WINDSOR manager Mick Woodham has explained the 2-0 defeat at Wantage Town on Saturday is a result that his side will take on the chin, writes Rob Stevens.

A goal from Jack Dunmall gave Wantage the lead inside the first minute at Alfredian Park, before Dan Sadler secured all three points with a strike in the 48th minutes.

It is a first defeat in six matches in all competitions for Windsor and leaves them in 14th position in the Hellenic Premier Division.

Woodham admits his side never got going in the match, but he expects them to do much better when Wantage visit Stag Meadow for the return fixture on the final day of the season in April.

He told the Observer: “Having played Brackley Town Saints in midweek and put a lot of effort into that, we left some energy and legs behind.

“We had a couple of injuries and a little bit of illness so we never going going and it was disappointing really.

“There was effort and we huffed and puffed but never got going pretty much and it didn’t go for us on the day.

“We didn’t really adapt but the personnel was different to the Brackley match and the heavy pitch didn’t help us.

“We found it tough going while Wantage looked more fresh and sharp, probably because they didn’t play in midweek.

“We had the slope and the wind behind us in the second-half but didn’t find a way through. It was disappointing and we can do a lot better.

“It was just a bad day for us really but we will take it on the chin. The result we can do better with and we will the next time we play them.”

Windsor turn their attention to the FA Vase and a fifth round tie at Biggleswade from the Spartan South Midlands Premier Division on Sunday.
