Diamonds took an early 6th minute lead when Ben Farrell curled home a 20-yard effort.
The visitors doubled their advantage 2 minutes before the break when the appropriately-named Ben Diamond headed home Luke Fairlamb’s cross.
And two goals in the space of 6 second half minutes around the hour-mark from Joel Gyasi and Fairlamb with a free-kick wrapped up a comfortable win for the visitors.
AFC Dunstable were 3-1 winners at tenth-placed Ashford Town (Middx), taking a 37th minute lead through BJ Christie.
