SWINDON Supermarine celebrated National Non-League Day in style as they came from 2-1 down to secure their third home win in a row thanks to a 3-2 victory over Farnborough.

The visitors took the lead early on through Andrew Sealy-Harris, but Marine wasted little time in hauling themselves level as talisman Conor McDonagh crashed Lee Spalding’s side level before a quarter of an hour had passed.

Yet no sooner had they equalised, Marine went behind once again as Farnborough nudged themselves in front from the penalty spot.

With Marine 2-1 down at half-time, Spalding sent his players out with a message of confidence in their ears and they duly responded thanks to goals from Harry Williams and a deflected Ryan Campbell effort that won the game for the home side.

Spalding revealed that despite a half-time deficit, he was always confident that there would be goals available for his side.

He said: “We started the game really brightly, but then they scored an early goal. Their two wide players were very lively and caused us a few problems.

“Their second goal was a penalty, which was disappointing to concede, but I felt that we were struggling to cope with their movement out wide and up front.

“Their wide players kept coming inside and they were getting a lot of shots off – we didn’t defend it well enough in the first half.

“Despite being 2-1 down, I felt we were still in the game because their back line was not the best. I felt we could get at them in the second half, and we did.”

Marine’s victory pushed them onto five league games unbeaten and Spalding once again reiterated that his side have been producing good performances, but only in the last week have they been putting their chances away with regularity.

Given their two previous wins, Spalding revealed he told his team at half-time that if they managed an equaliser, a winner was always likely to follow.

He said: “They were five without a win, so you felt if we could get an equaliser, we would be the only team that would go on to win it, and that’s the way it proved.

“We should have won by a lot more if we’re honest.

“Their ‘keeper has made three or four really good saves.

“I was really pleased with the overall performance – I thought we were excellent all over the pitch and we showed really good character to come from 2-1 down and take the win.”
