Moseley's march up the Championship table took two steps forward at Molesey Road with an impressive dismissal of beleaguered Esher.
This bonus point victory, their fourth win of the league campaign, saw them leap-frog both Plymouth Albion and London Scottish and in doing so the thin thread by which their top eight hopes once hung, now looks a little stronger.
Maybe even strong enough for them to haul themselves out of the bottom four and into the promotion play-offs. Now that really would be a Great Escape.
Can they do it? They can. Will they do it? The next two months will tell us that but they will stand a chance as long as they continue to perform as they have done in the last two weeks.
The victories over Doncaster and Esher were not achieved with perfect displays but they were good enough to demonstrate Moseley still deserve their place in the second tier.
Especially when their forwards operate with the determination they showed here and while it is probably good enough to say that to a man they were hugely admirable, Tom Warren and Chevvy Pennycook warrant special mention.
Warren because he is a young man, learning on the job in the scrum while never letting his standards drop in the loose, where he was a constant menace with the ball and without it.
And Pennycook's tireless running is even more admirable considering the fact he spent much of last week in bed suffering with flu. He really is a gem.
But there was a resilience about the collective too. They lost David Lyons to a hand injury in the warm up and Dan Sanderson came in unfazed and played well.
And skipper Andy Reay left the field after half an hour with a recurrence of the rib injury he picked up at Nottingham.
But unlike Meadow Lane where their midfield defence crumbled in their captain's absence, Moseley reorganised by shunting Greg King to No. 12 and bringing Anthony Carter forward to outside centre. After that the Red and Black line was breached only once.
And even then that was merely to concede a consolation try to the impressive Esher full back Charlie Walker.
By that stage Mose were 29-7 ahead following Reay's exchange of passes with Sanderson and Neil Mason's twisting touch down in the first half.
King was jonny-on-the-spot when Esher spilled in their own 22 early in the second and Carter finished off an excellent move initiated by the impressive Brad Davies and sustained by the equally good Billy Robinson.
Perhaps even more noteworthy was the manner in which the Moseley forwards strangled the life out of the final half hour. No one will fancy playing Kevin Maggs' upwardly mobile outfit at the moment.
