CHRIS Beardsley is looking to 'crack on' after netting his first goal for the club in Wednesday night's 2-1 win over Chelmsford City.

The former Kettering striker came off the bench to net the winner in the 83rd minute and admitted he was just pleased to put away the chance when it came his way.

"It's nice to get it (the first goal) out of the way and done with. It was pleasing to win and pleasing to get on the pitch.

"It got to the stage were it got a bit scrappy in the last half an hour. You're trying to get involved in the game and sometimes the constant substitutions disrupt the flow but I'm just pleased to get a chance a put it away."
