Allinson Impressed But Saints Still Have It All To Do!

While title chasers have been the talk of the National League South in recent weeks, St Albans City have gone quietly under the radar.

Their first ever win at Twerton Park on Saturday saw them leapfrog Dartford into the final play-off place.

And while you could forgive fans for thinking the hard work is done, boss Ian Allinson believes that couldn't be further from the truth.

“I’m pleased we’re in the play-offs but we’ve now got to finish the job off," he told the club's video service.

“We’ve got three really tough games left but we’ve got to try and win as many as we can.

“It’s going to be tough and we’re under no illusions."

The Saints followed up last week's fine win over Chelmsford with three more points against Bath.

With Concord and Torquay still to come, Allinson was impressed with his players' discipline.

He said, “In some ways we’ve come here and stole a victory but sometimes you have to win ugly.

“They are a very good side and they will cause plenty of teams problems.But we got our rewards thanks to our discipline."
