A clinical first half performance from FC Leytonstone laid the foundation for a comprehensive 6-1 win against Lotus Sport.

Mikael Martin broke the deadlock as he had the simple task of tapping home from close range following good work from Adil Gite.

Yasar Patel then added a second as he collected a pass from Martin and finished elegantly.

Leytonstone notched their third after Ahmed Pele played in Gite and he struck a powerful drive into the bottom left hand corner.

Lotus were desperate for half-time but the hosts scored a fourth as Ahmed Pele latched onto a Zulqi Khan free kick and his effort found the net.

Leytonstone eased off in the second period but they still added two more goals to their total. Sergio Garcia stroked home the fifth of the afternoon and Patel grabbed his second to round off the win.
