BOSS Tom Killick watched Poole Town ease to a 3-1 win over Chippenham Town before admitting he had never been concerned by his team’s goalscoring prowess.

Dolphins had only managed three goals in their previous seven Southern Premier encounters but cut loose in a rampant first-half display against the Bluebirds.

Matt Coupe turned the ball into his own net early on and then Cherries teenager Joe Quigley scored the second goal of his Tatnam loan spell in the 17th minute.

Soon after, Marvin Brooks was fouled in the box and Steve Devlin sent keeper Kent Kauppinen the wrong way from the spot.

Alex Ferguson pulled a goal back for Chippenham in the second period but victory was never in doubt for the home side.

Killick told the Daily Echo: “In most games we have created chances so we weren’t as concerned within the team as some people have been outside of it.

“Things can get exaggerated and sometimes conclusions get jumped to but I always felt we had enough quality to score goals, so I wasn’t overly concerned.

“We knew that our starts had probably let us down in the past couple of games so we wanted to make things difficult for Chippenham in the early stages and put them under pressure.

“This was a very good performance and the right result and I think the players deserved it.”

Dolphins: Hutchings, Tallack, Lindsay (Martin, 75), Walker, Whisken, Pettefer, Burbidge, Devlin, Quigley (Roberts, 67), Brooks, Gilkes (Maloney, 70). Unused subs: Davis, Thomas (g/k).
