Crowd favourite Bailey completed his hat-trick, Jamie Dawes achieved the same and Angus Raeside scored his 10th of the season.

The best strike though came when Josh Mawhinney cut in from the right and buried a dipping left foot shot just under the bar from the edge of the Harpenden penalty area.

Centre-halves Jason Pawlaczek and Frankie Buckler both impressed and defender turned stand-in 'keeper Andy Bromwich was cool under pressure in goal.

This week the Wanderers travel to Oxhey for the semi-final of the Sir Stanley Rous Cup.
