Smith praises Blues

smith v tonbridgeJoint manager Steve Smith praised his side as they overcame a horrendous journey to win 2-0 at Whitehawk on Saturday.
Despite a four and half hour coach trip to Brighton, goals from youngsters Alfie Mason and Olly Miles saw Blues pick up their third straight win and move up to tenth in the Bostik Premier table.
“It was another great result for us” said Smith “After a horrendous coach journey we didn’t arrive at the ground till 2:55 and they made us kick-off at 3:25, but credit to the boys we carried on from where we left off last week.
“As I said last week we knew we had to get the three points and we got a special bunch of lads at the moment. We started the game a bit slow but worked our way into the game and got our noses in front when curo hit a great free kick that came off the post and Alfie was there to put us 1-0 up.
“I said to the lads at half time I knew we would get chances in the second half to kill the game off we just had to be resilient and defend properly. We certainly did that I think they only had one shot that hit the bar and the one right at the end where Arthur made a good safe and from the resulting corner we got our second goal when we broke away and young Olly got put through and won us the game.”
“”In the second half we could have had a couple more but our final pass let us down but overall absolutely delighted.”
“That’s three wins on the bounce and clean sheets now. We now have two home games, and if we get something out those games it could be a very exciting end to the season.”
“Thanks to those that travelled to the game yesterday, your support is always well appreciated, roll on next Saturday and hopefully pick up another three points.”
