Fallon happy with derby showing

Fallon led Histon to third place in the Blue Square Premier last season

Histon boss Steve Fallon has praised his side's commitment after Matt Langston's last-minute goal earned them a 1-1 draw with Cambridge.

Chris Holroyd gave the visitors the lead at the Glass World Stadium before Langston's header gave Histon a point.

Fallon told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "We need to work on that 20-minute period where we let them get on top.

"We seemed to panic a little bit on the ball, but the bigger picture is that it was a good performance."

After going four games without a win at the beginning of the season, Histon are now showing signs of improvement and Sunday's draw leaves them seven points off the Blue Square Premier play-off places.

"It's another step nearer to where we want to be," added Fallon.

"We're still a little way off, but performances like that only help us believe in the way we want to play."

On-loan winger Sam Long came off the bench late on to inject some pace into the Histon attack.

The 19-year-old has moved to the Glass World on a three-month deal from Grays Athletic and Fallon is hoping that he can make an impact during his stay.

"That wide right position, which can be a problem for us, is one that he might be able to fill," said Fallon.

"He's very enthusiastic and very direct. There's a little bit of work to be done with him but there are signs he can be a good player for us."
