Tom Elliott struck twice as Stockport eased their relegation fears by thrashing bottom-of-the-table Bath.

Sean Canham missed an early chance for Bath before Danny Hattersley fired in for County from inside the area.

Hattersley then set up Elliott, who fired past Romans keeper Glyn Garner, and Carl Piergianni struck from close range to make it 3-0.

Elliott then found the net with a cool finish as Stockport moved four points clear of the bottom four.
