HE bagged two goals, was the best player on view and impressed a former assistant manager of the England team, writes Dave Wright.

But Liam Ferdinand was still left feeling somewhat frustrated following Bracknell Town’s 2-1 win at Molesey on Saturday as he knew he should have scored another two or three more goals.

Leading a Robins attack which created chance after chance, his forceful running, moving into the right positions to make space for himself, caused all sorts of problems for the Molesey defence Town had close to 20 scoring opportunities, managing to take just two – one in each half.

Player-manager Carl Davies emerged from the dressing room to say: “Ferdy scored two and is sitting there unhappy.

“But it just wasn’t him who was guilty, you could name four other players who should have scored.

“I would have been annoyed had we won only 4-1 as we had enough chances to have won three games, so an improvement is needed in that department.

“We can’t miss that amount of chances every week and expect to get a result still, we all know that.

“We have taken all three points and that’s the main thing, but we really made hard work of it.”

Bracknell largely dominated a game against a Molesey side skippered by Craig Lewington.

And it was watched by his father, Ray Lewington, the former England No. 2 who now fills a similar role alongside Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson.

With Palace not playing until Monday, Lewington senior was among the small crowd of 65 – nearly a third from Bracknell – at the Surrey club’s ground.

He commented: “I thought Bracknell were always slightly the better of the two sides and deserved to win.

“They were a good all-round side. Their No. 10 (Ferdinand) was a good player. Both teams had lots of chances and it was a pretty decent game.”

The fact the Moles did go close a few times in addition to getting a second-half goal shows Town did not have things all their own way and they were not as solid in defence as they had been the previous week when defeating Waltham Abbey 1-0.

“It was a disappointing goal to concede,” admitted Davies.

“Speaking on behalf of the back five, we are also guilty ourselves of wrongdoings.

“So there is still room for improvement and we have something to work on in training, but we showed good character to see the game out and we are now two out of two.”

The Bostik League newcomers are just one of only three sides to have won both their opening South Central Division fixtures, Hanworth and Northwood being the others.

But they will certainly come up against stronger opposition than Molesey, who the previous week had crashed 3-0 at Marlow.

Davies had spoken to Marlow manager Mark Bartley during the week and he will be looking elsewhere this week to get some info on FC Romania, who are the visitors to Larges Lane next Monday (3pm).

“At the moment they are an unknown entity, but I will try to find a bit about them and do some homework as we want another three points,” added Davies.
