Greene Shoots: Heat made it hard work
The thoughts of St Neots Town boss Dennis Greene after his side’s 4-0 win over Daventry United on Saturday.
THE game against Daventry went exceptionally well for us.
We wanted to try and get ourselves in front early on and, although that didn’t happen, we were well on top.
It was hard work for them to contain us and we told the boys at half time to just keep the ball.
We did that and in the end, we won comfortably 4-0, but it could have been a few more than that.

Stefan [Moore] maybe could have had three in the first 20 minutes, but wasn’t quite decisive enough.
[Shane] Tolley probably had three chances and scored two clinical goals where as Stefan had five chances and scored two, but they’ve worked ever so hard.

The heat made it hard work out there, but we brought on Junior [Kanuda] with 35 minutes to go to just kept the ball for us.
And they must have been fed up with him by the end, because they couldn’t get near him and had to work really hard to contain us.
Although we had to be patient we were confident that, if we kept passing the ball around and opening up the space, the goals would come.
We’ve managed to score in every game this season so if we keep a clean sheet, we’ll always fancy ourselves to win the game.
I thought Daventry were a credit to their management, as they never gave in and put themselves on the line, were blocking things and their keeper made some great saves.
They were up against, let’s face it, a really strong St Neots side for this level, and their team worked hard to keep the scoreline down.
