Jake King scored twice as Admiral made up ground on the leaders with a convincing victory despite their late defensive lapse.

Chris Bourne set up Admiral’s opening goal with a pinpoint cross for Jordy Ndjeka and Ali Yaslem finished off to make it 2-0 after good work from Ashley Taylor-Forbes.

Ramie Rifat capitalised on another excellent cross from Bourne to extend his side’s advantage and King netted his first of the night – with Taylor-Forbes again providing the assist – to make it 4-0 at half-time.

King added a second after the break and Taylor-Forbes also got his name on the scoresheet – but Admiral then eased off and allowed Vegas to pull back three goals before the final whistle.

Admiral are continuing to raise funds to help 11-year-old Tony Clark – the son of their manager Anthony Clark – who is battling a rare form of leukaemia.
