Bideford beat Abingdon United 4-2 in the Zamaretto Southern League
BIDEFORD rediscovered their scoring boots with a 4-2 win against Abingdon United in the Zamaretto Southern League.
The Robins had failed to find the net in five games since the 1-1 draw with AFC Totton at the beginning of the month.
But goals by Matt Andrew, Ben Wood, Sean Downing and Kevin Squire sank the Oxfordshire side in front of a crowd of 96 at the Sports Ground on Saturday.
Andrews scored the first on the half-hour mark when he fired past goalkeeper Alan Foster from 12-yards after the visitorsâ€™ defence had failed to clear their lines.
After the break, United defender Kevin Halliday was shown a second yellow cards for dissent and their misery was quickly compounded when Wood grabbed Bidefordâ€™s second after being played in by Squire.
Squire was also the provider for Downingâ€™s goal 15 minutes later before the visitors pulled one back with a deflected Aaron Parfitt effort.
With Abingdon pushing forward for more, Squire got on the score sheet himself with Bidefordâ€™s fourth.
Graham Lewis finished the scoring when he cut in from the left and fired home from 18-yards in the final few minutes.
