Norwich United’s poor start to the season continued with a 5-2 reversal at Brentwood Town which leaves them rooted to the bottom of the table.
Steve Eastaugh included on-loan Henry Pollock and new signing Matt Brown in his starting line-up.
The Planters went behind after 19 minutes when Matt Price scored from the spot. Harrison Georgiou extended the lead seven minutes later and Andrew Freeman gave the hosts a three-goal lead eight minutes before the break.
Lawrence Cheese scored his first goal for the club to reduce the arrears three minutes before half-time to give the Planters some hope and when Ben Jones scored a second 13 minutes ino the second half hopes of rescuing something were heightened.
But Matt Price calmed home nerves with a second penalty with just four minutes remaining and he completed his hat trick with an injury-time goal.
