WINDSOR reached round three of the Challenge Cup this season after a 3-2 win at Flackwell Heath on Saturday.

Goals either side of the half-time interval from Kieron Knight and Jack Denton gave Windsor a clear lead in the second round tie at Wilks Park.

Francis Amartey pulled one back, but Knight restored the two-goal lead with his second strike five minutes from time.

Dean Allen bagged a late consolation effort for the home side but it is Windsor who go through and Mick Woodham is delighted to have completed a cup double over The Heathens.

The Windsor boss told the Observer: “We learnt some lessons from the previous week. We put that into the gameplan and stuck to it, and I’m delighted with the reaction from the boys.

“I wanted Ramel Sutherland and Nadir Shafi to experience it and we left Hugo Sobte out because of the (ankle) injury, so the whole group are getting game time.

“To win at Flackwell again is never easy no matter what you say. To score three goals away is a confidence booster for us and we’re still in another cup competition so we keep ploughing on. It’s only October-November but onwards and upwards.”

Woodham continued: “We treat all the competitions equally. We worked hard in each round, like we worked hard at Chalfont to win there.

“Whatever the title of the cup games it’s inrelevant because we want to win every match.

“We’re in cup competitions up until Christmas that sets us up well for the start of the New Year.

“The squad and pitch are good and we can’t control the weather, but a lot of these cups are on a Saturday as well so our diary is good.

“We don’t have a fixture in midweek next week so we can prepare for the FA Vase and we’re in a good place, but it’s only October/November.”
