Anthony - I've added consistency

Jaidon Anthony continued his strong start to the season in the 2-1 cup win over Portsmouth on Tuesday, and he is now looking maintain his high standards.

Anthony netted both goals to beat Pompey in the Central League Cup clash played at Bognor Regis Town, but knows that keeping his raised level is the big challenge for him over the coming months.

"Consistency was the one thing which I wanted to add to my game this season and I'm scoring some goals, doing well and hopefully that can continue," he told afcb.co.uk after his match-winning performance.

"When you're confident you're going into games thinking you can score and you feel like you can help the team a lot more. Today I was in central midfield - I was also there when I scored against Basingstoke. I enjoyed that and get on the ball a lot more from there. 

"I want to be a player who you can put in multiple positions and be trusted, so it's a good thing for me to be able to learn and play in these positions now so when I make the step up I can do it.

"It's nice to have that trust from your manager, I don't really have goals in terms of numbers but just to continue with goals and helping the team, developing as a player and looking to bridge the gap between here and the first team."

The under-21s tasted success in the competition last season and the attacker says he and his team-mates were looking to lay down a marker at the start of the current campaign's competition.  

"It's a nice start to our defence of the Central League Cup," he added. "We're happy with today's performance. We spoke before the game about how well we did last year and we wanted to come back and start well again in the competition this year.

"It's very important to start well, it boosts the confidence of the team and individual players so now we'll look to kick on and do well in the competition."
