Colney Heath 2 Holmer Green 0
TWO goals from Dean Parratt gave Heath all three points as they got back to winning ways at home to basement side Holmer Green.
Parratt was in fine form for the Magpies as they put the league's bottom side to the sword.
Parratt gave the Magpies the best possible start when he netted after nine minutes.
Parratt's cross-cum shot swerved violently and although Green 'keeper Gareth Tinsley got both hands to the ball he was unable to prevent it from crossing the line.

Heath dominated the rest of the period but were unable to build on their advantage.
Holmer Green had efforts from Ben Sturgess and Jay Gould that threatened the Heath goal but they too were unable to find the back of the net.
Heath made sure of the three points with a second goal nine minutes after the interval when Parratt grabbed his second from the penalty spot.
Holmer's half time substitute Johnny Dixon, who was making his debut, was adjudged to have handled and the referee was quick to point to the spot.
Parratt stepped up and made no mistake to give Heath a comfortable lead.
Holmer reacted well had their best period, creating a series of chances but the Magpies defence closed ranks and kept the visitors at bay.
It was a welcome victory for the Magpies after the defeat at Aylesbury Vale last week.
The result leaves Heath in eighth place in the Molten Spartan South Midlands Premier Division table.

The Magpies were knocked out of the Potters Bar Charity Cup after losing 1-0 to Enfield Town on Tuesday night.
