Auckland City FC beat Tasman United in the National Youth League on Sunday but only just - and Junior Navy Blues skipper Connor Cahill-Fahey says there is room for improvement.

The Junior Navy Blues made it two wins from two after their 2-1 win over Tasman but after going into a two goal lead were on the backfoot.

Cahill-Fahey said striving for consistency and focus for the duration of a match was vital if the Junior Navy Blues are to make an impression on the title race this season.

"It was a tough game but getting the win was very important.

"We did well in the first half but in the second Tasman came right onto us.

"But we dealt with the pressure in the end, fortunately," he said.

The Junior Navy Blues looked comfortable at the break but when Matt Tod-Smith pulled a goal back midway through the second half, Cahill-Fahey felt the game was delicately poised.

"In the first half we kept the ball well, switched play well and they weren't causing us too many problems.

"We need to work on maintaining that throughout the entire game.

"It got nervy towards the end when Tasman won all those corners and we were hanging on but we made it," he said.

The Junior Navy Blues next assignment is no less difficult with an away match at Canterbury United.

"Its going to be tough down at Canterbury United on the turf.

"Its always a hard game down there and hopefully we can work on the parts of our game we need to and get another result," he said.

Canterbury United lost their last match in the competition to Southern United by 2-1.
