EASTLEIGH boss Lee Bradbury heaped praise on youngster Alfie Lloyd for his strike against Dorking Wanderers – believing the effort to be deserving of all three points.

QPR loanee Lloyd rounded off a mazy run by blasting home the opener in Eastleigh 1-1 draw at Dorking, the hosts equalising late on via former Saint Ryan Seager.

Speaking on the solo effort, Bradbury told Eastleigh’s media: “Great strike.

“It deserved to win the game, to be honest.

“I just thought he was constant trouble for them, every time he got the ball.

“Barry Fuller has to go off, because he gets booked and is probably lucky because he should have been off the pitch because the penalty shout was him.

“But Alfie’s goal was fitting to win any game, I thought.”

On a short-term loan from Championship QPR, 19-year-old Lloyd has impressed Bradbury with his attitude and approach.

“I’m really pleased for him,” he continued.

“He’s a great kid and he wants to listen, wants to learn.

“He’s 19 years old. We’ve got some young players in there that are still learning the game, but I’m proud of the boys.

“They just couldn’t quite hang on for that extra five or six minutes.”
