Reaction from Deeping Rangers assistant manager Jack Marsden as Clarets defeat Pinchbeck United
Assistant manager Jack Marsden felt a deserved derby victory and an all-important clean sheet made for a good night's work from Deeping Rangers' players on Tuesday evening.
The Clarets moved into second spot in the United Counties League Premier Division standings after a comfortable 3-0 home success over Pinchbeck United.
First half goals from David Burton-Jones, Sam Murphy and Scott Mooney set Rangers on their way to a fifth win from their last six league games.
And, although slightly critical that his side didn't add to their dominance of the derby duel, Marsden was satisfied with the return.
He said: "We've got to be pleased with a much-deserved three points and a clean sheet.
"The clean sheets have been a long time coming. It's something we have wanted for a long period of time so, first and foremost, that's really important.
"It was quite a tough game because the intensity of the match was quite flat. It was stop-start with injuries early on.
"But two really good deliveries from Jack Gurney helped make us a lot more dominate in the penalty area because we haven't done that in recent weeks.
"We played really well in the first half in order to maintain that intensity we wanted to have.
"My only criticism of the team was just maintaining that intensity when the game does start to go flat for whatever reason.
"We want to be dominating games like that all the way through the match. We never looked like we were going to concede and we were in control of the game all the time.
"I felt really comfortable but, in certain areas of the pitch, we need to create that intensity when the game is flat. We enjoyed it though and it was a good win."
Deeping are back in action at the Haydon Whitham Stadium on Saturday when third-placed Loughborough University - who are level on points with the Clarets but have two games in hand - are the visitors (kick-off 3pm).
