CHALFONT St Peter boss Danny Edwards told his players performing consistently for 90 minutes will bring them rewards, as they put in their best display of the season to beat Bucks rivals Marlow 4-1.

Saints' young team have only played in fits and starts this season, with Edwards saying Saturday's 1-1 draw with Uxbridge was a case in point.

What impressed him about Tuesday's victory at Marlow was playing consistently well throughout the entire game, as they netted two goals in each half to secure their biggest win of the campaign.

Edwards said: "The boys have been playing well for a period of time. We played very well on a difficult surface against a very good Marlow team. Performances haven't turned into results and we've not scored as many as we could recently.

"Against Uxbridge we played fantastically for 45 minutes and could have been two or three up, and that's been the case throughout much of the season. We've put in good halves but we wanted to put in a consistent 90. Second half against Marlow we started in the same vein with the passion and determination of the first half.

"We've got a young team and they're inexperienced, and that shows sometimes in the decision making. We've worked on it and they've taken on board what the coaching staff have told them and stuck to the game plan."

Scott Fitzgerald has made a welcome return to goalscoring form as he scored his second goal in a week to level the scores at Oak Tree Road.

Edwards said: "Scott's a big player for us. He's far and away our top scorer and he's great in the changing room as one of the senior players. He's one of the reasons behind the good performances."

Jon Bennett had put Marlow in front but within six minutes Chalfont had turned the game on its head thanks to goals from Fitzgerald and Remmel Clarke.

Romaine Walker and Terrell Lewis then wrapped things up after the break as Saints extended their unbeaten run to four matches.

Weather permitting, Saints go to Chertsey next.
