Kurtis Guthrie’s first-half hat-trick left Welling United on the brink of the title on Saturday.

The striker has waited a while to make his mark for the Wings but got off the mark in style, leading Welling to a 4-1 home win over Weston-super-Mare.

They now need just one point from their last two games to make sure of a return to the Blue Square Bet Premier for the first time in 13 years.

Without a goal in his first 20 appearances, Guthrie broke his duck after 23 minutes when he headed Ross Lafayette’s cross into the corner of the net.

He doubled his tally four minutes later with a low shot and the home crowd could scarcely believe it when he completed his treble before half-time. Again Lafayette was the provider, and Guthrie’s header was deflected into the Weston net.

On-loan striker Jake Reid poked in a fourth following more great work from top scorer Lafayette before the visitors scored an injury time consolation through Peter Monk.

By this time all eyes had turned to events in Essex where Salisbury City were taking on Billericay Town. The Wiltshire side’s come-from-behind win meant Welling’s championship celebrations had to be put on ice for one week at least.

They travel to Boreham Wood on Saturday looking to complete the job.
