Billericay Town boss Craig Edwards: Our front three were unplayable
BILLERICAY Town boss Craig Edwards admitted he was buoyed up by his team’s 2-0 Ryman Premier away victory at Met Police on Tuesday night.
He said: “We’re on a good run at present. Met Police said in their match programme that they were looking at a top five finish.
“Well, we dominated that match and our top three were unplayable as far as I was concerned.”
Isaac Layne got both Billericay’s goals but the rest of Edwards strike force had a hand in the goals too.
Edwards said: “Ricky Sappleton assisted the first goal and Joe Benjamin assisted the second.
“We could have had more too because we hit the woodwork,” he added.
Billericay went down to 10 men for 10 minutes while the team’s physio sought to stem a bad nosebleed for Sappleton.
But once he came back on, Billericay resumed their pressure.
Edwards said that, ironically it was only when Met Police were reduced to 10 men themselves – having had a man sent off – that his Billericay side slackened off.
“We seemed to drop down a peg or two then,” he said.
“I think that we would have had four over five goals without the sending off but we took our foot off the gas and our players relaxed a little.”
