WGC boss Howard Cowley said his side were desperate to triumph against Leverstock Green ahead of their slender 3-2 victory on Tuesday night.

Cowley had seen his team go four league fixtures without a win before their success at Herns Lane against their county rivals.

"We were desperate for three points and beat Leverstock with a very positive display," said the Citizens manager.

WGC have performed very well in recent times against the team from Pancake Lane.

This season they have knocked Green out of the Herts Charity Shield quarter-final and now completed the league home and away double over them.

"They must be sick of playing us," said Cowley. "We have played each other three times and we've beaten them three times this season.

"At the end of last season we won against them as well, so have won our last four matches with Leverstock, which is nice to have."

After the victory on Tuesday Cowley admitted the points could easily have been shared.

"If it had been a draw it would not have been an unfair result," he said.

"There have been lots of games in which we have dominated possession and come away with nothing.

"In the second half they had the majority of play but we defended well. We have had games like that."

With 12 league matches left this term, WGC look safe from any kind of relegation threat and at best can hope for a mid-table finish if they string together some wins.

"Looking at the table we are in danger of getting caught by a couple of the teams below us and getting dragged down," said Cowley.

"We don't want to be in the bottom six. If we get a run together we can go up a few places."
