WINDSOR manager Mick Woodham believes his side did not do a lot wrong in the 2-0 defeat to Ascot United on Saturday.

Goals from debutante Luqman Kassim and Nathan Minhas in the second-half secured all three points for Ascot at Stag Meadow.

The defeat leaves Windsor in ninth position in the table and without a win in four league matches, but Woodham insists his side are heading in the right direction.

He explained to the Observer: “The result did not go our way but performance wise we didn’t do a lot wrong. Sometimes these things go for you and sometimes they don’t.

“It was a great first goal and we have to take that on the chin because we’ve put away a few like that ourselves this season.

“Ascot are a difficult side to break down and perhaps we didn’t move them around enough.

“I’m not disappointed with the performance and the boys did as much as they could, but it comes down to very fine margins on the day.

“If Rob Lazarczuk scores with his header in the six-yard box then the complexion of the game probably changes.

“We only had four shots on goal and when that happens you’ve got to be fortunate to take something from the game.”

Woodham added: “We are just a little bit frustrated at the moment but we’re all trying hard.

“We lost at Bishops Cleve and they beat Binfield last weekend. We then got a hard-earned draw away at Fairford and they had a fantastic result to win on Saturday having been 3-0 down.

“Performance-wise we always want a little bit more but we’re going in the right direction and if we continue to play like we have been then we will win more games than we lose.”

Windsor return to action with a visit to Stag Meadow from Holyport in round three of the Challenge Cup on Saturday 20th October (3pm), but Woodham does not understand the need for a break in the fixtures.

He bemoaned: “The fixtures schedule is ridiculous. We’ve had so many away games this season and Saturday was the first meaningful home match we’ve had since the August Bank Holiday.

“I don’t understand why we’re not playing in October but like everyone else we will have to make the best of it. It’s disappointing but we will have to find our way through it.”

Looking ahead to the Challenge Cup tie, Woodham said: “Holyport are playing well and working hard for each other. Derek Sweetman (manager) has got them playing well so it will be a very tough game and we will not pay any less attention to it. We need to win and continue what we’re doing really.

“It’s definitely a banana skin and a great draw locally, but it will be a tough game for us and if you take your eye off the ball then you will be in trouble.”
