Bennett's instant impact perks Marlow
JON Bennett has scored ten times in four games since joining Marlow, and they will need him on top of his game in the coming days.
On Saturday they play Southern League South & West leaders North Leigh in the FA Trophy before successive league games against the Central division favourites and leaders – Slough and Dunstable.
Manager Mark Bartley said: “We’ve got a tough run of games now but we won’t roll over and if we can create chances, with Jon in the form he’s in, you never know.”
Bennett, inset, scored four on his debut and followed up with two more in a 5-3 win over Wimborne.
He struck again in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Barton Rovers and then claimed a hat-trick in Marlow’s 4-0 midweek cup victory over Fleet Town.
Bartley said: “He’s a marquee player and is certainly doing the business for us.
“I didn’t think we were doing a lot wrong, we were creating chances but it just wasn’t going in for us.
“We were letting sides off the hook but we seem to have found that spark again and we’re in a decent run of form now.”
