WINDSOR manager Mick Woodham believes his side produced one of their best-ever away performances to win 2-1 in the FA Vase at Erith Town on Saturday, writes Rob Stevens.

Windsor have reached the last-32 in the Vase for the second successive season and Woodham insists the team was fantastic from start to finish at the Erith Sports Stadium.

A goal from Robert Lazarczuk gave the visitors the lead before the break and the advantage was doubled when Daniel Roberts found the back of the net on the hour mark.

Erith pulled a goal back through Steadmen Callender and threw everything at Windsor late on but the away side stood firm and held on for the victory.

Woodham told the Observer: "When I calm down I'll probably have the same reaction, I thought we deserved it.

"For an away performance, in the first 45 minutes we were outstanding. We took the game to them and our shape and gameplan worked absolutely fantastic. The boys stuck to it and we got a decent goal.

"There wasn't many chances available in the first-half for either side. There set-pieces are a danger and the boys managed that really well throughout the 90 minutes.

"In the second-half, the warning was they would improve, they would change a few things around and they did. They went very direct. All their free-kicks and throws were put into the box.

"When Erith got back to 2-1 you're always a little mindful of what can happen and all our good works undone, but we could've nicked another couple of goals at the death in fairness.

"I've got no complaints or criticism of anyone. I'm just proud of the boys because they were fantastic from the start to the finish.

"We had watched Erith and they present big threats at set plays, the same as Chichester. We dealt with Chichester in the first 25 minutes and we dealt with these.

"We got them frustrated and their management probably didn't help them. We knew that if we could get in their faces, work hard and do all the ugly stuff, which is not at the top of our bucket list, we would have the quality to win the game.

"It would've been very harsh on us if we got nothing out of the game, just on the basis of our first 45 minutes.

"There were great goals from Robert and Daniel, the one from Daniel was magnificent.

"It was a battle at the end but our defence held firm, and if that's what it takes, we have to do it. We have to put our bodies on the line.

"Everyone has got to take responsibility and ownership all through the park. It doesn't matter what number you have on your back, you've got to have the responsibility to defend at times.

"We got the second goal on the break and could've had one or two more. Were we at our very best at 2-0 up? Probably not, and that's what we've got to learn."
