PAUK Hurst thought that his side deserved the victory at the Silverlake Stadium this afternoon.
He said: “Delighted. We've come up against the form team really. To come here and play how we did and give us a thoroughly deserved victory.
“Overall I thought we were very professional today. The pitch was good but cut up, obviously they've had a lot of rain, but it wasn't easy to play total passing football.
“It's a one-nil victory, it's a classic away performance, you could say.
“I don't think James McKeown has had too much to do, other than, first half, when Green got down the outside and put a good ball in, and the free-kick which hit the crossbar.”
What does this do for his side now?
“It closes that gap. Eastleigh have got a game in hand, let's not forget that, and I expect them to be there at the end of the season. We want to be there.
“I was just conscious today that we go into one last league game next week, which signifies the halfway point, in terms of the league campaign. Then we've got a break with us both in the cups.
“I'm delighted with today but I want to build on that next week,” he added.
