WORTHING Football Club boss Adam Hinshelwood praised his side’s character after their 4-3 win over Guernsey on Wednesday evening, although was left disappointed with the two late goals his team conceded.
Rebels conceded after just 13 seconds of the Ryman League South Division match but then dominated the game and four second-half goals put them in full control.
Worthing’s goals came from Lloyd Dawes, Brannon O’Neill and Curtis Gayler, who scored twice and now has nine goals in his last four matches.
However, Guernsey pulled two late goals back and Hinshelwood said afterwards: “It’s a weird type of feeling because to go 1-0 down and then come back into the game the way we did was tremendous character from the players.
“To get three wins on the bounce is obviously good but I’m left disappointed because these goals that we are conceding are going to come back to haunt us when games are tight and we’re playing against top teams.”
Rebels are now sixth in the table, just two points behind Whyteleafe who occupy the final play-off position and Hinshelwood said: “I’ve said all along that if this group was to get on a run of form and get playing with confidence, they could be a hard group to stop and they’ve got that way.
“Long may it continue, we go in to Saturday with lots of positives but it’s going to be another tough test.”
Rebels travel to Hythe Town on Saturday.
