Ayo Obileye had a smile about a mile wide walking off the pitch following Maidenhead United’s 2-0 win over his old club Eastleigh on Tuesday, the Maidenhead Advertiser report.

It was the defender’s hurried clearance which mistakenly let in George Porter for Bromley’s late leveller in the 2-2 draw at York Road on Saturday, but the man mountain of a centre half made up for it with a committed display against his former club.

At times he still looks a little shaky, and he was fortunate Mark Yeates didn’t put the Spitfires in front in the first half after his panicky clearance presented the striker with a chance. But he put his body in the line of fire in the second half to block and repel the best the visitors had to offer.

The new boy in the back four also believes he’s starting to develop a better understanding with his teammates.

“I’m a new player in the team,” he said. “Some of the other boys have been here for a couple of years. But yeah, I’m getting to know them well.

“Every game and training session, you get to know them a bit better. We’re unbeaten in four games now so hopefully we’ll keep that going.

“We’re confident against any team and just have to keep working hard. If we keep our team spirit you never know what might happen.”
