Solomon Sambou played down his two goals against Weston-super-Mare and said the clean sheet was the most pleasing aspect from St Albans City’s 2-0 win.

The midfielder believes it is the defensive side of the game rather than the goals for that will be crucial in getting a positive outcome to their National League South play-off chase.

He said: “The first and most important thing for us is the clean sheet.

“Everybody is looking for it and that’s two now and two wins in a row. We’ll take that.

“Right now we’re just grafting and trying to get as many wins as we can and see where that takes us.”

Sambou’s second-half brace took his tally for the season up to five and he admitted he could do with scoring more.

He said: “I need to try and shoot form outside the area more often.
