WINDSOR manager Mick Woodham has explained his side did not need to be any more than fairly mediocre to beat Moreton Rangers on Saturday, writes Rob Stevens.

Windsor continue to make progress in the Hellenic League Challenge Cup after a 2-1 win in round four at Stag Meadow.

A goal from Matthew Stockill gave the home side a lead heading into the break, but Dougie Wallace equalised for Division Two West side Moreton after half-time.

Windsor secured their place in the quarter-finals when Robert Lazarczuk found the back of the net four minutes from time.

Midfielder Lazarczuk, 27, now holds the all-time record for appearances and goals at the club with 84 strikes in 167 matches.

Woodham admits that the performance was not fantastic but he insists Windsor have again proven that they are difficult to beat.

He told the Observer: "We found it difficult and weren't at our best so I'm just pleased to be in the draw for the next round really.

"We knew Moreton would come here and make a game of it and that's exactly what they did, so full credit to them for that.

"If we had taken our chances when they came in the first-half it could've been more comfortable, but we didn't and left them in the game for a long time and that's always dangerous.

"We had to change things around in the second-half and work hard to get another goal, but at no point did I see us getting beat.

We weren't quite at it on Saturday but didn't need to be any more that fairly mediocre really.

"We can talk to the boys until we're blue in the face about tempo and attitude but they're the ones out on the pitch and obviously felt that was enough to win the game."

He added: "We've been very good and strong in the last six performances and have again proven we're difficult to beat no matter what the opposition are like.

"We shouldn't lose sight that we're in games to win them and we've found a way to win again."

The goal Moreton Rangers scored was the first Windsor have conceded in 622 minutes of football, but Woodham insists he would have put money on it.

He explained: "I would've gone to the bookmakers and put money on it because it was always going to happen against someone you don't expect.

"I've would've liked to have seven clean sheets but it has happened and it was a decent goal as well."

Windsor return to action in the Hellenic Premier Division with a short trip to high-flying Ascot United this Saturday (3pm).

Ascot were the last team to beat Windsor back in early October, and Woodham believes his side have work to do in order to turn the tables.

He said: "We will have to get our game back on and where our performances were in the five or six matches before last weekend, but it's always nice to play the top sides.

"We're in a better place now and the personnel are more settled, so we can go there with confidence and see what we can do.

"We've found a formula that works for us and hopefully that'll be enough, but it's all about tempo and getting our application right before the game."
