Adam Salley bagged a hat-trick as Portadown swept to a five-goal victory away to Knockbreda.

The 22-year-old opened the scoring on 24 minutes with a glancing header into the far corner of the net after Christopher Cane had knocked on George Tipton's short corner.

Salley struck again ten minutes later with a drilled finish past Jack Hazard from Stephen Teggart's right-sided cross that wasn't cleared by the Breda defence.

Lee Bonis, a summer signing from Seagoe, added a third just after the hour when he held off the attention of his marker to stab the ball home after Salley turned provider to create the opening.

And Salley claimed the match ball just five minutes after that, converting from the spot after he had been brought down inside the area.

Ports skipper Luke Wilson completed the scoring on 72 minutes with a header into the top corner from another Tipton corner.
