Jordan Wilson scored a hat-trick as Rugby Town returned to winning ways at near neighbours Long Buckby.
It was another fairly comfortable victory for Valley, who remain unbeaten on the road in the league this season against a side that look set to prop up the division come its conclusion in April.
Wilson returned to the Town team after a two-match absence in the only change to the starting line-up following the end of their club record thirteen-game winning streak four days earlier with a 1-0 home defeat to Desborough.
Rugby once more went ahead within the opening few minutes after Barry Fitzharris won possession before feeding Edwin Ahenkorah down the left-hand side, with the wing-back's low cross fired into the roof of the net by Wilson.
Town continued to pile the pressure on the struggling hosts in search of a quickfire second, with David Kolodynski's acrobatic overhead effort to Loyiso Recci's cross being pushed away by Buckby keeper John Meadows and then Alex Lock saw his deflected strike hit the crossbar.
Wilson dragged a further chance wide of the target after Kolodynski's clever flick had played him in, before the home side finally registered a shot of their own when George Wingrove put one well wide from twenty yards.
The visitors extended their lead on eighteen minutes when Liam Francis timed his run and jump perfectly to Luke English's long-throw to head past Meadows. Buckby should really have pulled one back shortly after though, when Ethan Meadows pounced on a mis-timed headed clearance by Recci - only to scuff his effort wide.
It was pretty much all Rugby for the remainder of the half from there, with Wilson soon sending one high into the trees behind the goal after he had run onto Matt Hill's long goal-kick.
English put one wide and Kolodynski's near-post header also drifted the wrong side of the target, with Recci also missing the frame when another English throw picked out his man in the home box.
Valley did give themselves a three-goal cushion by the interval though, when another long upfield delivery by Hill was taken down in the penalty area by Wilson and then thumped powerfully home.
The hosts made a reasonably bright start to the new period, with Josh Thompson shooting wide early on, but the visitors regained control of the game and from that point on Hill was a relatively untroubled figure.
Elliott's cross from the right wing was just out the reach of three Rugby players, and half-time sub Josh Thomas curled one wide as the chances continued to come for Town.
Kolodynski and Wilson both had shots blocked, before Valley grabbed their fourth of the afternoon after a marauding run forward by Recci saw his effort parried by Meadows to Wilson's feet - who gratefully accepted the chance to stroke the ball over the line for his second treble for the club.
Meadows was then at full-length to keep out a well-struck goalbound effort by Elliott and Ryan Seal also tested the keeper with his strike, as Town threatened to add further to their tally.
The visitors missed out on making it five with another missed penalty late in the game - their sixth of the campaign, with Ahenkorah the guilty party this time when Meadows was quickly down to his left to keep out the spot-kick to make amends for him clipping Ahenkorah in the first place after Wilson had released his team-mate with an excellent searching through ball.
Elliott also missed a good opportunity to round things off with another Rugby goal in stoppage-time, but again Meadows came to the rescue with a save after the midfielder had run onto a lofted pass from Ahenkorah.
