Avondale has extended its unbeaten run to 11 matches after defeating an injury riddled Oakleigh Cannons 3-0.
Coming off an impressive FFA Cup win - the Cannons dominated periods during the first half.
Joe Guest had the best of the first half chances while a number of penalty shouts were ignored by the referee, to the frustration of the visitors.
Midfielder Goran Zoric created a number of chances and was one Oakleigh's best before suffering an injury to his right hamstring seconds before the break.
After an uneventful homeside the home side kicked into gear as Matthew Reid opened the scoring in the 49th minute.
The goal buoyed the league leaders into action as their lead was soon doubled when Liam Boland squared the ball to Yitay Towns, who made no mistake from close range.
Salt was added to Oakleigh's wounds in the 83rd minute when Yusuf Ahmed beat John Honos at the near post with a low shot.
Guest gave the Cannons some consolation with a stoppage time goal but was ultimately overshadowed by another solid performance from Avondale, who extend their unbeaten run to 11 matches.
