Stones best Weston-super-Mare 2-1 on Saturday for their eighth home league success of the season

Abo Eisa believes if Wealdstone can maintain their good form at home, they have every chance of making the play-offs in the National League South.

The Stones forward scored the second goal for the west Londoners in a 2-1 win at home to Weston-super-Mare on Saturday.

It was an eighth league success at Grosvenor Vale this term for Bobby Wilkinson’s men, who boast the fourth-best home record in the division.

And Eisa believes if Wealdstone can maintain that form over the course of the rest of the campaign, they have every chance of finishing in the top seven.

“I’m very pleased with the performance. We’ve been playing really well the last couple of games and it’s good to keep it going,” he told the club website.

“We’ve got a lot of home games coming up and if we win them, we could be in the play-offs.

“We’re capable of doing that. It’s good to get goals and hopefully I can keep it going.”

Eisa’s goal for Wealdstone was one that will certainly live long in the memory for anyone present to witness it.

Collecting the ball well inside his own half, the attacker, who is said to be attacting interesting from Football League clubs, beat several defenders before netting.

It was a fine effort from Eisa, and it is probably best to leave describing the goal in greater detail to the man himself.

“I got it on the left, it was a quick throw by ‘Northy’. I thought ‘Pratty’ was going to run, but he wasn’t there so I just went along,” he added.

“I nutmegged one defender, I chopped another defender and it just opened up. I was excited and took the shot – I had to!”
