Player-manager Ian Dunn feels Pinchbeck United have “clicked into gear” with six successive wins.

Their rise up the Premier Division table continued with a 2-1 home win over reigning champions Moulton Harrox in a rearranged game last weekend.

Tom Panton struck twice against his former club and substitute Corban Oldham’s stoppage-time penalty came too late to prevent a second consecutive defeat.

Dunn said: “Everyone is available now, we are playing well, we’ve won six on the bounce and it seems that we have clicked into gear.

“On our day, we know that we are capable of beating anyone in this league.

“We are working hard and playing with confidence so it’s looking good for us.

“Ollie Maltby and Panton have been scoring goals and Tony Edwards is back from his suspension as well.

“I felt Moulton had more chances in the first half when we only created a couple of openings and didn’t play particularly well.

“The game was pretty even in terms of possession but they looked dangerous from set-pieces.

“To be honest, at 0-0 we were quite happy to be still in the game.

“We made some positive changes for the second half with the way we played and we altered the system a bit.

“It worked as we went 2-0 up and became dominant.

“The first goal was a lovely move with one-touch passing and Panton scored inside the near post to put us ahead.

“His second goal was a good finish from the edge of the penalty area and then we just dealt with everything Moulton threw at us.

“I felt it was a soft penalty in the third minute added on but after that we only had to defend one long throw-in.

“In the end it was all about taking our chances.

“On Saturday we are back home against Wisbech Town Reserves who we know a little bit about.

“We’ve had reports and they have made a decent start to the season as well.”
