Leatherhead manager Richard Brady says their recent good form is down to being able to select his top 11 players.

Back-to-back wictories at Walton Casuals and at home over Herne Bay in Ryman Division One South have been tempered slightly by a 1-0 home defeat to title favourites Maidstone United.

However, Brady says his charges deserved more from the Maidstone game, proving just how well he believes the team is playing.

"As far as anyone outside the ground knows, we lost 1-0 to Maidstone. But those inside will know that Madistone were extremely lucky to get away with a 1-0 win," Brady said.

"We were really unlucky not to get level and to even win the game. We were not helped when we lost Tommy [Hutchings] in the first half, and he is our main goal threat."

"I can only ask my players to put in a performance when they go on the pitch and they have been giving me that."

Leatherhead won only once in five attempts in November, but Brady is loving having a settled side now.

"It helps when you can put out your top 11 players, and we have a quality goalkeeper in Louis Wells which has given us some stability at the back."

Leatherhead travel to Three Bridges on Saturday, looking to return to winning ways.
