WINDSOR manager Mick Woodham admits that his side need to learn their lessons after a 6-0 defeat against Kings Langley in a friendly match on Saturday, writes Rob Stevens.

The visitors to Stag Meadow won the pre-season contest thanks to a hat-trick from Matthew Campbell-Mhlope plus an Eion McKeown brace and a further goal from substitute Tyrell Mitford.

continue to concede sloppy goals when the new season gets under way.

He told the Observer: "It was a horrible scoreline but self-inflicted because we could've done a little bit better at times.

"I'm a little bit disappointed with the goals that we conceded and we need to learn those lessons quickly. We made the same mistakes on Saturday as we did against Bracknell so we need to learn a little quicker.

"We were totally rolled over in the first 15 minutes and, in essence, the game was taken away from us.

"We battled away for half an hour towards the end of the first half, but then the first 10 minutes of the second saw the same result, two silly mistakes and two goals. We got punished and quite rightly so.

"We were okay in the last half-hour and I was disappointed we didn't score. We had one good opportunity and maybe another, but other than that we knew it was going to be a tough afternoon."

Woodham continued: "We need to do better and understand when is the right time to manage these games. We didn't manage the first half too well when it was pretty clear we were second best. We could've slowed the game down a little bit and managed it better, but we tried to take them on and we're not good enough for that.

"There are one or two positives, certainly in some of the individual performances. Sydney Woods did well and Bevan Van Wyk was good at right back. We had a new guy in at left back as well so we're finding out about characters.

"We didn't have it all our own way by any stretch of the imagination so, when the going does get tough, I'm looking for a reaction out of players and heads not going down.

"It was good to see the likes of Bevan trying to keep everyone going but on the face of it we were beaten 6-0. If that happens on Saturday then we've got to worry about it but, up against that opposition last weekend, it was okay."
