TOM Killick admitted some people would not give Poole Town the credit they deserved after back-to-back home wins.

Dolphins failed to triumph in seven Southern League South matches at Black Gold Stadium before they secured two victories in four days with a comprehensive performance against Walton Casuals.

Poole on Saturday dominated Kings Langley and continued their recent upturn against the Surrey outfit.

James Ewington gave the visitors the lead in the 35th minute however five minutes later Cherries loanee Jake Scrimshaw poked home an equaliser.

Shortly after half-time, Luke Roberts netted his 50th Dolphins goal before Sam House doubled the advantage in the 62nd minute.

Killick told the Daily Echo: “I thought it was another strong performance from us.

“People will probably go away from our past two games saying slightly disparaging things about the opposition but I believe that is not giving our players the credit they deserve for making sides who are very capable of getting good results look less than ordinary.

“It was galling to start so well by creating so many chances and find ourselves a goal behind. But, I thought the players responded well.

“Young Scrimshaw showed what he is capable of by nicking a goal which got us back in the game.

“It was vital we scored before half-time. In the second half, they obviously tried to be resilient and get people behind the ball but I felt we showed patience and scored two more good goals.”

Substitute Scrimshaw, who fired Cherries into the last eight of the FA Youth Cup on Friday, came on in the 10th minute after veteran striker James Constable succumbed to a hamstring problem. Roberts had also been forced off in the second half but boss Killick hoped it was not a major issue for the talented forward.

“I was pleased with the performance,” said Killick. “The only cloud was the fact James Constable picked up a hamstring injury and Luke Roberts came off as well but that is not as serious. With the amount of games we are playing Saturday-Tuesday, unfortunately injuries come with the territory.

“If you look back at the past six home games, most of them have been strong performances. The Chesham game was not great and it sounds weird but the loss to Swindon Supermarine was a strange 15 minutes where we conceded all the goals.

“We did not quite get the results our performances merited. The past two games have been a lot closer to where we should be.

“However, we cannot afford to be carried away. As soon as we start thinking everything in the garden is rosy then it will all unravel. We have to try to be consistent and plough on.”

Victory lifted Dolphins within touching distance of the play-offs, one point behind fifth-place Harrow.

Poole are on Saturday due to travel to 11th-place Swindon Supermarine hoping to extend to six their unbeaten run.
