After falling behind to a Danny South header, Scawthorpe levelled right on half time when Gary Mundy’s cross was turned into his own net by Danny Patterson. 

Ross Duggan restored Joker’s lead after 74 minutes and then Shaun Mundy fired wide with a great chance for the equaliser before Duggan immediately made it 3-1 and then completed his nine minute hat trick.
