Preston   7 - 0   Colchester

Jon Parkin scored a hat-trick as managerless Preston hammered high-flying League One side Colchester.

Chris Brown headed in the first and set up the second for Chris Sedgwick as Preston made it 2-0 at half-time.

Brown flicked on for Parkin to score his first just after the break, and he lobbed his second two minutes later.

Brown's curling shot came off the post and went in off keeper Ben Williams, before Darren Carter slotted in and Parkin's penalty completed the rout.

It marked a perfect start to Rob Kelly's caretaker reign at Preston, who sacked Alan Irvine as manager last Wednesday.

The tie had all the makings of an upset.

Aidy Boothroyd's men have won four straight games to take them up to fourth in League One, while Preston have slipped to 16th in the Championship after a run of one win in 10 games.

But, boosted by the return from injury of Ross Wallace, the hosts ran riot.

Neill Collins had already volleyed wide from a good position when North End took the lead, Brown heading in his eight goal of the season and fifth in cup competitions from Wallace's inswinging corner.

The second goal arrived after 27 minutes when Sedgwick's angled shot took a wicked deflection off Paul Reid and looped over Williams.

Five minutes before the interval Colchester had a chance to get back in the game when the ball broke to Steven Gillespie, but the forward miscued with the goal gaping.

Less than 90 seconds after-half-time, Brown flicked on a Callum Davidson long ball for Parkin to spin and smash a low shot beyond Williams' grasp.

Parkin's second was his best of the afternoon, a stunning lob over Williams - whose afternoon got worse when Brown's shot smacked the post and went in off the back of the keeper's head.

Carter cut through a demoralised Colchester defence to score the sixth, while Magnus Okuonghae's foul on Parkin allowed the former Stoke striker to complete his hat-trick.


Preston caretaker manager Rob Kelly:
"It has been a difficult week but I am delighted for the players and the supporters.

"It has ended on a positive note and we're in the hat for the next round.

"We said to them 'affect what you can affect' and no-one can ask any more.

"They have been very professional the last few days and I think you saw a professional performance and it is the players who get 100% credit for it and no-one else."

Colchester United manager Aidy Boothroyd told BBC Essex:

"Everything that's got us success in terms of our work ethic, our organisation and everything that's become our hallmark this season, we didn't do today.

"Anything that could go wrong did go wrong.

"We have just had a complete and utter off-day, the only thing that was consistent was our fans."
