Mohamed Eisa's treble downs Port Vale

A hat-trick from top-scorer Mohamed Eisa helped Cheltenham secure an emphatic 5-1 home win over Port Vale.
Eisa took his goal tally for the season to 17 while Elijah Adebayo and Will Boyle were also on the scoresheet against a Vale side who had equalised in the first half through Tom Pope's penalty.
Eisa opened the scoring in the 13th minute after a pass from Sanmi Odelusi.
Pope levelled in the 35th minute from 12 yards after Harry Pell tripped Luke Hannant in the box.
But Eisa restored Cheltenham's lead a minute before half-time after goalkeeper Rob Lainton advanced to challenge Odelusi, but failed to collect the ball, leaving the striker with a tap-in.
Cheltenham extended their advantage in the 66th minute when Fulham youngster Adebayo, who had just come on as a substitute, scored the second goal of his loan spell at Whaddon Road.
Eisa had a chance for a hat-trick in the 74th minute, but Lainton claimed well at his feet as he raced through one-on-one.
But he completed his treble in the 79th minute and Boyle rounded off the scoring with a header at the far post from Kevin Dawson's corner in the 86th minute.
Scott Flinders saved well from Pope's free-kick and Jake Andrews cleared off the line from the striker in stoppage time.
