Corinthian-Casuals progressed into the next round of the London Senior Cup with a comprehensive 5-0 win over Croydon on Tuesday night.

Goals from Warren Mfula, Warren Morgan (2), Tommy Smith and Gil Carvalho sealed Casuals place in the 2nd Round where they’ll face National League South side Welling United.

Casuals have now dispatched eleven goals against the Trams this season, following the 6-0 FA Cup win back in August. Manager James Bracken will also take delight in a third consecutive clean sheet before travelling to Bishop Stortford on Saturday.

The Trams frustrated their higher league opponents for half an hour until Warren Mfula broke the deadlock with a neat turn and shot that left keeper Tarell Annakie no chance.

It was just five minutes after the break when the lead was doubled – and from an unlikely source. Defender Tommy Smith got within 25 yards of goal and unleashed a curling shot that found the bottom corner.

From here-on-in there was no return for Croydon. Makeshift forward Warren Morgan added two in the space of three minutes; the first a tap in following a one-on-one with the keeper and the second, a well taken strike into the far corner.

Gil Carvalho wrapped up the scoring with less than ten minutes remaining when he pounced on the rebound from a Majed Osman shot.

All-in, it was a comfortable evening for Casuals who rode the initial bluster of Croydon and cruised to victory. Bracken’s side will now face Welling United in the next round – a side Corinth defeated 5-1 in this same competition last year.
