‘We did enough to beat Carshalton,” Maggs says after lively draw

HORNETS boss John Maggs was pleased with the performance of his team in the 0-0 draw at Carshalton Athletic but thought they did enough to warrant a win.

Home stopper Craig Ross denied Gary Charman with a fine save in the first half and after the break Pat Harding had a good penalty shout turned down and Billy Dunn struck the crossbar.

Carshalton also had their chances but found visiting keeper Mark Zawadski in fine form as it ended goalless to stretch Horsham’s unbeaten record at Colston Avenue to six games.

“It was a decent match, there was plenty of excitement and I think we did enough to get three points.

“Unfortunately we didn’t but all credit to the lads because they put in a good shift. We rattled the bar and their goalkeeper made a couple of good saves but it was a good performance by everyone.

“The last three games we have definitely stepped it up and it’s been encouraging. Both the Margate and Bury games, and although we’ve only picked up the one point again we’re playing much better.”

With all the bottom sides not playing because of the rain the draw extends Horsham’s cushion above the relegation places to ten points.
