MANAGER Paul Smith said Halesowen’s win over Dunstable was his side’s most professional performance of the season so far.

The Yeltz won 2-0 at the Grove to move into the top five of the Southern Central Division One thanks to second half goals from Robbie Bunn and Ash Parsons.

Smith said: “I think you’ve just got to back the process and when your players are in as much control as that you just have to hope the goals will come.

“We fully deserved them to come and I thought it was one of the most professional performances of the season so far.

“I’ve asked a few questions of the lads just recently, I’ve felt they’ve got a bit comfortable in their surroundings and not pushed themselves, so they have answered me back in bucket loads today. I was very impressed.

“It’s an intimidating place to come, the fans are absolutely fantastic and the roar us on and most side have come here and done that (sat back). It’s just very important that you stay patient, keep believing in what you are doing and don’t get frustrated.

“I couldn’t be more pleased with the boys. I’m quick enough to jump on their backs when they’re bad so it’s very important they get pats on the back today.”

On the debut showing of new forward Simeon Cobourne, 22, Smith added: “He’s a livewire.

“For a young boy he’s got a lot of learning still to do, which is probably the one thing that excites me most.

“He’s not the finished article, yet he’s still very good.

“He’s got loads of pace, he’s a clever footballer and I think he’ll come on leaps and bounds for today.

“We on;ly got him in on Thursday night so to come in and put on that kind of performance was very pleasing.

“I think that could be the beginning of a real good player on our hands.”
