Skipper Brian Stock insists Havant & Waterlooville can use their dramatic first Vanarama National League win to spark a charge up the table, say The (Portsmouth) News.

The Hawks enjoyed a sensational finish to earn a 4-3 win at Braintree Town on Saturday. Lee Bradbury’s side looked to be heading for another defeat when they trailed 3-2 at the end of ninety minutes. In an almost unbelievable finale however the Hawks scored twice to turn the game on its head. Nicke Kabamba and substitute Alfie Rutherford grabbed the goals to leave the Hawks celebrating.

It was so key after the Dover defeat. Then the Hawks had been very unlucky and could have been feeling a bit low. So Stock believes the win came at just the right time.

He said: “It was breathtaking stuff and the exact opposite to what happened to us at Dover the game before. ‘One thing we have always had as a team here is an ability not to stop until right to the end. We showed that again in this game.

“It was unbelievable. Alfie came on and made the vital difference and we are delighted to pick up our first three points from a game.”
