WINDSOR manager Mick Woodham has hailed his side as being fantastic from start to finish after a 2-0 win at Chichester City in the FA Vase on Saturday, writes Rob Stevens.

Windsor are now the sole representatives from the Hellenic League remaining in the national competition following their second round victory at Oaklands Park.

The goals came from Daniel Roberts and Matt Stockill either side of half-time, while Dave Herbert of Chichester was shown a straight red card before the first strike and Kieran Hartley got his marching orders late on.

An absolutely delighted Woodham told the Observer: "We had a gameplan and for the first 25 minutes we had to sit in and not show what we could do too much.

"We were determined to get a foothold in the match then we could play our game and it worked out really well.

"Chichester have got threats going forward but I thought if we could execute our plan then we would be on the positive side of a result and that's exactly how it's gone.

"I'm not being unfair or disrespectful but we could've scored another two or three goals, and to have a clean sheet against a free-scoring Chichester just shows you how well the group has done.

"Chichester are a good side and the league table doesn't lie, so we had to do things to match them. If we could sit in, frustrate them and try to be tight and competitive then we would see where it goes.

"I thought we were dominate after the first 25 minutes and for an hour after that we were very good.

"We went into half-time with a man advantage and a goal, something Chichester didn't have, so it was a case of looking after that in the second-half.

"Hugo (Sobte, keeper) didn't have too many saves to make but he was fantastic in the air with his hands and came for everything.

"We knew how Chichester would set up for set-pieces and Hugo has executed those plans really well.

"Everyone has worked really hard and I'm not going to highlight any individuals because it has been a collective effort. We've come here with a plan, the boys have bought into it, and it's a terrific result for us."

He continued: "Four wins and four clean sheets tells me we're going in the right direction, and to do that against a good side in Chichester show that we've got something in the changing room that's starting to unfold.

"We've got loads of improvement in us and we will keep on pushing on.

"At any level, if your bench is strong then you've got competition and for the last three weeks we've had a fantastic bench. For me to leave out players like Paul Coyne tells you that we've got a good group here.

"He understands that and will get back in, but on Saturday we had the right side that performed really well and fully deserved the win away from home."

Windsor have been drawn away to Erith Town from the Southern Counties East League Premier Division in round three of the FA Vase on Saturday 1st December.

Windsor beat Erith 2-1 in the second round last season, and Woodham explained no side would not want to play his team when they are on the road.

He said: "We seem to have a little pattern of performing and we're enjoying the away trips as well, and that's what the national cups are about. Wherever we go we're going to enjoy it.

"The support was amazing again on Saturday and we're very fortunate to have a uniqye set of supporters. I'm glad that they've gone away with something to cherish."
