When was the last time you watched football? Carpenter was gone a while bk and was past his best then!, how could you even consider him back and as our missing attacking option in midfield. Maybe this means your knowledge on football is as bad as your history with Bluesteele

Albion's reserves romped to a 8-1 victory tonight, including a first-ever hat-trick for Guy Butters.

Joe Gatting bagged a brace, while Jonny Dixon, Joel Lynch and Doug Loft also made the scoresheet on a comfortable evening for Ian Chapman's side.

A delighted Butters said, "It was a dubious second one, but I'm claiming it!

"I've scored twice in games before, but that's my first ever hat-trick as a pro.

"We started off a bit sluggish, but you know what these games are like - it's what you make out of them. Once we got the ball down we played some good stuff."

Albion went into the interval three goals up, but it could have been a lot more were it not for Aldershot keeper Will Dukes. He made a string of fine saves, the pick of the bunch a brilliant double stop to twice deny Gatting from close range.

Dukes was finally beaten by a looping header from Butters on the half-hour mark, and the Albion defender doubled his tally when he turned in Kerry Mayo's corner from six yards - perhaps with a little help from Shots defender Peter Hibbert.

Dixon produced a lively attacking display against his former employers, and the striker made it 3-0 before the break with a deft lob after a cheeky flick from Jake Robinson.

The visitors pulled one back in the 57th minute when Lucas Pickett gave John Sullivan no chance with a left-foot shot that rocketed into the top corner.

But Gatting made it 4-1 when he headed past Dukes from Dixon's fine cross, before rounding the Shots keeper after Joel Lynch's through-ball to notch Albion's fifth.

Lynch made it six when he finished from 12 yards after a clever chest down from Dixon, and Butters completed his hat-trick in the 89th minute with a powerful header from Gary Hart's cross.

There was still time for Loft to round off the victory with a low drive from the edge of the box.

Albion: (4-4-2) Sullivan (Winterton); Fogden, Butters, Lynch, Mayo; Robinson, Wills (Pearson), Loft, Hart (Foreman); Dixon, Gatting. Sub not used: Beda.
