PAUL CHAMBERS was delighted with his men after Ashford United stretched their unbeaten run to seven games on Saturday.
Liam Whiting netted two in a 2-1 win over Seven Acre and Sidcup but it could have been more.
Chambers said: “I thought we did really well and we played some good stuff. We should have finished them off and put the game to bed earlier but we were relatively comfortable winners even after they scored. We should have probably scored six or seven to be honest.
“We had plenty of chances but their keeper made some good saves and we missed a few opportunities.
“But if we win every game 2-1 I’d be a happy manager because the main thing is getting the three points.
“Their lad took their goal well but we weren’t lucky. If anything they were lucky because we didn’t score loads more. We were always in control.
“Results went our way and I still think there’s a good chance we can get to third if we finish well. There’s even a little chance we might finish second.
“Bly are going to win the league comfortably but if we win our last three games we have every chance of moving up the table. A lot of teams up the top have to play each other still too.”
Chambers reserved praise for two-goal hero Whiting but it’s not only the players on the score-sheet that are catching Chambo’s attentions.
He said: “Liam’s header was absolutely great and the build-up for his first was very good too.
“Tom Scorer did well down the left and Liam got into the position to turn it in.
“Firthy (Aaron Firth) has been with us six or seven games now and he’s not scored which I think is playing on his mind.
“But I’m delighted with him as he works his socks off for the team and I think he just needs the ball to hit him and go in and he’ll be on his way.
“Mo Munden was great for us too. Dan (Noden) was struggling with his hamstring and Billy Rice has broken a bone in his hand but Mo stepped in and was tremendous. He organises well and his kicking and distribution is still very good.”
United travel to Erith & Dartford Town on Bank Holiday Monday (3pm).
Roy Guiver missed Saturday’s game with work commitments but he will be back available again.
Dan Scorer, Sam Conlon and Mo Takaloo are all still out.
