James Byatt also scored for Duncan Morris’ men, who had opened up a commanding 3-0 lead before the interval.

Gower scrambled the ball home with 15 minutes remaining, from Dan Bradley’s free kick and he won the match with five minutes remaining.
Church Stretton Town’s Shropshire FA Challenge Cup third-round tie at AFC Broseley was abandoned early in the second half.
Stretton were leading 1-0 when a home striker suffered a broken leg.
James Clifford struck home a 25-yard free-kick but Clee Hill United lost 6-2 at home to Morda United.
Stevie Preece netted Hill's other goal, after good work by Tom Evans, but the hosts were well beaten.
Hill boss Wayne Whitbread said: "We did not play badly and everyone worked hard but we trailed 4-1 at the break.
"We had five players missing but Simon Lane and Dave Shorter, who normally plays in goal, ran their socks off.
"We needed everyone at the top of their game to have any chance of beating Morda."
Bishops Castle Town also crashed out of the cup after a 2-0 loss at Rock Rovers.
Castle boss Andrew Green said: “It was a very poor performance and we can now concentrate on trying to get promoted. We lacked a buzz and I don’t think we had a shot on goal.” Green is hoping to welcome back striker Craig Williams for Castle’s Mercian League Division One trip to Hanwood United Reserves this Saturday.
A brace from Craig Morris helped Newcastle to a 3-1 win at Bronllys in Mid Wales League (South). Newcomer Billy Hyatt, from Knighton Town, was also on target for Newcastle who achieved a league double.
