WINDSOR have extended their impressive form to just one loss in eight matches after a 1-1 home draw against Bedfont & Feltham on Tuesday.

Windsor had earlier beaten 10-man Sutton Common Rovers 1-0 at Stag Meadow on Saturday.

The results leave them 12th in the Combined Counties Premier Division table and seven points behind last season’s total of 55.

Robert Lazarczuk opened the scoring in midweek with a fine solo goal after 37 minutes. He burst past two defenders and beat another challenge inside the box before drilling the ball low across keeper Ravan Constable.

The lead did not last long though as Darren Putman equalised less than two minutes later. Windsor failed to deal with a corner at the back post and the defender steered the ball into the net from close range.

The hosts had the best chance to take all three points after the break when Lazarczuk volleyed in a cross from the right and Riccardo Cannon was denied by a smart point-blank save from Constable.

Windsor boss Mick Woodham told the Observer: “It was a tough game. Bedfont have got nothing to lose and are a dangerous side, they’re fighting to stay in the league and gave us a game. We were fairly evenly matched I thought.

“Our normal quality wasn’t really there. Our crosses were over-hit and under-hit, but a good goal from Robert was the only bit of quality from us throughout the 90 minutes really.

“But, we didn’t stick up, stuck at it and kept on trying to create something but it just wasn’t our night in front of goal really.

“When you look at what they created, Hugo Sobte made a save at the death, but other than that I don’t think they done anything, so we kept them at bay for most of the game.

“There was nothing really exciting from us but we didn’t get beat.”

He continued: “The delivery (for the equaliser) was good and we’ve got to do a little bit better on the back post and the timing wasn’t great after you score yourself, but it’s how you react and I thought we were fairly solid after that.

“I don’t think Bedfont really hurt us too much in open play so it was one of those nights really.”

Woodham added: “Their keeper has done well, I don’t know how much he knew about the save from Riccardo, and if it’s our night they go in the back of the net, so it summed it up really.

“On another night, we probably get that goal and then go on to get another but we didn’t so will take the point and move on to Saturday.

“We dug in on Tuesday, didn’t roll over, stuck to what we tried to have and looked after that point, looking for two more.

“We’re a tough team to beat and that’s how we are, and we need to be. These game are never easy but Bedfont are a dangerous side in midweek, whether or not the results will stack up on Saturday I don’t know.”

Commenting on the win against Sutton Common Rovers on Saturday, where George Gould scored the only goal of the game in the first half, Woodham said: “It was a good solid performance. We had to work very hard but kept a clean sheet, so we’re resilient and doing a lot of good things.

“We’re restricting teams to just a few chances in a game, but it’s not quite working for us in front of goal, that’s where we are at the moment.

“We’ve now lost one game in eight. Sutton had won five out of five and that looked like two good teams going at each other on Saturday.

“Sutton are a big strong side and came here on the back of a strong result against Camberley four days earlier, so I thought we done very well.

“We kept a clean sheet and got a goal nice and early, and could have had a bigger margin with a couple of chances right at the death that didn’t go for us, but we got the three points.

“There were some strong individual performances and collectively we were very good.”

Windsor make the journey to second in the table Westfield on Saturday (3pm) before a Combined Counties Premier Challenge Cup semi-finals tie away at Epsom & Ewell next Tuesday (7.45pm).
