JAMIE O’Hara insists the ‘majestic’ Jack Paxman must take more of his chances after missing a golden opportunity to seal all three points before Billericay Town were made to settle for a 4-4 draw at Dorking Wanderers.

Paxman, Femi Akinwande, Jake Robinson and Doug Loft were on target for Town in the thrilling National League South clash.

But Paxman was denied moments before Dorking snatched a share of the spoils with a leveller in the fifth minute of injury time and O’Hara called on the midfielder to be more ruthless in front of goal.

“Pax was outstanding,” said player-manager O’Hara.

“When you put him on a 3G pitch, he is probably the best player in the league because he is majestic.

“He travels with the ball, his feet are fantastic and the ball sticks to him like glue.

“But I told him you can’t play that well, beat three players, beat the goalkeeper and then hit the post. That was the game there and he had to score.

“As much as I love him, he had to put the game to bed.

“You have got to be ruthless. It’s alright doing all the nice stuff but he has to take his chances.”

Although Niall McManus gave Dorking an early lead, Billericay responded in fine fashion.

Town were back on level terms just five minutes later as Paxman grabbed his first goal for the club with a deflected effort.

And the clash was quickly turned on its head as Akinwande found the back of the net for the fifth time since making the move to Billericay in November.

The visitors extended their advantage seven minutes after the interval thanks to Robinson converting from the penalty spot having seen Paxman bundled over.

However, Dorking halved the deficit through Elliott Buchanan and Jason Prior equalised following a scintillating counter-attack.

Loft restored Billericay’s lead with a long-range screamer.

Paxman and Brian Galach passed up two guilt-edged chances late on and the misses proved costly as Matt Briggs levelled in the dying moments.

And O’Hara felt Billericay deserved all three points.

“I thought we played fantastic,” added O’Hara, whose side are 16th in the standings.

“Dorking are a good side in a good moment, so it was always going to be a tough game but I thought we were fantastic.

“Pax missing an open goal to make it 5-3 and Brian missing the rebound before they scored an equaliser is what can happen in football.

“It was obviously disappointing because I thought we deserved the three points, but I can’t fault the boys’ effort and character.

“We have just got to be better in both boxes - that is the difference.

“If, in the last five minutes, we were better in both boxes in terms of putting the game to bed and defending better, we would have won the game.

“Every single one of the boys did well.”
