Kingstonian assistant Gary Abbott labelled strike pair Ryan Moss and Andre McCollin as the best in the Ryman Premier League as his side won 4-0 at Cray Wanderers.

McCollin, without a goal since netting the winner against Margate last month,  headed in Moss's cross for the first half opener before a Sam Page header, a McCollin penalty and a Charlie Knight lob relegated their hosts.

Former AFC Bournemouth trainee Moss and his 29-year-old strike partner have scored 50 goals between them in all competitions this term as fifth-placed Ks have stayed in the promotion play-off hunt. 

And Abbotts was only too pleased to see the pair back in harness after McCollin's enforced absence following a straight red card at Margate.

"We did not come thinking we'd walk all over them. We knew they'd have a go because I think they could still stay up," he said.

"We come here and done a job. It could have been more, but it was all about getting the three points.

"We've been keeping cleansheets but not scoring goals so it was nice to see Andre coming back and getting two.

"When those two [Moss and McCollin] play together there are no better strikers in our league."

Ks make the awkward trip to Leiston on Tuesday and Abbott is focused only on his team and not results elsewhere. 

"It all about what we do," he added.

"We've got five games to go and five cup finals to play."
