A brace from Charlie Brown, plus additional tallies from Anjorin and Gilmour gave the visitors a 4-0 lead at the interval.

On 27 minutes, Brown doubled Chelsea's advantage after he was fed by Anjorin and the Nigerian was involved in the build up to his team's third goal when his effort was parried by the goalkeeper, before he scored the last goal of the half in the 40th minute.

Uwakwe had two chances to increase the lead in the second half before Gallagher scored Chelsea's fifth in the 62nd minute.
