HOLYPORT manager Derek Sweetman believes there is a good vibe around Summerleaze after Port extended their unbeaten run to six matches this week, writes Rob Stevens.

Port made it four wins in four matches in the Hellenic Subsidiary Cup after a 4-2 victory at Woodley United on Monday.

Fabian Driffill scored twice in the win at Rivermoor, with further goals from Lee Ovens and Alan Akerman.

Sweetman is confident Holyport have got one foot in the door of the latter stages of the competition, and he explained his players are working extremely hard for each other.

He told the Observer: "It was a good performance from the boys. We played really well and at a high intensity.

"I'm pleased with scored a few goals and, to be fair, over the 90 minutes it was quite comfortable.

"Woodley have changed their squad quite drastically and have some decent players now with a lot of confidence.

"For little periods they put us under a lot of pressure, but we weathered the storm and eventually got over the line.

"We've not quite qualified (from the Group Stage) just yet and can be caught, but our goal difference is worth an extra point as well. We've still got to play Aldermaston so we will not be counting our chickens."

Holyport return to action in Division One East with a visit to Summerleaze from bottom side Chinnor this Saturday (3pm), and Sweetman is aware it is a potential banana skin for his side.

He explained: "Chinnor have struggled a little bit at the moment but they work hard and are physically strong. You have to earn the right to beat them and they will make it as difficult as possible.

"The physical side of the game is normally the way it goes with Chinnor. They're committed and sometimes over-committed at times. It'll certainly be a tough and physical game.

"Chinnor will want to stop us at all costs so we've got to be on our game. They play at the same level of football as we do, so it's up to us to do what we're good at."

Sweetman added: "The players have swapped and changed a little bit in recent weeks and some have taken the chance to play.

"We've probably got the strongest squad we've had this season now so hopefully there's more to come."
