Comment from the Coach


A good win for us today, but one that I was not totally satisfied with.

The scoreline of 5-2 was a solid win but we need to get better at converting the opportunities we get - they did not get a sniff in the first half - but we simply did not get the goals on the board.  We should have been in double digits today.

But, it did not help with the ref who missed blatant free kicks, did not allow a superb James H headed goal and the tackle of James as he was going for goal was at minimum a penalty and should have been a red card - but we must take the decisions as they come and play on.

Again, I was very impressed with the defensive line - evidence is we are by far the lowest conceders of goal in the league when you look at games played - great effort guys.

Tom played a masterful game today, nutmegging at will and deft placements setting up many attacking opportunities.  Callum's first goal was a delight to watch - need more of them!  Raph's goal was the culmination of some deft moves we have not seen on the training pitch before - nice to watch!  Man-of-the-match for the second week running is Martin - another tireless display rewarded with 3 goals that could have been 5 if the bars where a millimetre thinner.

Areas for us to continue to work on are heading (look to the examples of Andy and Tom today - this is what makes the best teams), more talking (only fits and starts today…unlike training where we cannot keep you quiet...), passing under pressure and general fitness - a bit of puffing towards the end - and not just from the spectators….

But tonight guys, savour the fact we are top of league table - well deserved!
