Bicester M1s beat Wycombe IIs 6-1 at Cooper School to keep them firmly in the hunt for promotion in MBBO Division One.

The hosts started well and took the lead with CJ Birtles firing home from a short corner, only for Wycombe captain Robbie Leung to quickly equalise.

Bicester remained on the front foot though, and Luke Smith soon had the first of his three goals following some good work from Dave Sutcliffe, who himself got in on the act with a deflection from a yard out to make it 3-1.

Jonny Reid then added a fourth before Smith completed his hat-trick and the victory, with Man of the Match going to player-coach Andy Brown for his outstanding performance in the midfield.

Bicester are six points behind top spot with two games in hand. They face second-placed Banbury this week.
