WINDSOR striker Barry Dunbar believes that the 3-0 win against Spelthorne Sports on Tuesday is just what the club needed after a poor run of form in recent weeks.

The Stag Meadow side had won just once in 10 league matches before an encouraging victory in midweek moved them back into the top-half of the Combined Counties Premier Division.

Dunbar, 25, scored twice in the win, his opener a first-time volley and contender for Goal of the Season, and he hopes Windsor can push on in the run-up to Christmas.

“It was definitely just what we needed and to be honest it’s nice,” he told the Observer. “You could tell that in the changing room after the game. Everyone was loving it, singing and dancing, and it just makes a change.

“Everyone dug deep. The spirit, fight and hunger was there and it made a change.

Mick Woodham [manager] does a lot for the club, and the fans are standing out in the cold every night, so it’s nice to get a win for them as well.

“The introduction of Ellis [Jones-Aryeg] and having George [Gould] back gives us a good bit of strength in midfield. We had players that wanted to win the ball.

“Hopefully we can build on it now because there’s no point scoring three goals, conceding none and getting the three points, then playing next week and losing the game by playing rubbish.

PHOTO: Barry Dunbar took his tally for the season to nine goals with two for Windsor in the 3-0 win against Spelthorne Sports on Tuesday.

“It’s not something we want to do, but the win on Tuesday was definitely good, and hopefully we can crack on now, that’s the main thing.”

Dunbar was recalled to his side’s the starting line-up in midweek and took the opportunity to notch his eighth and ninth goals of the campaign this season.

“I was glad to get my start and my goals plus a clean sheet for the team,” he said. “I got my chance and hopefully I can go on from here.

“Some say it [the first goal] was off the shin pad but it was a clean strike and definitely my best goal at this level.”

Windsor travel to Camberley Town this Saturday (3pm) keen to avenge the 5-0 defeat suffered at Krooner Park last season.

Dunbar added: “It’s always a tough game. Obviously the last time we was there it wasn’t exactly a good result even though we played well against them.

“Hopefully we can take the midweek performance into it.”
