A brace from in-form Excellence Mahumba and a well-converted penalty from Dylan Ive secured Windsor a convincing 3-0 victory against Lydney Town who were shut out from scoring all afternoon.
The Royalists close the gap on the visitors with the victory, who now sit just the one below Lydney Town in seventh place in the Hellenic League Premier, having played the same amount of games.
After the match, boss Mark Cooper said he was delighted with his side who were able to stay level-headed against a physical Lydney side.
“It’s a big win for us,” he said. “It was a tight first half with a couple of chances either side.”
“A clean sheet was really important for us at half time and we went into the break 0-0.
“I didn’t mind that. We stayed patient and looked to push on in the second half which is exactly what we did.”
New signing Excellence Mahumba appears to be enjoying life at Stag Meadow, the forward able to boost his goal tally to four in three games against the Town.
Cooper was full of praise for the player he credits is adept in both attack and defence.
“He’s just so dangerous,” he added. “He always looks like scoring and could’ve probably had a goal in the first half."
“He looks a real handful every time we go forward and he can play both ways, both in behind and with his back to the goal aswell. We’re absolutely delighted with him.”
Windsor host Virginia Water tomorrow (Tuesday) evening at Stag Meadow for a 7.45pm kickoff.
