Carshalton Athletic midfielder Sean O’Toole completed his comeback from an injury hell on Saturday as the Robins also got back to winning ways.

The winger, who made his first full competitive start after an eight-month lay-off, drew his side level against Guernsey with an 18-yard screamer, before Mickel Miller’s sixth of the season on 64 minutes eventually settled the affair 2-1.

Peter Adeniyi's men are now sixth in the Ryman Division South table, and corrected the wrongs of a 6-2 defeat at home to Worthing in the FA Cup on Monday.

However, after playing against the 10 men of Guernsey for almost an hour after defender Tom Martin was dismissed for a late lunge on Ricky Korboa, O’Toole said the result should have been more emphatic.

“We’ve had a bit of a torrid time lately, but it was good to bounce back on Saturday,” he said.

“Guernsey made it difficult by sitting very deep in the second-half and we perhaps didn’t make best use of our man advantage.

"I think we should’ve got more shots off on goal, but it felt good to get the three points in the end.”

That fourth win in five league games puts Carshalton firmly among the early pacesetters and O’Toole hopes to carry on playing a part in the club’s fine start.

“I was happy to be told I would start against Guernsey as I felt like I’d been training well,” he added.

“It’s hard sitting on the bench sometimes, but you do get to admire the football the lads are playing.

“Other teams, like Tooting and Corinthain Casuals, have also made good starts, but I believe no-one has the quality we do.

"Not many would get ahead of Mickel, Tommy (Bradford) and Ricky (Korboa) in the kind of form they are in.

“We are going into every game believing we can win but we maybe just need to start being more clinical in front of goal.”

Next up is tonight's (Monday) first round Ryman League Cup tie against visiting Molesey, kick-off 7.45pm.
