Potters Bar Town captain Leigh Rose is looking to start climbing the Isthmian League Premier Division table, following their weekend win at Kingstonian.

Rose broke the deadlock just before the hour mark with his third goal of the season on Saturday, with Isaac Currie sealing a 2-0 win for the Scholars five minutes later.

Although they remain in the relegation zone on goal difference ahead of a home date with Hashtag United on Saturday, they have lost just one of their last 11 league matches - at runaway leaders Hornchurch.

And Rose says there are reasons to be more optimistic about their fortunes, telling the club website: "We drew a lot of the early games in that run, was struggling to hit the back of the net, and even today first half we're still doing that, but team morale is good.

"We feel like we're a team now, it took a while to get going this season but we feel like we can push on now. We need to get the results and hopefully climb up the table."

Having drawn 2-2 at Dulwich Hamlet in midweek thanks to goals from Ryan Hervel and Temi Babalola, Bar saw Laurie Shala glance an early chance wide for the home side.

Rose fired well wide of Rob Tolfrey's goal at the other end, before Bar thought they had got their noses in front through Tyrone Baker, but his shot was cleared off the line by Rudy Allen.

Kingstonian's Eddie Dsane put the best chance of the first half over the crossbar from close range on 37 minutes, but Ore Bello had penalty claims turned down after the restart.

Skipper Rose turned in the box and struck on 55 minutes with a low effort and Currie claimed his first goal for the club just past the hour mark to give Bar extra breathing space as they pulled seven points clear of their hosts.

"First half I thought we was poor to be honest," added Rose.

"They were getting in behind, getting a lot of space, but we got a bit of a rocket up us at half-time, knew what we had to do when we came out second half, and luckily got two early goals. And then it was always going to be one winner."

As for his own effort, Rose said: "Toe punt or outside of the boot into the corner, I'm not sure what one, but I've been needing a few more goals so it's good to be back on the scoresheet to be honest."

Bar were set to visit basement boys Haringey Borough for a Velocity Cup tie in midweek, before returning to league action against Hashtag at the Lantern Stadium.

They travel to lowly Concord Rangers next Tuesday (December 12).
