid of chances, Plummer headed home Ryan Oatley’s superb cross from close range with 65 minutes gone.

It remained that way until the last knockings when handy man Plummer beat the centre-half for pace on a slippery surface before slotting home his second.

“Larkhall are a strong, physical outfit and we matched them,” said B&L co-assistant boss Chris Farrell.

“They had the league’s leading scorer (Lewis Powell) and he never had a sniff.

“When you consider we’d lost two on the spin in the league, it was important we got a result.

“Everyone played well – and they had to. I don’t see too many clubs going to Larkhall and beating them 2-0.

“It was a very good day for us with other results going our way.

“We’ve got Bideford at home on Saturday. Let’s see if we can win again.”

Blackfield have dual-signed Hisham Kasimu from Wessex outfit Team Solent, but the striker’s first loyalty is to the Solent University side.

There was frustration for Winchester City yesterday when heavy rain prompted the 1.30pm postponement of their Evo-Stik Division One South fixture at rock-bottom Fleet Town.

Craig Davis’s Citizens return to league action at home to Evesham United on Tuesday (7.45pm).
