WINDSOR manager Mick Woodham is pleased his side managed to find a way to win in a 1-0 victory against Abingdon United on Saturday, writes Rob Stevens.

A goal from full-back Jamie Di Guiseppe, his first in the league this season, on 87 minutes was the difference between the two sides at Northcourt Road.

It is a sixth consecutive clean sheet for Windsor and means they have not conceded a goal since the defeat to Ascot United six weeks ago.

Woodham explained to the Observer: "It was a hard-earned win to be fair. We had to work hard and found it difficult to break them down.

"We had a couple of good opportunities in their six-yard box in the first-half which we failed to take. We should have punished them then and that would've put a different outlook on the game.

"We kept on going and slowly but surely we found a way to get through them, and their keeper made one or two very good saves.

"It looked at stages like being another 0-0 draw and if Abingdon defended any deeper they would've been in Wiltshire rather than Oxford.

"They were happy with a draw with 10-15 minutes left so it was a case of us moving our shape around and playing the ball in the right areas.

"We found a way to win which is pleasing and the most important thing. We were good value for the win and it's another clean sheet."

He added: "The boys are working really hard all over the pitch and Abingdon didn't look like scoring. The scoreline makes it look closer than it actually was.

"The back five are playing with confidence and managing the game, plus the whole team is doing well all over the pitch, so there are no complaints from me."

The win leaves Windsor in ninth position in the Hellenic Premier Division table with 24 points from their opening 15 matches.

Windsor turn their attention to the Hellenic Challenge Cup and a fourth round tie at home to Moreton Rangers from Division Two West this Saturday (3pm).

Woodham commented: "Moreton Rangers beat Shrivenham to get to this stage so that deserves respect.

"We're at home on a Saturday which is a novelty for us at the moment. I'm confident in the form we're in and the prize is a big one for us all.

"We want to be successful and to do that you've got to ge through these early round, but it's cup football so who knows.

"We want to stay in the cup competition and the only way to do that is to win the game. That;s our focus and message to the boys."
