Enfield Town boss Gavin Macpherson felt his side could have beaten Potters Bar Town by more in their FA Cup first qualifying round tie.

Marcus Wyllie's seventh goal in six games put them in front after just eight minutes and Sam Youngs doubled the advantage inside a quarter of an hour.

And Joe Payne sealed a 3-0 victory in the second half, although a host of other chances went begging.

"How the game panned out we should have won by a country mile," Macpherson told the club website.

"We were disappointed at half-time not to have made it a non-contest.

"Whilst it was 2-0 they had a chance and we were perhaps missing a ruthless streak.

"You could argue we were not great in front of goal yet we scored three. That's what this team is capable of. Once you get to 3-0, it's easier to express yourself."

The hosts saw Adelberto Pinto fire over for the Scholars before Wyllie's outstanding finish opened the scoring.

Youngs then ghosted in to head home from Ollie Knight's corner, while James Richmond headed a free-kick from the same player against the crossbar.

Reece Beckles-Richards was denied by the leg of Preston Edwards, who kept out another attempt from Knight before the interval.

But Knight's pass found Payne to claim the third and end any hopes of a comeback for the visitors, with Edwards producing more saves from Beckles-Richards and Payne.

Scott Thomas fired into the side netting, before Edwards thwarted Wyllie, and Max Jessop saw late hope of a consolation shattered by an offside flag.

"Ollie Knight thoroughly deserved his man of the match award," added Macpherson.

"His supply from wide areas is a defender's nightmare and he works tirelessly.

"The FA Cup is so important, not just for me but also the club and the supporters."

Town were handed a home tie against Felixstowe & Walton in Monday's draw for the second quailfying round, with ties on September 16.

The winners will collect £3,375 in prize money, while losers receive £1,125.

Town return to Isthmian League Premier Division action with a home game against Bognor Regis Town on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Enfield host Walthamstow in the FA Trophy first qualifying round.
