GRABBING three points with a late winner at home to Northwood will benefit Potters Bar Town, according to Scholars boss Steve Browne.
A late Precious Koko penalty secured the victory after home keeper Ashlee Jones had kept out a spot-kick at the other end.
Browne said: "It was a dour game but we said it weeks ago that we have to grind out results and getting three points today (Saturday) holds us in good stead.
"I don't think it was a good performance by either side but we are grateful for the three points."
The match was decided on two penalty decisions and outcomes in the final 15 minutes of the game.
"For the first one there was no need for George (Sifonios) to commit the foul and you think here we go again," said Browne.
"Ashlee redeemed himself from the other night and saves the penalty and you think it has got 0-0 written all over it.
"You go up the other end and then we get a penalty. I think the referee was going to give a free-kick and we were lucky the linesman stood his ground because he gave the penalty."
The win was the Scholars' first at Parkfield in four attempts following three consecutive defeats there.
"It's been a long time since we've had a home win, but as I said to the boys they have to keep plugging away," said Browne.
"I'm pleased we got the result and we need to keep grinding out results.
"It's not about what other teams do, it's about what we do.
"If we get a couple of wins we can maybe relax a little bit and then really start our building process."
