Consistency is the key for St Albans City and manager Ian Allinson will settle for “a scrappy 1-0 win” when the Saints head to Hungerford Town on Saturday – if it means keeping their winning run going.

High-scoring victories over East Thurrock United and Dartford have transformed the mood inside clarence Park and catapulted Saints into the Vanarama National League South play-off places.

But all that will be wasted if they lose at struggling Hungerford.

Allinson said: “We keep talking about consistency and that’s the thing we have to make the players aware of.

“We know it’ll be a slightly different game. The pitch is poor down there and we know we won’t be able to play in the style we want to play.

“You’re not going to get performances like we’ve had for the last two weeks because teams are not going to allow you to play like that.

“A scrappy 1-0 win will be just as important as a 4-0 win against Dartford.”
