WINDSOR manager Mick Woodham believes his side are one of a group of teams that can win the Hellenic Premier Division title this season.

The lack of an outstanding candidate has thrown the division wide open, so consistency with regards to results will be the key to any push for promotion.

Windsor are yet to find their rhythm results-wise - four wins and three defeats in eight league matches - but Woodham explained there is still room for improvement at Stag Meadow.

He told the Observer: “It’s quite crowded at the top at the moment so we can’t really be too critical of the boys.

“We have dropped some points in matches that morally and emotionally I felt we had won, but we’ve been passive at times as well where over 90 minutes we haven’t done enough.

“We’re looking to push on really and there’s room for improvement. We’ve got got work to do and need to improve, but I believe we will and we can be in the mix.”

Woodham added: “Wantage have been pretty clear in terms of where they want to go but have already been beaten this season.

“Everyone can beat anyone, so I don’t think they’ll be one team that will run away with it and we want to be in that mix.

“When the clocks and pitches change, there will be some changes in results and league positions that’s for sure. The league is wide open for me and one of five or six can win it.”

Windsor make the journey to Bishops Cleeve this Saturday (3pm) and Woodham is expecting another tough afternoon.

He said: “It’s always difficult away from home but we’ve got to get some points back on the board so we will go into it with a bit of confidence and see where it takes us.

“Their results are a little bit mixed, Bishops Cleeve beat Brimscombe & Thrupp two days after they beat us, and they got a draw with Ascot in the first game of the season.

“I shall make some calls to see what we’re up against but they’ve come down from step four and will be very difficult, big and strong, but no different to anything down there in the league to be fair.”

  • WINDSOR have made progress in the Hellenic League Challenge Cup this season after a 5-1 win against North Leigh United on Saturday.
