FIVE wins in a row has left Potters Bar Town manager Steve Browne feeling delighted.

Saturday's 4-2 success over Chatham Town was the Scholars' fifth straight victory as their fine form continued.

Browne said: "That's five on the bounce now and I'm delighted."

Daniel Francis and Ryan Edgar both netted twice to ensure the Parkfield club stay in 12th spot of the Ryman League Division One North table.

Of the entertaining Chatham match, which saw six goals fly in, Browne said: "It was a good game for the spectators, it was end to end.

"I didn't think we defended well and they could have scored after a couple of minutes, but the character within the side at the moment is fantastic.

"They are not lying down and they do not want to lose and that showed today (Saturday)."

Town may well currently be on the crest of a wave, but Browne believes his side still have plenty left in their tank for the rest of the season.

"Again full credit to the lads, there is a lot more to come from them.

"Chatham were quite a big, physical side and the greatest thing now is we are battling with teams, competing and we now have an edge."

Browne's side had led 2-1 at the break, however he was not pleased with aspects of his team's play.

"At half-time we were disappointed we had given away free-kicks and corners, when they were naturally their strong points."

Despite conceding a leveller early in the second period, Bar went on to score twice more to claim the 4-2 victory.

Browne singled Francis out for praise, while making sure all his players claimed credit for the triumph.

"Daniel (Francis) took both of his goals fantastically, although he should have got another to make it 2-0, but you can't take away the effort from all of the players.

"We were well pleased again with the performance and long may this run continue," he added.
