Rovers, who are yet to win in the league to date, were up against it as early as the 2nd minute when Liam Dulson gave the hosts the lead.

Rene Howe added a second after 31 minutes and it was 3-0 right on half-time when Dulson grabbed his second of the game.

Things got even worse for Barton 3 minutes into the second half when they had Michael Samson shown a straight red card.

But Temilola Akinbuyose immediately reduced the deficit for the ten-men, only for Dulson to complete his hat-trick from the penalty spot on the hour-mark to make it 4-1.

Leigh Rose, on as a sub, made it a nap hand for Paul Halsey’s side in the 77th minute.

Kidlington showed they are not going away and moved into second spot, swapping places with hosts Kempston Rovers, who suffered their first league defeat of the campaign.

What turned out to be the only goal of a tight game came as early as the 7th minute from the Greens` Rhys Wells.

Berkhamsted are now fourth after ensuring Cirencester Town remain without a win since being switched from the south section.

The Comrades edged a 3-2 win at Broadwater, responding immediately after Nick Hancock had given the Centurians an early 3rd minute lead with a response straight away from Alie Bangura.

Josh Chamberlain put the hosts ahead after just 9 minutes, only for Levi Irving to equalise in the 19th minute.

A second for Chamberlain 2 minutes into the second half in the end proved decisive.

Hadley earned a second win since winning promotion at Wadham Lodge against another league newcomer, Walthamstow.

It was a disappointing evening for new Stow boss Nicky Ironton, who, after a goalless opening period, saw the visitors break the deadlock 8 minutes after the restart through Billy Hayes.

Luke Alfano then bagged a brace on 76 and 83 minutes, with Zach Uribarri adding a fourth goal 2 minutes into stoppage time.

Didcot Town are seventh after ending a run of six league and cup games without a win.

The Railwaymen beat AFC Dunstable 3-2 at the Loop Meadow Stadium, taking a 39th-minute lead through Jamar Smith.

A George Palmer own goal pulled the OD’s back on level terms 7 minutes after the break, only for Taylor Bedwell to restore the home side’s lead on the hour-mark.

But Lucas Kirkpatrick equalised on 71 minutes.

Jenson Wright put Didcot back in front with 6 minutes remaining and the visitors finished with ten-men when they had Max Hercules shown a straight red card in stoppage time.

Two teams in the lower end of the table, Waltham Abbey and Harlow Town, shared a 1-1 draw at Capershotts.

It looked as though the Hawks were heading for only a second win of the campaign to date when they led through Terrell Egbri’s 23rd minute effort right until the 89th minute when Solomon Baugh popped up with the Abbots` leveller.
