Farnham Town manager Paul Johnson has told his side to remain focused as the league champions target an undefeated season in the Combined Counties Premier Division South.

Town won 3-1 at Abbey Rangers on Saturday to make it 28 wins and two draws in the league this season – and extend their unbeaten run in league football to 40 games.

Johnson’s side took the lead on 37 minutes with their 100th league goal this season, when Abbey keeper Jack Carrod punched a Harry Cooksley corner into his own net.

Charlie Postance doubled Farnham’s lead on 58 minutes with a well-taken finish into the bottom corner against his former side.

Luke Robertson pulled a goal back for the hosts on 71 minutes, but Dean Rule restored Farnham’s two-goal lead on 82 minutes with a first-time finish.

“We need to remain focused for every game,” said Johnson. “It was a strange game against Abbey as it felt a bit like a pre-season game at the start, but we then stepped it up and were comfortable. Abbey didn’t offer a lot, which was surprising.

“Charlie was getting a bit of stick against his old club, but he took his goal well. Dean has really come into his own since Darryl Sanders got his injury. We told him he needed to step up, and he has.”

Kai Tanner – who had to fill in at left-back because of a number of injuries – was named Farnham’s player-of-the-match, and Johnson was pleased with his performance.

“We’re a bit light in defence at the moment as we’ve got a lot of injuries, but Kai was excellent,” said Johnson. “He was a real threat down the left wing.”

Alton manager Kevin Adair was delighted with his side’s efforts after they picked up two wins over the Easter weekend to boost their Combined Counties Premier Division South play-off hopes.

The Brewers won 5-0 at home to Tooting & Mitcham United on Saturday, before winning 1-0 at Tadley Calleva on Easter Monday.

Alton were quick out of the blocks against Tooting & Mitcham and were 3-0 up after 22 minutes thanks to goals from Owen Tanner, Darnell McDonald and Scott Sanderson. Substitutes Luke Perkins and Owen Lumsden scored late on to seal the win.

The Brewers also started quickly at Tadley, taking the lead after eight minutes through Jack Fowler. Alton had chances to extend their lead, before keeper Toby Fisher made a vital close-range block late on to preserve the three points.

The two wins moved Alton into fourth place in the Combined Counties Premier Division South and back into the play-off spots.

“We’re in a good place at the minute and are right in the mix for the play-offs with five games left,” said Adair. “The group are delivering technically, physically and mentally – which is all you can ask for.

“When we first got in the play-offs we maybe started looking too far ahead of ourselves. We’ve now gone back to concentrating on the next game, and it’s working well for us.”
