WINDSOR manager Mick Woodham has stressed that his side will not take their foot off the gas in the Hellenic League Challenge Cup semi-final tie at Almondsbury this Saturday (3pm), writes Rob Stevens.

It is a last chance for


to win some silverware this season and


has acknowledged they have to make that count after a disappointing exit from the Floodlit Cup last week.

He told the Observer: “We’ve got a little bit of knowledge on them but now is the time to focus on Saturday - we will make a few phone calls.

“It’s about getting everybody available for us, which we have, and competing in what is quite frankly the biggest game of our season.

“We’ve had some nice cup runs, the FA Vase obviously, but this is our last chance of any silverware so we have to make that count.

“It’s irrelevant for me, but I want the players to get to a final and for the supporters to have a nice day out.

“The support we’ve had this year, going all round the country with away fixtures more often than not, has been great. It will be a reward for them and for the players to reach a final.

“We will focus on the game now and if we’re lucky enough to come through to the other side in a positive style then fantastic.”

Woodham added: “Almondsbury knocked out Bishops Cleeve so that tells me they’ve got something.

“They’ve got nothing to lose and I would like to be in their situation. We will give them every respect and it’s irrelevant what league they’re in.

“It’s a semi-final and cup football is completely different as we already know. We saw that with Binfield last week.

“Three days after beating them comfortably at their place we got taught a lesson at Stag Meadow, so there will be no taking our foot off the gas that’s for sure.”

Windsor travel to Almondsbury with just one defeat from their last seven matches and a four-match winning streak in the Hellenic Premier Division.

Their midweek fixture at home to Flackwell Heath was abandoned after seven minutes due to floodlight failure at Stag Meadow, but Woodham has shed some light on their league target this season - a top-five finish.

He explained: “We want to finish as high as we can and, when you look at the season we’ve had with the fixtures being difficult, the boys deserve a pat on the back.

“Fifth place is achievable but the games in hand are crucial. Flackwell Heath are tough and Wantage will be coming to Stag Meadow, plus we’ve still got to play Lydney and Longlevens twice.”
