CLARENCE Park was rocking on Saturday as the fans got behind the team, and Saints bosses are hoping it will continue.

“The fans were outstanding today,” City joint boss Graham Golds told the Herts Ad after the 1-0 loss to St Neots.

“Some of the lads were getting heavy legs at the end but the atmosphere kept them going and it probably gained us the penalty at the end of the day.

“They were the 12th man.”

With four home games left – one against second placed Hemel Hempstead Town on April 1 – Golds believes 10 points is achievable is the fans cheer on the players like they did against St Neots.

“The fans didn’t stop singing throughout the second half and you could tell it gave the lads an extra 10 per cent against St Neots,” he said.

“If they are like that every week then we can pick up nine or 10 points for sure. I hope they come back for the next home game against AFC Totton (March 16).”
