Chris Robson was full of praise for his Buckingham Town side after they overcame S&L Corby 4-1 to make it back-to-back wins and climb to 14th in UCL Division One.

The Robins produced an impressive performance in front of their biggest crowd of the season so far, although the visitors took a shock lead inside four minutes when Arch Jones-Brown superbly executed an audacious 40-yard lob over goalkeeper Diego Vazquez.

Following that, Buckingham took complete control and displayed some excellent football as they created chances at will before deservedly levelling when Elyas Omar whipped in a cross for Mitch Brent to spectacularly scissor kick into the top corner.

A mixture of poor finishing and good goalkeeping denied Robins until the break, but Buckingham raced away with victory after half-time as Brent set up Dan Dyer to score his first goal for the club.

The Robins continued to play attractive football and they sealed victoryon 85 minutes when Andy Cleere finished well before Brent’s fine solo effort added a late fourth.

Robson said: “I was very pleased with our performance. At times the football we played was brilliant.

“Our passing quality and patience with the ball was great to see. We did what we wanted to do today by pushing on from last week’s win and getting another, so I am very pleased with the lads.

“We scored some superb goals and I was pleased for Mitch and Andy getting on the score sheet as their performances deserved it.”

Buckingham are at Great Linford in the Berks & Bucks County Intermediate Cup this weekend and Robson is hopeful his side can kick-on.

He added: “We have shown in our past two games what we are capable of, and it is so important we continue with this level of performance and bring some consistency to our game if we are to do well this season.

“I have always been confident in my players and our style of play to do well, and I believe if we get that consistency we will do well.”

Robson also praised the support his Buckingham side received, adding: “I would finally like to thank the fans.

“It was a good crowd, probably one of the best for a few years. Hopefully they enjoyed the game and performance and will continue to come down. They gave us a standing ovation at the end which done wonders for the players.

“It makes a big difference when you know you have a crowd behind you supporting you, and now hopefully they have seen what we can do and will want to continue coming down to cheer us on.”
