Reflecting upon today’ 4-1 victory against Lowestoft Town - in which John Sands netted twice, Lewis Hilliard converted a penalty and Mark Jones wrapped things up as United came from behind to finish the day fourth in the National League North - Greene believes the result was deserved.

“I thought it was really good, we created chances all game,” he said.

“We gave away a sloppy goal but we were always a threat in the game.

“Sandsy could have got a couple in the first half, but he’s gopt a couple in the end.”

Lowestoft were left fuming at United’s second, a Sands header from a corner, believing the forward’s initial effort spun wide without hitting a defender.

“I said to their dugout, when sands hit the shot he turned away to defend the next sutuation, so that tells me that wasn’t a deflection,” Greene continued.

“They’ve been punished for it, it was unfortunate for them.”

However, Greene was adamant that the penalty, awarded for a foul on Jay Rollins, was the right decision.

He continued: “I think so. He’s played it into space and the fella’s gone to make the tackle and not got the ball, there’s only one thing you can give there.”
