Luton Town 8 Hayes & Yeading United 0 

Hapless Hayes & Yeading United plunged back into the relegation mire after they were torn apart and humiliated by rampant Luton at Kenilworth Road this afternoon.

The Hatters were 3-0 up after just 13 minutes and the onslaught continued with a further four goals in one of the most one-sided halves of football witnessed at this level, and probably any other, for some time.

Kevin Gallen opened the scoring after just six minutes before the irrepressible Claude Gnakpa grabbed a brace in three minutes, his first a low drive from 20 yards and his second a powerful close range header.

Ram Marwa should have reduced the arrears instantly, but he put his header wide from Adam Green's whipped cross.

Gallen grabbed his second, a lovely hit from 20 yards, in the 23 rd minute before Keith Keane made it 5-0 three minutes later after pouncing on Tom Cadmore's sloppy pass.

Tom Craddock nodded in Gnakpa's left-wing cross before Jake Howells bundled in the seventh after Craddock's shot had bounced off both posts.

Despite a bright opening to the second half United were soon preparing for another re-start after Craddock beat Masters at the second attempt after his initial shot crashed against the bar.

Luton substitute Liam Hatch then missed two golden chances as Luton continued to run rings around the overwhelmed visitors who, on this evidence, have their work cut out to reach the 50 point safety barrier from their seven remaining games, starting with Oxford United's visit to Church Road on Good Friday.

Hayes & Yeading: Masters, Allen-Page, Green, Cadmore (cpt), Ruby (James, 45), Marwa, Canham, Fitzgerald (Wishart, 69), Cochrane (Mulley, 45), Ide, Harris. Attendance: 6,761 (146 from Hayes & Yeading).
