A 6-2 away win for Deeping Rangers left manager Michael Goode to call it their 'best league performance of the season' so far




Deeping Rangers manager Michael Goode described his side's dominant display at Wellingborough Town as "our best league performance of the season".

A Dan Jarvis hat-trick led the way for the Clarets whose other goals were scored by Jack Gurney, Scott Mooney and an own goal after a free kick.

The win moves Deeping into fourth place, with a game in hand on second-placed Loughborough University who are three points ahead.

Goode said: "We've had an up-and-down start to the season, with some good performances like the one a week earlier against Shepshed Dynamo where we didn't take our chances.

"But we did really well at Wellingborough, level on points with us before the game, and it was our best performance of the season so far.

"We played in a slightly different way to the Shepshed game, but took as many of the chances made as we could.

"It was just a good all-round game of football where we were totally dominant and we could have been four of five up at half-time.

"Of the two goals they scored, one was an own goal and the other was a decent finish.

"But I thought that we rallied around, with a really good balance about is, and we went back to playing Dan Jarvis in a front three.

"Dan is a good player who we've sent out in so many different positions to try and get the right performance out of him.

Scott Mooney also played really well on what was a good surface, but one which was wet and sticky."

Deeping had a chance to open the scoring early with a one-on-one chance that was put wide.

But once the Doughboys conceded the first goal, they came under a barrage of attacks from Goode's side, with Jarvis netting his first after a turnover by the home side.

Jarvis got his second when a deep cross was played back to him to finish, with Gurney scoring early in the second half after the home keeper's poor clearance.

Wellingborough pulled a goal back before Mooney made it 5-1 off a ricochet, only for the home side to grab another goal.

But Jarvis made it 6-2 with a shot from outside the box when the ball was laid off to him.
