Geraint Bater: "We're not getting carried away."
11:38am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in Sport
BRIDGWATER Town player/coach Geraint Bater insists his side are not getting carried away, after the Robins went top of The Calor League One South & West League Table with an impressive 2-0 victory over high-flying Paulton Rovers.
Joe Bushin continued his red-hot goalscoring form with both of Bridgwater's goals in a dominant first half, to take his tally to nine league goals already this season.
Bater, who followed Richard Fey to Fairfax Park at the beginning of the season, was full of praise for his side, but says they are not looking too far ahead.
He said: "You don't win anything in September, but the boys are playing really well at the moment and the atmosphere is great. It's great to see the crowds flocking back to Bridgwater and we are hoping for a big following at the FA Cup game on Saturday.
"We will lose at some point, but at the moment we are just taking each game as it comes.
For Bater, the most pleasing aspect of Tuesday night's win was keeping a clean sheet against a side who have amassed an impressive 30 goals already this season.
He said: "To keep a clean sheet tonight speaks volumes for the performance - I thought our back four were magnificent. They (Paulton) have been scoring goals for fun so far this season, so we're really pleased to keep a clean sheet.
But as well as a clean sheet, Bater was also keen to praise the Robin's goal-machine, Bushin.
He said: "The lad is just a natural finisher - he only needs two chances to score a goal and at this level, it normally takes a player three or four chances.
"He's in great form and he's a good lad to have in the changing rooms, his attitude is spot-on."
Bridgwater Town travel to Bristol Manor Farm on Saturday in the second qualifying round of the FA CUP (KO 3pm).
