Hungerford Town manager Danny Robinson feels the club are 'moving forward' after vital home win over Dartford

Hungerford Town manager Danny Robinson believes the mindset of the football club is changing after seeing his side beat Dartford 2-1 at Bulpit Lane.

Sol Wanjau-Smith and Max Ram netted the goals for the home side as they got their play-off bid back on track.

After securing their fourth consecutive home win of 2022, to remain unbeaten in the calendar year, Robinson wants to see his squad continue their momentum.

“We have to back up what we have done and if we can string together two or three wins together then it will boost us for, dare I say it, our play-off charge.

“The mindset of this football club was to always look behind you, but I am not like that and I want to keep moving forward.

“This club is moving forward, you just have to see the attendances and the love and the affection which is being put back into this football club.”

Prior to Christmas, Hungerford’s home record was very inconsistent and failed to match up with their form on the road.

However, since the turn of the year, the roles have reversed and Robinson is desperate to link them both up together.

“We just have to be more consistent,” said the Hungerford boss. “It’s amazing because we were so good away from home before Christmas and now we’re so bad away from home.

“We were also very bad at home and now we’re very good at home, we have four wins on the bounce so bring on Concord [on Saturday].

“If we matched the two records together and didn’t drop silly points like we did at Hemel and Braintree, we’d be right up there.”

Hungerford are certainly defying expectations, and have done since Robinson took charge, and the manager is only looking up.

“That’s the frustrating bit as a manager, when the league table starts and the fixtures come out in the summer, everyone thinks Hungerford Town are going to get relegated.

“Everyone thinks we’ll finish bottom, but we’re sat ninth and have two games in hand and if win them then we can go back into the play-offs.

“If someone offered me that at this stage of the season, I would have bitten their hand off.

“I thought that if we were at it [against Dartford] then we could cause them problems and I think you could tell by my starting 11 that is was very forward-thinking and very on the front foot.”
