They really are daring to dream down at Clarence Park – after a 2-1 win over Concord Rangers in the Vanarama National League South.

A goal in the 89th minute by Louie Theophanous made it three wins from three for the Saints and lifted them above Weston-super-Mare at the foot of the table.

Ben Martin had earlier cancelled out a Steve King goal with a first-half header.

Saints had plenty of possession throughout the second half with Harry Anderson and Charlie MacDonald going close.

They got the ball in the net with just eight minutes to go but it was ruled out.
