TYRESE CAMPBELL further enhanced his ever-growing reputation with a stunning hat-trick as Stoke City's U18 side secured a spot in the last 16 of the FA Youth Cup.

The highly-regarded 17-year-old needed just seven minutes to break the deadlock following an incredibly lively opening and just four more to net his second of the evening and leave Nottingham Forest with a real mountain to climb.

Luke McCormick offered some salvation with a superbly taken strike of his own shortly before half-time, but the dismissal of Choz Charlesworth, for a clumsy challenge on Harry Souttar 10 minutes after the interval, swung the tie back in the home side's favour.

It was Campbell once more who was on target to effectively put the game to bed with another impeccable finish from 15-yards out midway through the second half before substitute Harvey Read rubbed salt into the Forest wounds late on.
