FAIRFORD Town boss Jody Bevan is delighted with the progress his side are making after seeing the Reds register back to back wins for the first time under his tutelage.
A 1-0 win at Woodley United on Saturday came courtesy of a 67th minute strike from Lee Smith, his tenth of the campaign.
Speaking to the Swindon Advertiser, Bevan said: “It was a very, very tough game – the conditions were horrendous.
“But that is the first time that we have got to back-to-back wins this season so we have got to be very pleased.
“It is wasn’t pretty, but we are making progress, we have played a lot better this season and have lost the match.
“We are in a run of games now that it is vital for us to pick up points.”
And with a settled side, the manager feels he is now able to move forward after a testing few months at the helm.
“It has taken a bit of time, but this is my squad now, there can be no excuses,” he said.
“It has taken time, there was a time that I could barely raise a squad of 16 players and I was having to come off the bench.
“But when you look around at the local clubs now they have got some terrible injury lists – we had that for the first two months of the season.
“We now got a settled squad, we are by no means out of the woods, and we are making progress.”
