WINDSOR forward Daniel Roberts has explained the thought of playing at Wembley is keeping him inspired during their FA Vase campaign this season, writes Rob Stevens.

Windsor have reached the last-32 of the national competition for a second successive season after a 2-1 win away at Erith Town on Saturday.

Roberts, 20, scored in in the third round success as well as in the victory at Chichester City in the previous round, and the Vase has given him an extra buzz.

He told the Observer: "Being at Bracknell Town last season I watched Windsor from the sidelines. I knew the buzz of the competition and around the clubs that were in it.

"This season, it was a competition where I wanted to do it again and there's no reason why we can't. We're now looking at the last-32 and I don't see why we can't go all the way.

"We look at it as a bonus that we're representing the league. We want to do the club, the fans and the league proud.

"We're representing a group of teams that are probably in one of the best leagues in this competition. Hopefully we can show that in the later rounds and see where it takes us.

"It's definitely one game at a time but playing at Wembley is always a thought and it's the thought that keeps you going.

"You think about Wembley each time you turn up for an FA Vase game and that gives you an extra buzz.

"The boys know what's at the end and hopefully we can see ourselves walking out at Wembley at the end of the season."

Roberts continued: "It was a long journey for an away tie on Saturday, but we put everything into it and came out with the win.

"We've changed the formation to try to crowd and dominate the midfield and it's been working.

"We've brought in two new boys at centre back and they were solid throughout the whole 90 minutes.

"We scored a couple of goals and kept it really tight at the back.

"Another part of our gameplan was to defend from the front and that starts with me and Andrew Ingram.

The back four with George Gould and Luke Brooks-Smith sitting just in front were absolutely brilliant. We couldn't ask for any more from them.

"They've put their bodies in the way and given absolutely everything, so we managed to hold out."

Commenting on his goal, Roberts said: "I just wanted to run at him. I got the pass and knew I had just one defender between me and the goal. I took a touch and the goal came open so I just hit it.

"Since my injury it's been difficult but especially in the last couple of weeks.

"I hadn't scored in two or three games and there was a doubt about my confidence, but it was always a case of one goal and start to push on again."
