Jamie Leacock praises Thatcham Town effort after convincing win over Staines Town
Thatcham Town manager Jamie Leacock felt his side were well worthy of their 4-0 home win over Staines Town on Tuesday night.
The Kingfishers secured their first win since October 2 as Alex Miller, Daniel Fosu, Lamin Ceesay and Glenn Gabriel all scored in the win.
As a result, it moved Thatcham up to 11th in the table and Leacock was thrilled to secure the three points.
“We spoke after the Guernsey game about putting a run together after the defeats and draws and it was important we got the win against a team near us in the table.
“We talked about having a quick start before the game and then we trained on Monday, which is something we wouldn’t do because we knew how important the game was.
“We worked hard on wanting to have the fast start and I was really pleased that everything came together.”
Thatcham raced into a 3-0 lead at half-time and the Town boss believes they deserved to have a commanding lead at the break.
“We were well worth the goals we scored and I think it was because the boys kept sticking to the game plan and kept doing the things we asked them to do.
“At 3-0 we spoke about the next goal being the big one, but we managed the game well and while I could be harsh and say we could have done more in the second half, but we did what we had to do.”
The Kingfishers now look ahead to a home game with Westfield on Saturday, a side who sit one place below them in the table.
“It’s three games unbeaten and we have had a lot of defeats by the odd goal and we have not had the luck, but we showed a lot of quality and we got what we deserved,” Leacock added.
