Josh Cooke almost added a third when he rounded the substitute Hayes keeper but his effort was cleared from inside the six yard box by a retreating defender.

On the hour, Ben Lund’s cut back cross was fired goalwards by Butlin but blocked for a corner.

Butlin made it 3-0 on 75 minutes. Put clean through, his right foot shot got a touch off the keeper but found the back of the Hayes net.

He then added his second in the dying minutes of the game.
