Wycombe boss Gary Waddock has praised Stuart Beavon after his hat-trick blew away Bristol Rovers 3-1 in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
Matt Harrold pulled one back for the visitors, but Beavon was the star of the show, taking home the match ball to set up a home draw with Cheltenham in the second round.
Waddock said: "We know how good a footballer Beavon is and we have been on at him from day one about his shots and taking chances and he did, so he's given me lots to think about.
"He got a fantastic hat-trick and has also hit the crossbar and his all-round game was good, which it normally is anyway.
"He has scored goals at every level he's been and we knew it would come here too and that he just needs to be a bit more consistent.
"You could see after the first goal that he grew in confidence and I'm delighted for him. He has real hunger, loads of energy, makes good runs and his movement is good and you can see in training that his finishing is very good too and it's all about transferring it into matches, which he did."
