He was brought in from Fulham.
It took him just four minutes to get up and running, as he drilled home after a lovely through ball. The second came after the break when he tapped in an easy chance, and he completed his hat-trick just four minutes later with another expert finish.
Glen MacAuley completed the rout shortly before full-time with a curling effort from the edge of the box.
Next up for Neil Critchley’s squad is a game against bitter rivals Manchester United next weekend.
