Five star Carshalton march on

Carshalton Athletic’s recent good form continued last weekend as the club progressed in the FA Cup.

Jackie's James Barrett-Sterling has the following report.

The Robins visited in-form Bracknell Town last Saturday and beat them 2-0 in the first qualifying round of the world’s premier cup competition.

That victory has set up a clash with Harrow Borough in the next round, while Carshalton next host a mouth-watering league encounter with AFC Hornchurch this weekend.

And defender Danny Dudley believes the club's current run of five wins in a row leaves it in an ascendancy.

“It’s always good to have a cup run, as we found out in the FA Trophy last season, so hopefully this win will spur us on and we’d like to get as far as we can in the competition,” said Dudley.

“The season is in full swing now and we feel like we are moving towards where we want to be, we just have to keep doing what we are doing."

It was a competitive match in Bracknell but Carshalton struck once in each half to inflict only the hosts’ second defeat of the season.

Christie Pattisson tucked in from close range to put the Robins one-up by half-time and, after soaking up some pressure from the hosts after the break, Omar Koroma sealed victory with his fourth goal of the season.

Bracknell’s disappointing afternoon was compounded eight minutes from time as Dan Bayliss was shown a straight red card for hauling down Levi Phillips as the winger burst through on goal.

“We knew Bracknell are a good side, one of the favourites to win their league, but we didn’t expect them to sit off us so much in the first-half,” added Dudley.

“We dictated the start of the game, got our goal and we then exploited the gaps they left at the back during the second-half. Their keeper did well to keep the score down to be honest.

“Every team we play will have a spell on the front foot and we just have to make sure we don’t concede. In the end, it was very pleasing to win and keep a third clean sheet in a row.”

And the big games keep coming for Carshalton as they host third-placed AFC Hornchurch this weekend, a club that has only lost one of their opening six league games and conceded just one goal in their last five matches.

But a win for Carshalton would see them leapfrog their opponents as the early Isthmian Premier pacesetters jostle to sit on top of the pile.

Carshalton Athletic vs AFC Hornchurch is on Saturday, KO 3pm.

* The draw for the preliminary round of the Surrey Senior Cup was made recently and Carshalton Athletic will travel to Chertsey Town. Date TBC.
