WINDSOR boss Mick Woodham believes his side can get their FA Cup campaign under way this Saturday feeling a little happier about themselves.

Windsor welcome Highworth Town to Stag Meadow in the extra preliminary round (3pm) having recorded a first win this season when beating Shrivenham 6-1 in midweek.

Woodham told the Observer: “I was really happy for the boys to get the three points and it was important to win after suffering a defeat last weekend.

“It was important to go into this match with an element of confidence around us.

“We trained well last night (Thursday) and took the positives out of midweek when we were very good offensively.

“This is a different game and I understand that, but it’s a game of football and we’re at home, so we won’t be on the back foot.

“Highworth got promoted last season so they’re already playing at step four. They’re a good side and not going to be easy.

“I would always like to improve our record but we’re governed by the draw. Could ours have been kinder? Yes, then we go through.

"That’s not to be so we will take it on the chin and see how far we go, but it won’t be for the want of trying.”
