WINDSOR boss Mick Woodham has admitted the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Chertsey on Saturday was “disappointing and difficult to watch”.
Joe Jones scored twice to give Chertsey a clear lead heading in to the half-time interval before Haydon Clack pulled a goal back for Windsor on the hour - his first for the club.
“It was a disappointing result,” Woodham told the Observer. “I feel as if we have gone backwards and we’ve been here before.
“We’ve had a good 2017 so far, scoring plenty of goals, keeping clean sheets and putting in good performances, and it was a game we were expecting to win.
“We had plenty of chances but Chertsey scored two goals with two chances and then decided to defend for the rest of the match.
“We didn’t do enough because we had an hour to score goals and win the game. We had the chances to win the game comfortably. We didn’t have a problem creating so I’m disappointed.
“The team was the same bar one change but it was just one of those days, and there is no point in worrying about it because there’s not a lot you can do.

“When we missed with only the keeper to beat in the opening seconds you feel it’s not going to be your day.
“It was difficult to watch and disappointing but we will pick ourselves up and go gain, looking to set a few things right.”
Chertsey took the lead on seven minutes when Jones managed to slot the ball home at the second attempt following a good save by keeper Hugo Sobte.
The visitors doubled their lead midway through the first half as Jones netted his second of the match.
Windsor kept the pressure on after the break and managed to half the deficit on the hour mark when Clack scored with a well-taken free-kick.
Windsor welcome fifth from bottom CB Hounslow United to Stag Meadow on Saturday (3pm), and the visitors bring back memories of another frustrating game for Woodham.
He commented: “We battered them at their place but were left scratching our heads, so we don’t want them to do the double over us.
“Hounslow will be a lot more difficult, that’s a fact. They’re a very good footballing side, very experienced and fast up front, so we will have to be aware of the threat they will carry.
“At least we know we’re creating and doing plenty right.”
