Wealdstone boss Bobby Wilkinson admits their margin of victory could have been wider after cruising to a 4-0 FA Cup win over Bostik South side Faversham Town.

A first-half double from Danny Green and one apiece for Matty Whichelow and Dan Fitchett ensured their passage into the next round, where they will face a trip to either Colney Heath or Burgess Hill Town.

Wilkinson believed once his side was able to break down a stubborn Faversham side, a comfortable victory was always on the cards for his National League South oufit.

“We could have won by a wider margin as we were unbelievable at times,” he said.

“I was so pleased for the boys with the movement of the ball and the way we played. We played good football against a well-organised side that played five at the back and it took 15-20 minutes to break them down.

“Then there was a bit of magic from ‘Greeny’ that helped us along the way and I was pleased with the result in the end.”

Wilkinson counteracted the Faversham line-up with Alan O’Brien starting on the wing, and praised assistant manager Jamie Leacock for doing all the homework on their Kent opponents.

“I prepared us as the underdogs as I often did at Hungerford and that is why we made the change without Alan O’Brien out wide because we knew they would play very narrow,” he added.

“Jamie Leacock did a lot of hard work in the build-up on them and I will never change that philosophy because it has got me a lot of wins.

“A lot of people deep down think we were the favourites, but you have to earn the right to win the games.”
