Mick Woodham has praised his sides’ desire to impress and believes his team are ‘dangerous’ when they play without fear.
The Royalists have shot up the table in recent weeks and despite the games coming thick and fast, Woodham has been impressed with the entire squad’s willingness to get the hard work done.
“I’ve got 19 Boys,” said Woodham.
“19 doesn’t go into 16 and 16 doesn’t go into 11.
“Everyone’s hungry and playing well and has the attitude to impress. The squad are all friends with each other and the push each other to get better.”
The Roaylists will only get hungrier as the season ticks towards their May 6 league cup final against Ascot United and if recent weeks are anything to go by they are filling up on Hellenic Premier wins. Saturday saw back-to-back home league wins for Woodham’s men, as Kane Fitzgerland opened the scoring against Fairdford Town before George Gould bagged his 50th goal for the club in the 2-0 win.
“It was straight forward and a routine win,” added Woodham.
“Job done, three points, clean sheet and no injuries and a good home performance.
“Third clean sheet on the spin which is good, everybody likes those
The 2-0 win against Fairford came after an impressive 3-0 demolition of promotion hopefuls Brackley Town Saints and Windsor will need more of the same as they take on third-placed Bishops Cleeve on Saturday.
The previous meeting between the two sides saw Cleeve come out with a narrow 1-0 win and the Windsor boss knows the task that is at hand for his team, but remained confident his side can make things tough for the promotion chasers.
“They have been in the top three or four nine months,” said Woodham.
“They are hard working, no different from anyone else in this league.
“But we’ve got no pressure on us. We will be playing without fear and that makes us dangerous”
Saturday’s 3pm kick off at Stag Meadow kick starts a busy run for the Royalists, as they play four games in nine days, culminating in an Easter Monday fixture against Wantage Town on April 22 at 3pm.
