Lee Spalding hailed Supermarine’s “tremendous” performance against Gosport Borough, a win that lifted them right into the Southern Premier South play-off mix.
A stunning strike from Stuart Fleetwood in the 43rd minute proved to be the winner against Gosport as Marine bounced back from Tuesday night’s disappointing home defeat against Thatcham in the FA Trophy.
Spalding urged his side to bounce back from that defeat and was delighted with his players’ reaction against Gosport.
“Delighted with the result, delighted with the performance in very tricky conditions, we dug in and showed some real character,” said Spalding.
“To a man every single player was tremendous today. We wanted a reaction from Tuesday night and I thought we got that today.
“It’s propelled us to just outside the play-offs and where we want to be.”
Looking ahead to the weekend trip to Harrow Borough, Spalding wants a repeat performance as he sets his sights on another three points.
“Same again, at the end of the day we need to go there (Harrow Borough), we need to apply ourselves properly and put in a performance like we did today.”
