Marheineke is referring to the signifance of the result rather than the size of the scoreline in a 1-0 triumph against Ware at ProEdge Westwood Road. Declan Rogers struck the decisive blow with a cool finish six minutes before the break to register his first goal since joining Saints a couple of months ago. They now find themselves four points off the summit following a number of midweek fixtures involving other high-flying teams. They are also in possession of a three-point buffer over the team immediately outside the play-offs, and also possess a game in hand. in action. Marheineke said: The win against Ware was as important as any result we have picked up all season. It was massive to get three points on a day when seven of the top eight teams in the table all won. We cannot afford to lose any ground at such a vital stage and we cant allow the chasing teams to gain on us either. Were in the driving seat for a play-off spot at the moment, but things can change very quickly. It was great to see Declan get his first goal. He had been disappointed not to take a good chance at Bedford in our goalless draw there on Easter Monday, but he responded very well. He is a great lad and has been a good addition since he came in. Saints hit the road for Beaconsfield SYCOB this Saturday (3pm) and will be without defender Steven Gentle, who starts a three-match ban following a recent dismissal. Marheineke is bracing himself for a stern test even though the hosts have fallen out of play-off contention. He added: Beaconsfield are one of the best footballing teams weve faced and expect it to be a very difficult game. Theyve probably got too much ground to make up to be in with a chance of reaching the play-offs themselves, but theyve beaten some top sides at their place and we cant afford to be added to that list.
