Matt Godden treble helps Stevenage see off Nantwich Town



Posted Sunday, November 05, 2017 by PA

Matt Godden scored a hat-trick as Stevenage made light work of thrashing Northern Premier League side Nantwich Town 5-0 to reach the second round of the FA Cup.

The visitors were in the contest for 68 minutes at the Lamex Stadium but an inability to defend set-pieces proved to be their undoing.

League Two Stevenage went ahead after 16 minutes from their first real chance, as Godden flicked in Joe Martin's free-kick at the near post amid some loose marking.

Just before the half-hour mark, Nantwich almost drew level as Nathan Cotterell played in Harry Clayton and he forced Joe Fryer to beat away his well-struck effort.

Stevenage eventually doubled their lead when Smith blasted in from Martin's corner before the same combination finished the match as a contest, with Smith heading in off the bar.

Godden claimed a double of his own with a neat finish into the bottom corner from yet another Martin assist before completing his hat-trick late on by diverting in Dale Gorman's volley.
