Bevan’s delight after back-to-back wins

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.”
