Francomb's stunning strike helped his side pick up their first away win since they beat Leyton Orient 3-2 in August last year.

And the skipper knew it was a special goal. He said: "It weren't bad that was it?! Nadders [Ashley Nadesan] set it off to Nathan [Ferguson] and it missed him, it just came to me and, well, pick that that one out."

Nadesan and Tom Nichols were the other scorers in the victory.

Francomb said: "It was a tough fought win, as every away win is in this league. We made it hard for ourselves in the last ten minutes with a sucker punch goal from them, but up until then, and especially when we got our third goal, the confidence was oozing and I felt we could have gone on and scored more. We didn't but three points is three points.

"We are not the finished article, we can definitely play better across all three games, but the fact we have won two of the three and won matches when we are not at our best is very encouraging."

And Francomb was pleased to get an away win. He said: "There have not been many, the last one was Orient more than a year ago and that's poor. It's something we have identified and tried to improve on. Towards the end of last season we picked up a few draws but it's nice to pick up three points."
