Despite having the better of the opening five minutes, Nikki Bulls side turned on the style and raced into a 2-0 lead through a double from last season’s league top scorer Elliott Buchanan who notched his second and third league goals for the Blues in an explosive first half performance.
The hosts started the second half much the same as they finished the first with Buchanan missing two opportunities to grab his hat-trick. The ‘Gate did make it 3-0 just before the hour as Yado Mambo headed home from a Donnelly corner to all but secure the three points.
Weston Super-Mare made a triple sub and came into the game more in the final fifteen minutes and threatened Lewis Ward in the Gate goal with several half chances.
Weston got their reward in the 79th minute as McCoulskey side footed home his 6th goal of the season in the 80th minute.
