McKenna's precise through-ball found Crisp to side-foot home the opener before he added his second by toe-poking past Green.
Crisp got his hat-trick when, after looking to have lost the ball after taking on three players, the ball deflected back into his path and he sublimely curled the ball into the top corner from 20 yards. It was 4-0 as Manning's cross was headed home by Harvey-Cooper at the far post.
