Farnham Town manager Paul Johnson was delighted with his side’s performance after they beat Redhill 3-0 at The Memorial Ground on Tuesday night to move to within four points of the Combined Counties Premier Division South title.

Goals from Harry Cooksley and Owen Dean (2) sealed an emphatic win for Town in front of a crowd of 236.

Farnham could seal the title with a win at third-placed Jersey Bulls on Saturday, if second-placed Knaphill drop points against Balham. A draw would be enough for Farnham if Knaphill lose.

"The title is almost there – we're close,” said Johnson.

"It would be great to wrap it up if we can at Jersey. It's going to be a stiff test on the 3G with the home supporters there.

“It should be a packed stadium, but it’s one we've got to relish like we have done all season. We go there full of confidence and hopefully Balham can do something at Knaphill and we get it done.”

Johnson was particularly pleased with his side’s display against Redhill as they moved three points closer to the title.

"I thought it was a good, solid performance,” said Johnson.

“I thought there were two teams – one wanted to play football and one wanted to kick lumps out of the other – and football won. I didn't see the point in it – if that was their gameplan to come and try to lump us off the pitch it went horribly wrong. They got it wrong big time, but we're happy.

“We scored some good goals along the way and played some good football as well. I thought the boys moved the ball really well.

“Redhill worked their socks off for half an hour to 45 minutes, but they were gone in the second half and it was about managing it, coming away with no injuries and looking forward to Saturday.

"It's been like that all season with teams. They tried going man-for-man and tried to work a section of the pitch but we were too good on the ball. We were patient. We had a couple of chances prior to scoring – a couple of set pieces looked dangerous.

“Harry slipped his man for the first goal and it was a great finish. Owen's a young lad and he's full of confidence at the moment.

"We had so many options off the bench up top and tried to keep Owen on for his hat-trick, but we wanted to give boys minutes on the pitch. Owen did his job. He knows that and he's happy – he's in a good place.”

At 3-0 up Johnson had the chance to freshen the team up, with Adam Liddle, Charlie Postance, Shamal Edwards and Kai Tanner all coming on off the bench.

"Charlie's not had much of a run at the moment but I'm sure his time will come and he's been excellent with his attitude,” said Johnson.

“The same with Shamal. I think he's beating himself up a little bit and he needs one of them to go in. He almost had a tap in at the end.

“We've left Adam out of the past couple to freshen him up – he had a little niggle in his hamstring. He looked lively and will be ready to go on Saturday. We'll prepare right and look forward to Saturday."
