This was Deeping’s third victory in a row ahead of their game on Tuesday night away against Boston Town in which they will bid for a fourth.

Deeping joint-manager Lee Clarke had this to say about his side’s victory: “I think the most important thing for us was to get a result on Saturday as we probably wasn’t at our best.

“After we scored the first goal it was only really going one way, and I have to give a special shout-out to Swanny (Daniel Swan) for a brilliant save that kept them out, it was truly representative of what he can do for us and how important he is for us.

“Obviously that was our third win on the bounce and it’s a good feeling in and around the club at the moment.

“I do think we are beginning to gel as a unit, but everything isn’t clicking 100% at the moment.

“I think we could and should learn to be a better defensive unit, and even though Swanny can pull off amazing saves for us, we shouldn’t need him to do that.

“We’ve now got a tough game against Boston Town in the week, but confidence is high with the group at the moment.

“It’s going to be tough, tough game, it’s always difficult against Boston, let alone on a Tuesday night.

“But, on the back of the run we’ve been on at the moment, we’re feeling very confident about the game.

“We’ll all go into the game and be confident of a win, but we’re under no illusions of the task that will be facing us.

“If we can win this or even just get a result then I think that will be perfect for us.

“Unfortunately for us, Charlie Coulson got a little injury in the game, and he will be assessed before the game on Tuesday.

“We’re hoping he’ll be available but we’ll just have to wait and see.”
