Ollie Drake praised his Godmanchester Rovers side’s game management as they picked up their fourth consecutive Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division victory last Saturday.
Rovers climbed into second place in the standings thanks to a 2-1 win at fellow high-flyers Kirkley & Pakefield.
Buster Harradine and Joe Furness both struck for Rovers in the first half and despite conceding late in the second period, Drake insists his side never really looked troubled.
“The performance wasn’t really there from us, but we managed the game very well,” said Drake.
“We defended well when we came under pressure as they played a lot of long balls forward towards the end.”
