Badshot Lea manager Gavin Smith was pleased with his side's efforts after they beat Ashford Town 3-0 at Westfield Lane in the Isthmian League South Central Division on Tuesday night.

The Baggies took the lead in the 51st minute when Cam Rohart-Brown's driven cross was smashed home by Tane Caubo.

The home side doubled their advantage in the 58th minute when Harvey Griffiths' cross was well finished by Lamin Ceesay at the near post.

Rohart-Brown completed the scoring on 90 minutes when he tapped home from Kane Fitzgerald's cross.

Baggies boss Smith was happy enough with his side, although he did see some room for improvement.

"We expected a little bit more in the first half," said Smith. "We probably should have scored. We got in some good areas without really testing the keeper that much. We were getting in good positions and playing how we want to play, but it was that final bit that was missing.

"I felt we were a little bit casual at times, and at this level if you lose the ball you are punished. We were lucky that didn't happen.

"At half-time we talked about where we need to improve and what we need to do to win the game.

"In the second half I was pleased with the goals – they were excellent, especially the first two. It was exactly what we want to be doing – getting in behind and putting balls across the box.

"The balls in had good pace on them and people made the right runs. Anuar Ceesay could have probably had two tap-ins in the first half if he had made the right runs. That is something we struggled with last year – Dean Rule used to hang out the back but you need to be getting across and tapping stuff in.

"At 2-0 the lads have got to realise they've got to manage the game – you don't need to carry on doing the same things. They get a little bit like the Harlem Globetrotters and think it's all about looking good – which is good because they've got the ability to do it – but if you muck up and they score you're putting them right back in a game that they're not in at 2-0.

"Being 2-0 up with 20 minutes left I'd expect us to see a game out at home and be a little bit more disciplined. I don't feel we've got that at the minute because the lads want to look good rather than thinking about the result – which we need to get into them.

"I'm not saying they don't want to win – but we made a few changes that we felt were right to get people who are probably more defensively minded and not as flamboyant on. Ashford had a little bit of pressure but we were trying to see the game out without going for more – so that invites them on sometimes. It's a hard balance to strike but I'm pleased we got three points at home.

"There are always things to work on. I was pleased because there were some performances that weren't great in the first half, but people picked up in the second half. I thought Anuar didn't have a great game in the first half but he played better in the second half.

"Tane did well making his first start for a while, and it was good for him to get a goal. I'm pleased for him. He worked hard, but maybe did a little bit too much work doing other people's work.

"I'm really pleased with the result, it's good to get three points and keep our unbeaten run going.

"We've got tough games coming up now, so that will be interesting. There is no pressure on us – they are the teams who are expected to do well. In the past three games the opposition have sat in and let us have the ball, and it does become a little bit too comfortable. In your mind you've got to be really switched on to get the ball and play it quickly."

Next up for the Baggies is a home game against Marlow in the Isthmian League South Central Division on Saturday (3pm).

To commemorate Remembrance Day, a special matchday programme will be handed out free to every paying adult and concession at the turnstile.

The magazine pays tribute to those that fell in the village, and includes an article on war-time football, an in-depth look at the Football League and international players who have played for Marlow and a half-time quiz.

There will also be a bugler in attendance to mark the minute's silence before kick-off.
