All the damage was done in the first half when Trent Blewett, Rhys Loxley, Ben Rogers and skipper Liam Merigan gave them a 4-0 half time lead, while Canning were reduced to 10 men when Joe Correia was sent off.

Forrestfield coach Rod Banjac said it was a good all-round performance, at a ground they haven’t had much success recently.

“The boys played very well today, I’m very pleased to come here and get a well-deserved three points,” he said. “We haven’t had much success against this side.”

The visitors made the perfect start and were ahead on 13 minutes.

Canning suffered a huge blow three minutes later, when skipper Callum Roberts limped off, and seven minutes later they were reduced to 10 men when Correia was given a red card.

After that let-off Forrestfield pressed and doubled their lead six minutes later.

Forrestfield ended the half well and added a third when Ben Rogers clearly lobbed the on-coming Chudy before Merigan capped off a great first half by added the fourth late.

Chudy was keeping the scoreline respectable, saving well to deny Rhys Loxley, and Hasani Sinclair as Forrestfield looked for a fifth.

That eventually came 10 minutes from time, good approach work by Jimmy Duncan on the left ended with a cross to Sinclair, whose first shot was well saved by Chudy, but the striker was quicker to react to fire home the rebound.
