The current leaders of the Ryman League Division One North table, were dealt a heavy blow on Tuesday when they were thrashed 5-0 by second-placed Concord Rangers.

Then on Thursday, despite a much better performance, the Blues bowed out of the Ryman League's Championship Manager Cup competition at the quarter-final stage with a 2-1 defeat, after conceding a last-minute goal at Croydon.

“It was a tough week for us, two long journeys and two defeats,” said Chapman. “I told the lads to take the attitude from Thursday's game into [Saturday's] game in the league.

“The boys were first class, got a great result, put in a solid, workmanlike performance in tough conditiions on a bobbly pitch.

“We matched them in all areas in the first half and it was 0-0 at half time then we scored three really good goals. We completely deserved the three points.”

He was pleased that so many fans travelled to Wakering to support the Blues, over a hundred.
