West Ham United scored a third goal in the 76th minute and Toni Martinez scored his second, a delightful chipped effort.
Goalkeeper Trott, who was part of the Hammers team which beat Swindon 3-2 earlier this campaign, was confident his team can qualify for the next round.
He said, “We have a really strong squad this season, and when everyone is fit, it’s a really great team. All eleven players on the pitch are really talented and so are the guys on the bench who come on and help us out.
“I think we can win anything this season. Our objectives at the start of the season were a top six finish but how well we are doing in the league, we can look even better than that.
“Our form shows how much we are working at the moment and how high the concentration levels have been all season. If we continue like that we will keep getting good results like this.”
