    'I SHOULD HAVE GOT MORE'

    Speaking after the game, hat-trick hero Ollie Watkins said:

    “I think when the first one went in I pinched myself a little bit because you know I scored so early on, but yeah you know I'm just delighted that I could contribute and we won at the end of the day.

    “Unbelievable, before the game I wouldn't have thought that I'd score three goals, but you know after the first one, [I] got a bit of confidence and grew into the game.

    “I got chances, I think at the end of the day I should have got more in the end.

    “I don't know if I was offside for the other one, but I think one on one with the keeper I've got to be scoring that.

    “You know, you can always improve, and I think I back myself to score that.”

    Martin Atkinson brings a quite incredible game to an end.

    Ollie Watkins picks up the match ball and tucks it under his arm.

    He's scored a hat-trick against the current Premier League champions.
