WINDSOR boss Mick Woodham believes that familiarity within the squad has been key to their recent impressive run of form.
The victory extends their unbeaten run to four matches in all competitions and keeps them in the top-half of the Combined Counties Premier Division table.
A delighted Woodham told the Observer: “We were very good. Solid, efficient and effective when we needed to be. It was a terrific afternoon for us.
“To beat Colliers Wood you have to counter their wide men and we done exactly that. We got a clean sheet, our third in four games.
“Our centre backs were strong in defence to nullify them and then were a threat for us in attack. Everyone done their jobs and it was a valuable three points won.
“The scoreline flattered them but it was a good game. They made us work extremely hard for it and we did. We were very good in terms of our work rate and took our chances.”
He continued: “It’s another job done and our away form is very decent at the moment. We’re starting to get into a pattern so I’m very pleased with the boys.

“We’re a lot more of a settled side since the turn of the year. We’re working with the same group of players and now the messages are starting to sink in.
“It’s about familiarity and we are not often afforded that luxury, but it does help and we’re very settled now.
“We have just got to keep on improving because we’re not pulling up any trees, but Colliers Wood have a very good home record and for them not to score shows we’ve done very well.”
Woodham handed a debut start to Haydon Clack and continued to show faith in youth with Usman Lalustani, George Bowles and Denzel Bonilla-Hurtado on the bench.
Windsor had the best chance of the first half when Clack hit the crossbar, but they were ahead soon after half-time.
A Clack corner fell nicely for Dunbar to scramble the ball over the line after 52 minutes.
The advantage was doubled four minutes later as Dunbar found space on the edge of the box and, after his shot was parried by Wester Young, Knight nipped in for his 15th goal of the season.
Windsor welcome fourth from bottom Chertsey Town to Stag Meadow this Saturday (3pm) and Woodham has done his homework.

“Their performances have been decent in the last month, better than their results,” he said. “We know quite a lot and will put a plan in place.
“Chertsey like to play and will try to do so on our pitch, so we will need to be ready and well organised.
“We’re at home so I expect us to win with the confidence we’ve gained from the last four or five games, and we have everyone available.”
Windsor have been drawn away to Epsom & Ewell in the Premier Challenge Cup semi-finals. The match will take place on Tuesday March 21 (7.45pm).
