Chichester stick to principles

Chichester City will stick by their principles after getting back to winning ways says coach Darin Killpartrick.


Chi secured an impressive 3-0 victory at VCD Athletic on Tuesday night as they bounced back from Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Faversham Town in BetVictor South East.


The margin of victory on Tuesday, when Kaleem Haitham, Iordache Gicu and Josh Clack got the goals, could have been even more says Killpartrick, who felt the manner of victory was the most important factor.


He said: “We got back to our playing style which we have been trying to develop.


“We showed our identity on Tuesday and went back to our philosophy and what we have been trying to do.


“I blame myself a little bit as we have come away from it over the past weeks on the heavier pitches but the VCD surface was good and we got into the passing patterns that we have worked on, so I was delighted.”


He added: “No disrespect to them, but no-one would have complained if it had been five or six goals but the most important thing was the process. The outcome was what we wanted but the way we played pleased me the most.


“After the FA Cup that’s the first sign of us getting back on the right track.”


Chi lost 2-1 away to Faversham Town after substitute Osman Proni grabbed an 85th-minute winner in the previous game.


Solomon Taiwo had scored direct from a corner to put the Kent side ahead in the 56th minute. Chi levelled on the hour through new signing from Pagham Ryan Davidson.


Chi finished with ten men after Rob Hutchings was sent off after picking up a second caution in stoppage time.


Whitstable Town visit Oaklands Park tomorrow in the league.
