Brighouse Town eased to a 3-1 victory over Evo Stik NPL Division One bottom club Padiham at St Giles Road.

Tom Matthews set the ball rolling in the 21st minute when he latched onto an Adam Wilson pass to slot home.

The lead lasted just eight minutes as Louis Mayers pulled the strugglers level.

Brighouse restored their lead early in the second half when Ryan Hall played a neat one-two and buried his shot into the bottom corner.

The points were secured deep into stoppage time when Ernest Boafo collected the ball and smashed it home.
