POTTERS Bar Town coach Danny Bailey felt his side fully deserved their three points against Waltham Abbey.

Striker Sam Adejokun hit a brace as the Scholars extended their unbeaten run to three league games with a 2-1 win at Capershotts last Saturday.

After the encounter Bailey said: "My thoughts are we did well.

"I said to them before the game, as the manager said, we want to come here, play football and earn the three points as opposed to coming here and stealing the three points.

"I think we really worked for the win and fully deserved it."

The former Forest Green Rovers player felt there were plenty of positives to take from match, including the return to form of striker Adejokun.

"We scored some very well created goals, Sam (Adejokun) was superb today.

"If you look around, our defence was very solid starting from the goalkeeper right the way through the team."

Bailey is certain the Parkfield club are one of a handful of teams in the Ryman League Division One North who like to play attractive football.

"We are amongst the minority who get the ball down and look to pass it around and look to create good goals."

One downfall of Potters Bar at the weekend was giving away a number of needless free-kicks.

Bailey added: "Some of them were debatable. We work very hard on not giving away free-kicks in our half of the pitch.

"Sometimes we fail at doing that.

"We gave away silly free-kicks in the game, but overall the way that we coped with them is far better than we were doing at the start of the season."

The future looks bright for fans of the Ryman League club according to Bailey.

He added: "I think we have improved as a side.

"Players leaving this football club go and they generally go on to better teams in higher divisions.

"We are going to be very good next year if things carry on this way.
