HEREFORD Lads Club manager Danny Moon felt his side should have finished the game in the first half after a 3-1 win against Lydney.

Two James Hancocks goals in a dominant first half for Lads Club gave them a comfortable lead before Morgan Pratt headed home for the visitors in reply.

A strike worthy of winning any game from Levi Ellis secured the win despite late Lydney pressure.

“Any win is good but if anybody saw us Saturday we should have been the same,” said Moon.

“I don’t know how many shots we’ve had today and the first half the game should have been finished.

“I thought we were superb in the first half and the first 20 minutes (of the second half) but we then dropped off and allowed pressure to come on.

“We’ve got to learn to finish games off which we have done in the past.”

In their first season in the Hellenic Premier the win moved Lads Club up to 10th with 23 points from 17 games.

Moon says the first target is to secure their safety for another season.

“In my head I’m thinking let’s get to 35 points and then we’ll be safe and what an achievement to be in the league where we have come from,” added Moon.

“I think we’ve got 22 points now so let’s see where they get from there. I think anybody can beat anybody.

“When you think that we hardly picked any points up in August and September we’ve had a great month and a half.

“It’s about performances and integrating players to play at this standard week in and week out and about consistency.

“When we look at It and stand away from game we’ve not been a million miles away in the games that we’ve lost.

“It’s fine margins, making mistakes and being punished. If we learn from that we can do anything this season.
