‘MORE performances like that and we’ll have a chance of promotion’.
That was the message from Supermarine boss Dave Webb after watching his side demolish Bridgwater 4-0 in Division One South & West on Saturday.
The Supermarine side were full value for their biggest away win of 2012/13 with Josh Parsons opening the scoring after 17 minutes when the home keeper was down injured.
Ash Edenborough doubled the lead soon after with a header and visiting stopper Kent Kauppinen did not have a save of note to make until moments into the second half, while Swindon Town loanee Chris Smith cleared off the line.
Craig Curtis nodded in Marine’s third just short of the hour before Jamie Prictor rounded off the win with two minutes to play.
“It was a really good result for us and the overall performance was great,” said Webb.
“We passed the ball really well and kept a clean sheet, which is something we’ve struggled to do, but we defended well.
“Bridgwater had their opportunities but they missed them, and we took ours at crucial times in the game.
“It was nice to go away from home and come away with a 4-0 win. Everyone all over the field was at least an eight out of 10 and some were better than that.
“Most pleasing was the way the players played, they looked like they enjoyed it, it was probably the best we’ve played this season.
“When we’re good we’re good, and when we’re not so good we lose. We’ve got to show some consistency and get a run of results.
“I’m not saying we’re going to win the league but we should be trying to get up to the top six.
“That’s our target for Christmas and if we keep playing like we did on Saturday then we’ll have the opportunity to do that.
“You’ve got to think we’ve got an opportunity of promotion, but no one said it was going to be easy.
“We’ve shown in a small part of the season that we're more than capable, it’s whether we get consistent performances like we did on Saturday.”
Elsewhere, Cirencester got their play-off push back on track with a well-earned 2-1 victory at home to Taunton.
The Centurions, without a win in three league games, took the lead after 27 minutes through Matt Sysum.
Scott Griffin extended the lead with three minutes to play of the second period, before Simon Ingram bagged a consolation in the third minute of injury time.
