Dulwich Hamlet manager Wayne Burnett was not overdoing the celebrations after his side made it through to the first qualifying round of the FA Cup with a 3-0 win at home to Three Bridges.

The result was welcome after Dulwich's slow start to their Ryman League Division One South campaign, but Burnett was not impressed with his side's performance.

"It's strange because up to this match I have been happy with our performances but not the results," said Burnett.

"This game was the complete opposite.

"We didn't play half as well as we have been doing, but we got the result. I guess that is all that matters in the FA Cup."

While Burnett was critical of the team performance, he did reserve praise for striker Chris Dickson, who opened the scoring in the first half.

While strike partner Luke Cornwall and defender Jamie Coyle added goals in the second half, Burnett was most impressed with Dickson's contribution.

"Chris has scored five in five games, but he knows he could have doubled that," said Burnett.

"That has been our problem in the league so far this season.

"We have been creating chances but not killing teams off.

"We are on five points, but should have at least nine.

"Chris has probably spurned the most chances, but on Saturday I thought his all-round display was excellent.

"He put in a much better performance and was clinical when he got the chance.

"A few more performances like that and I am confident we will turn the corner."

Dulwich Hamlet's Dickson-inspired victory booked them a trip to Ryman Premier League strugglers Walton & Hersham in the next round, which will be played on Saturday, September 16.

Dulwich will also travel to Walton this Saturday, to play Walton Casuals in the league.

"They have started well, so it will be a difficult game," said Burnett.

"It looks to me like they are a decent passing side so we will have to go there and keep possession to get a result."

Coyle is doubtful for Saturday after picking up a badly bruised shin against Three Bridges.

Striker Serge Msungu, who has been out for the last two weeks with a niggling knee injury, has been ruled out.
