Darran Foster says the hard work starts now for Daventry Town after they hit the top of the Calor League Division One Central table on Tuesday night.

Foster’s men demolished Potters Bar 5-0 at Communications Park in midweek and are now a point clear with two games in hand on their title-chasing rivals.

Tuesday’s win was secured thanks to two goals apiece for Adam Confue and Scott Cross, as well as a single for Josh O’Grady, with Daventry’s cause being helped when the visitors had a man dismissed with the score at 2-0.

Things couldn’t look much rosier for the Purple Army with just five matches of the season remaining, but with those five games all being played in the space of just 10 days - starting tonight against AFC Hayes - manager Foster is keen to point out there is still plenty to be done before the champagne corks can be popped.

“We are is really good form at the moment, just at the right time,” admitted Foster.

“I thought we dominated the match on Tuesday from start to finish, with some really good goals from Scott, Adam and Josh.

“That is now six wins on the bounce, having scored 
12 goals in the last three matches and having conceded just two.

“It is very nice feeling being top of the league, but now the hard work starts. It’s all well good getting there but now we must stay there.

“Tuesday night saw a superb performance and a bundle of goals, and I could not fault any of the team.”

Following tonight’s trip to Hayes, Daventry host Royston on Saturday, travel to Kettering on Monday, Egham on Wednesday before finishing their season at home to Chalfont St Peter next Saturday (April 26).
