Josh Griffiths scored a first half hat-trick as Wyrley again beat higher league opponents comfortably to progress to the third round of the Cannock Chase Cup.

Wyrley took the lead after 15 minutes when Kneller set Luke Shail free down the right and his pull back was met by Griffiths to slot home with his left foot from the edge of the area. The second came in similar fashion as this time the hard working Tom Kneller managed to squeeze a cross in from the right. Mikey Clayton thought he’d scored for the second week running only to see his shot blocked but Griffiths was there to score with the follow up.

The third goal came just before half time when the commanding Josh Bradley intercepted a through ball and played a one-two with Clayton. He advanced & played in Kneller but his shot was saved & again Josh Griffiths was there to complete a left foot hat-rick.

There were numerous other chances with Ashley Gunn volleying over from a difficult position & Bradley heading over from a corner.

Half Time 3-0

Chase swapped players around in the second half in an attempt to contain the Wyrley attacking threat but to no avail as Wyrley increased their lead on the hour mark with Luke Shail getting on the score sheet following up a Kneller effort saved by the keeper.

Ashley Gunn hit over from a good position after being set up by Griffiths as Wyrley closed out the game to make it three successive clean sheets.
