Aylesbury United’s winless run stretched to a season’s worst seven games when they were well beaten 3-0 at a clinical Dunstable Town.

It completed a league double over the Ducks for the title challengers as United’s slump in form continued with just three points – all draws – from their last 21 available.

Having lost to another title-challenger, Daventry Town, four days earlier, Tony Joyce’s side have now gone seven games without a win and four without so much as scoring a goal.

The hosts were two goals to the good early on as Tony Burnett netted after just four minutes and Leon Cashman in the 12th with United’s reshuffled defence all at sea.

Cashman added his second and Dunstable’s third 10 minutes from the break to put the game out of United’s reach.

Aylesbury did improve after the break and competed much better in a game which earlier had the look of a heavy defeat, but they couldn’t seriously test home goalkeeper Jamie Head who had a straightforward afternoon.
