I thought we were very good in that second half and could have come away scoring 4 or 5 in the end. Enormous credit to the Staines goalkeeper who made half a dozen genuinely excellent saves throughout the afternoon. Indeed, I thought Staines' performance, particularly first half, belied their struggles so far this season.

Although we'd created plenty in the first half, I felt that we were a little flat, a little lacksidasical at times and that there was a lot more to come. Whatever Jimmy said to them at the break certainly worked.

Impressed by Calcutt, early days yet but I think he could give us a little more than Morgan did. Not only a good target but more mobile and a bigger goal threat. Also thought Bayley Brown slotted in well in the middle of the park when he came on - he gave us a little more control and shape than we've had for much of the season. Have always liked him when he's played against us, the manager's suddenly got a surfeit of options which can only be a good thing.

His namesake, Cole, is a player whose contribution I think has flown under the radar a little - that winner was up there with pretty much anything last season, super strike.

As Rob says above, things are clearly continuing to come together as the manager tweaks. We're stronger now than we were at the beginning of the season - a couple of very big tests on the road in November at Salisbury and Tiverton. Looking forward to them.
