JOHN Coventry admits East Thurrock United still have plenty to work on despite Saturday’s last gasp win against Hungerford Town.

The Rocks boss was mobbed by Steve Sheehan after his injury-time winner in the National League South, shortly after Roman Michael-Percil had levelled the scores.

And Coventry says it was an important result.

“We worked hard in the week and you want that to show in the game,” he said. “We were very good in the first 15 minutes and then we lost a bit of confidence and between 15 and 90 minutes we were not good. We didn’t have the belief we could get back in the game.

“What pleased me was not that Steve got the winner - although that was good - but he was the person that put his foot on the ball in the 90th and passed through the lines. We scored from it and it was a great way to finish.

“The players must recognise why we started well and what got us back into the game. The stuff in between will get us relegated. We are good enough not to be relegated.”

Coventry also praised former player and Town goalscorer Danilo Orsi-Dadomo.

“Danilo is a lovely lad and a very good finisher. Our side is not good enough to accommodate him. We play one up front and he won’t get into the team ahead of Sam Higgins. But I was pleased for him.”
