Hayes & Yeading 4-0 Staines Town
LUKE Williams bagged a second-half brace as Hayes & Yeading put four past Staines Town without reply.
United bounced back from the disappointment of Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Eastleigh with a performance of real class against a Staines side looking for their third win on the spin.
First-half strikes from Kudus Oyenuga and Jerome Anderson put Nas Bashir's men firmly in the driving seat before Williams took centre-stage after the interval with a double blast.
Reece Hall was the first to try his luck on a rain-soaked night at Kingfield but the Staines winger's 30-yard drive whistled past the outside of James Beasant's post.
Moments later and the Swans found themselves defending a corner at the other end, however a mix up in the defence allowed Oyenuga to nip in and smash home the opener.
Oyenuga could have made it two before the 20-minute mark but the former Spurs youngster scuffed his left-footed shot after being put through by tricky midfielder Williams.
Some clever one-touch play on the edge of the Staines penalty area between Oyenuga and Dan Spence then freed Anderson who saw his firm shot saved well by Jack Turner.
Anderson would not be denied and on 29 minutes he had his goal, the forward lurking in the area to tap home following a rampaging run and shot by lively full-back Calum Butcher.
Staines almost produced an instant response at the other end, when tall striker Cyril Ocansey hooked the ball goalwards, only to see his effort hacked off the line by Pele.
The second-half started at a much slower pace with Sam Cox dominant in the centre of the park and Oyenuga and Williams forcing saves from Turner in the Staines Town goal.
And it was Williams who grabbed United's third on 70 minutes, controlling the ball smartly finishing low into the bottom corner with his left foot.
His namesake Manny then entered the fray, along with Tobi Joseph, as boss Bashir took off Danny Wishart and goalscorer Anderson.
But the focus was soon back on Luke as the versatile United man bagged his second of the evening, slotting home from six-yards to wrap up the three points.
