Badshot Lea manager Gavin Smith saw room for improvement from his side after Saturday’s 3-1 win at bottom side Corinthian Casuals in the Isthmian League South Central Division.

After a goalless first half, the Baggies took the lead from the penalty spot in the 52nd minute. Lamin Ceesay was brought down in the penalty area and Kareem Akinnibi tucked away the resulting spot kick.

The visitors doubled their advantage on 66 minutes with another penalty. Salhin Abubakar was fouled in the box and Ceesay slotted home from the penalty spot.

Aderi Arthur-Dede pulled a goal back for the home side on 79 minutes, but Tane Caubo sealed the three points for the visitors on 90 minutes when he drove forward and slotted past the home keeper.

The win made it back-to-back victories for the Baggies in the Isthmian League South Central Division, following Thursday night’s 3-1 victory at Ashford Town, but Smith felt his side could have played better.

“It was a strange game,” said Smith. “I was expecting a bit more from Corinthian Casuals – with them being at the bottom of the league I thought it would be a real battle.

“We were comfortable in the first half without being ruthless. At half-time I said the game was there to be won but we needed to be more ruthless. We then scored the two penalties and were in control. Corinthian pulled the goal back and put balls into our box, but Tane got the third to seal the win.”

The Baggies will continue their defence of the Aldershot Senior Cup with a quarter-final tie at home to Guildford City on Thursday night (7.45pm).

Smith’s side then host fifth-placed Southall in the Isthmian League South Central Division on Saturday (3pm), before hosting second-bottom Binfield next Tuesday night (April 2).
