Substitute Pamment struck twice in as many second-half minutes to inspire Worthing to a 2-1 victory over title-chasing Billericay at Woodside Road.

The frontman has not started any of the previous five matches but Worthing's top scorer took his tally to 14 in the league with a fine double after coming on to replace wing-back Alex Parsons early on.

Hinshelwood was delighted to see Pamment come off the bench to win the game for his team and said: "Kieron (Pamment) has been waiting in the wings - our top scorer - comes in and shows his class with his two goals. I felt in the past few weeks Kieron has been trying too hard when he's been getting on.

"I'm absolutely delighted he's got his two goals, he's a great player. Even Jared (Rance) aswell, another that's been waiting in the wings, came in and took his chance."

Despite such a superb victory, Hinshelwood is looking for his troops to improve in one area.

After Pamment's quickfire double, former Brighton & Hove Albion striker Jake Robinson pulled one back almost immediately to make it a tense finale.

The home side also had defender Joel Colbran dismissed as he collected a second yellow card a minute from time as they ended with ten men.

Hinshelwood wants his young team to learn from this and previous matches by making sure they do not give teams a sniff in the future.

He added: "If that doesn't give us the belief that we are a good team then nothing will but at the same time we must learn to stay switched on for the 90 minutes.

"It was a game we should have seen out 2-0. For whatever reason we seem to let teams back in - whether to keep the fans or myself on our toes, I don't know - but it always seems to always be the case. It's something you are going to get with a young side, when we do click and get it right we are a real handful."

Worthing will be looking to back up their fine win over Billericay when they visit sixth-placed Staines Town on Tuesday (7.45pm).
