Isaac Olaofe notched his first Football League hat-trick as Stockport enjoyed a thumping 5-0 victory against Wrexham.

Last season’s beaten play-off finalists condemned the Welshmen to a first away defeat of the season, and a first loss since the opening day.

Stockport scored three times in a dream 11-minute spell in the first half at a sold-out Edgeley Park.

Olaofe notched first, sliding in to convert Will Collar’s low cross in the 21st minute.

Minutes later Olaofe headed against a post before the County striker added a second on the half-hour mark.

He profited following a defensive howler by Ben Tozer as he smashed home past Mark Howard.

Aston Villa loanee Louie Barry then went on a mazy run before slotting home his sixth goal in his last six league games.

Olaofe completed his treble five minutes into the second half when he dived in to head home from Barry’s deflected cross.

Wrexham’s Elliot Lee struck the crossbar late on, before Stockport sub Paddy Madden wrapped up a memorable third straight win with a 90th-minute close-range finish.
