Views from berksimps following Saturday afternoons 3-0 win at St. James’ Park against Exeter City in Sky Bet League Two: “That was good, that was very good. After half an hour we dominated and the remaining part of the first half saw us play some quality football. Two well taken and well-crafted goals provided a 2-0 lead, from which we didn’t look back.

Akinde looks fit and didn’t it show: the boy has quality. Frecklington took his goal well and the skills shown by Andrade, O’Connor and Toffolo at times were sublime.

Accurate, close-knit football within a team ethic second half. Exeter did not know what to do with the ball and completely lost any strategy. We coasted to victory once it became 3-0. And we could have had another couple.

Believe it; this squad is going places.”

More views from the Match Thread:

Huntsward: “That was the best performance of the season thus far. We weren’t as electric as we have been at times in previous matches and didn’t need to be, but we had three great moves and three great goals. Classy and clinical.

We were in complete control and made Exeter, a decent team, look poor. They just could not hurt us. The defence looked more assured and at no point did we look in danger. How do you get Wharton back into that whilst keeping Bostwick in the team without disrupting the midfield?

I’m going to stick my neck on the line here and say that we will not relinquish our current league position.

Oh, and that Andrade pass through to Toffolo for the third was as sweet as it gets. A thing of beauty.”

JT_LCFC: “Fantastic victory and three points. But more pleasing that after our previous two away games, where if truth be told we were fortunate to pick up 4pts from. To come away against one of the better sides in the league and be so comfortable is a testament to all.

Time to pack the bank and fill the Stacey West next week.”
