Chelmsford City boss Rod Stringer revealed his thoughts following Saturday’s 2-0 win over Chippenham Town in the Vanarama National League South.
The City boss spoke of his pleasure at ending the Clarets’ run of six games without a league win – a spell stretching back to December 23rd.
“I’m delighted to get the win,” Stringer told the club`s official Pitchero website. “We’ve had a really bad January in the league and it has been tough. As much as we’ve dropped points, we’ve had the energy to keep going here today and the boys have bought into that.
“There were six or seven decisions we didn’t get, and I was thinking it’s going to be one of those games. It only broke for us because of Batty nipping in being long, rangy and quick and confusing the centre-half to get goal side and get the penalty. Before that I was screaming for three or four little things, but it doesn’t surprise me at this level.
“Overall, I thought we were outstanding, I thought we ran the game. We had a little low patch in the second half because it’s sometimes harder when you’re playing against ten, and I would have liked to have put them to bed early but to do it the way we did was fine.
“At the moment we’re buzzing, and it helps to get back to back wins. Hopefully that might just revitalise the club. We’ve got a tough one away from home but hopefully we’ve got good form against Dartford. There are no easy games and it’s a tough division.
“At the moment Sam Beasant’s still injured slightly. Unfortunately for Nathan Gartside it’s a tough level, he’s here for experience but he was involved in the two defeats. I went with Jake Jessup last Tuesday night and he kept a clean sheet and he’s kept a clean sheet here”.
