Lee Bradbury insists Havant & Waterlooville are enjoying the pressure of the National League South title race.

The Westleigh Park side underlined their promotion pedigree with a confident 2-1 home win over St Albans City on Saturday. They are neck-and-neck with Dartford at the top – second only by a single strike on goal difference.

The leaders won 1-0 at Eastbourne Borough, while the Hawks failed to take advantage of a hatful of opportunities in their narrow success. Bradbury, however, was impressed with his players – and their willingness to take the attack to their opponents.

“I thought we played well right from the start,’ said the Hawks boss. “We were unfortunate not to take the lead in the opening 10 minutes.

“The missed chances came back to bite us when St Albans scored. But we didn’t let that affect us and we kept our concentration and belief.

“You could see from the beginning that the players are prepared to give it everything they have got. In the position we are in, we have to go for it.

“The players have got themselves where they are because they thrive on the pressure and are enjoying it.”
