Strikers run riot in league cup
Gary Frost's side followed up their FA Cup triumph against Carlton with another superb display.
This time it was hapless Northampton Sileby Rangers in their sights in this league cup preliminary tie.
It was one-way traffic from the off, with Will Britton putting the hosts on their way with two goals in the opening half an hour, the second a fine volley from a corner, before Aaron Eyett made it 3-0 just before half-time.
Ben Davison snuffed out any hopes of a Sileby revival with a fourth goal straight after the interval and Eyett helped himself to his second on the hour mark as he smashed the ball into the top corner.
The visitors pulled one back after 78 minutes but Jordan Nuttell completed the rout with seven minutes to go.
The Poachers are now away to Wellingborough Whiteworth in the 1st round.
