Sam Matthews treble downs Solihull Moors

Sam Matthews hit a hat-trick as rampant Eastleigh crushed Solihull Moors 4-1 in the National League.
The midfielder on-loan from Bournemouth stole the show with the first three goals as the visitors ended a run of four straight defeats to finish the season in style.
Matthews opened the scoring in the 34th minute, sweeping home a cut-back from Chris Zebroski.
He doubled his tally in the 52nd minute with a fine individual goal, driving forwards before firing home.
Matthews completed his treble just three minutes later, tucking home a loose ball after a ricochet fell to him in the area.
And Matthews was involved in the fourth goal too, getting to the byline and sending the ball across the face of goal for Paul McCallum to tap home.
The hosts grabbed a consolation in the 76th minute as Adi Yussuf cut inside and blasted an effort into the top corner, but Eastleigh were already home and dry.
