Banbury United manager Mike Ford praised his side’s battling qualities after they extended their unbeaten run to six games.

The Puritans came from behind again to beat Cambridge City 2-1 in Monday’s Evo-Stik Southern League clash.

Puritans boss Mike Ford

Ford said: “We’ve played miles better than that over 90 minutes and not won games so to go to Cambridge on a Monday night, 48 hours after a tough game against Biggleswade, and nick it at the end is great.

“We dominated the first half and were on top at the start of the second half but then we lost our shape and discipline. They got on top but we ended up winning the game!

“Our ability in the first half should have won us the points but our determination to overcome adversity in the second half has.

“Cambridge will feel hard done by but over the 90 minutes we deserved to win because we were the better team.

“We created our own problems. We’re not taking our chances and their goal has again come from us being in an attacking position.”
