Aaron Opoku blasted a hat-trick as Carlton Town reached the next round in style. The powerhouse striker bullied Spalding United’s defence all afternoon – although the Millers were forced to recover from an early blow. Luke White put the Tulips ahead on six minutes but Carlton claimed control following a quickfire double before the break. Opoku headed home the equaliser and Mamoke Akaunu tapped in after a mistake by keeper Michael Duggan. Opoku converted Akaunu’s cross and completed his treble with a terrific strike into the roof of the net.
