St Albans City returned to winning ways in the National league South with a 3-2 win over Welling United on Tuesday night.

The victory ended a run of six league games on the bounce without a win for Ian Allinson’s side and sees the Saints climb back into the play-off places.

In soaking conditions, City started brightly and raced into a two goal lead as new signing Charlie Walker grabbed his first and second goals for the club.

His first effort was a smartly finished volley on 16 minutes, which he followed up with a scrambled strike.

City enjoyed the better of the game for the remainder of the half, but saw their lead halved four minutes before the interval after Christian Nanetti’s deflected strike.

Louis Theophanous restored the two-goal advantage with 68 minutes on the clock before Adam Coombes grabbed a consolation in injury time.

The Saints will look to claim back-to-back wins in the league for the first time since December 10 when they take on Poole on Saturday.
