FC Halifax Town 3-0 Welling United

Lee Gregory scored a first-half hat-trick to hand Halifax a comfortable win over visitors Welling.

Gregory headed in an early opener from an Adam Smith cross and followed it up with a superb overhead kick.

The hat-trick was complete after he tapped in a driven Dan Gardner cross from close range,

Welling's misery was capped off when Kutris Guthrie saw his penalty parried away by Matt Glennon after Ryan Toulson had clattered into Loick Pires.
