Liam Hughes scored twice as Cambridge thrashed struggling Stockport.

Hughes pounced to fire in the opener after 19 minutes when Ian Ormson failed to hold Josh Coulson's shot.

Danny Whitehead quickly levelled the scores from long range, but Coulson restored the home side's lead with a scuffed shot just before the break.

Hughes added his second from 20 yards, before Tom Elliott applied the finishing touch to a swift counter attack to make it 4-1.
