Ashley Morrissey, who has had a spell on the bench for the first team lately, welcomed his chance to impress from the start and grabbed a hat-trick.
Jay Caines also scored in the first half and provided a fine cross for a net breaking volley for Tommy Twelves, before Alex Foster completed the rout.
On Saturday, with the first team out of the FA Cup, Joe Sweeney’s squad was again boosted by players in need of action after bench duty.
