Stoke Potters defeated the Isle of Wight 48-42 at Smallbrook Stadium on Tuesday to claim their third consecutive win in the National League.

Taking a six-point lead into the final heat, Simon Lambert and Tim Webster preserved Stoke's advantage by coming second and third respectively.

It followed Sunday's 53-40 victory over Belle Vue at Loomer Road on Sunday.

The Potters are now fifth in the table, five points behind leaders Hackney with five meetings in hand.

"This was a very hard earned three points for us," said Stoke manager Malcolm Vasey.

"We are nicely placed, a point behind [second-placed] Dudley and five points adrift of Hackney with several matches in hand on them, so we are ticking along nicely."
