WINDSOR manager Mick Woodham has explained his side have not looked back since the construction of a new back four a fortnight ago, writes Rob Stevens.

Woodham used the Hellenic League Challenge Cup tie against Holyport to change his defence and Windsor responded to complete a hat-trick of wins, with three clean sheets and seven goals scored.

He told the Observer: “I go back to the Holyport game as the catalyst for these clean sheets. I wanted to construct a new back four then and, no disrespect to Holyport, but that was a good day to it.

“I had people that needed to play and I wanted to changes things around. All the good reasons were there but we were sluggish at best against Holyport.

“However, we got a lot from that game and put a lot of time into the match against Reading City. It worked out a treat then and really well against Holmer Green in midweek so, looking back, the Holyport game was very welcome for us.

“We managed to put a few plans in place and we haven’t looked back since, but we’ve got additions here.

“George Gould, Andy Ingram and Kieran Knight can all play at centre back, while Ben Smyth can play anywhere across the back four.

“But, this is the back four that have the shirts at the moment, plus Hugo Sobte (keeper) has been tereffic in the last two or three games, so we’ve got a nice and tidy back five.

“They’re working hard for each other now and understanding what it means to protect our box a little bit better than what we have been, and that gives us a great platform to go and play.”

Windsor completed a hat-trick of wins in all competitions following their 2-0 victory against Holmer Green in the Hellenic Premier Division.

Goals in the first-half from Ingram and debutante Fabio Nunes secured all three points for the home side at Stag Meadow.

The win means Windsor have moved up to seventh position in the league table and just three points Royal Wootton Bassett Town in fourth place.

Windsor recorded a first win in the Premier Division in five matches following their 3-0 victory away at Reading City on Saturday.

Goals from Daniel Roberts and Ingram gave Windsor a clear lead heading into the break at the Rivermoor Stadium, before Reading conceded an own goal after half-time.

Woodham commented: “We were very good in our shape and in the way we managed the game on Saturday. We got into a two-goal lead at half-time. It could’ve been a bit more but it wasn’t, so we managed with what we had.

“Reading came at us for 15-20 minutes which you would expect because they’re a good side, but we made a couple of changes and when the third goal came I thought we were comfortable.

“It was a terrific performance and gave us the confidence to turn up and play in the manner we did in the first-half against Holmer Green.

“We were good value for our lead and win, both on Saturday and in midweek.”

He added: "We could've won by a bit more in midweek but I don't think Hugo was really threatened.

"With a little bit of luck in the second-half maybe we could've added to the score but we didn't, so we held firm and managed the game.

"I can't ask for any more than that and I'm very proud."
