Boss Daubeney remains cautious despite United’s fine recent run

Boss Paul Daubeney was wary despite his side making it five consecutive league victories without conceding a goal on Saturday.

Daubeney was pleased to see his side finish off with all three points, but felt they made the it difficult for themselves.

He said, “It was a great goal, but we should have gone on to win by more.

“I wasn’t overly happy with Saturday’s performance, it was a scrappy game and we should have made it more comfortable.”

The only goal of the match came as Simon Catt fired home a strike that was worthy of winning any game in the opening stages.

Catt hit a dipping volley from 25 yards to put his side into the lead after just 11 minutes.

United could and should of made the scoreline greater, but Oakwood ‘keeper Jess Grimstone was in inspired form and prevented numerous United chances throughout the course of the match.

Next up United travel to Steyning Town on Saturday on a fine run of form, but Daubeney was quick to warn his side that this game will not be a formality.

“We go into the game on a run of just one defeat in 16, but that defeat came at the hands of Steyning.

“I have been lucky with my team selection over recent weeks but I will not be able to name three of our starters on Saturday – Lee Jules, Billy Trickett and Pete Cooper the absentees.”

UNITED: Sargent, Lee, Jules, Featherstone, Hughes, Bunn, Stracey (Ferguson), Trickett, Russell, Catt, Cooper.
