Banbury United boss Paul Davis was delighted with his side’s 3-0 victory over Weymouth in Saturday’s Evo-Stik Southern League clash.

Goals from Carl Tappin, Leam Howards, his 17th of the season, and a Jacob Walcott penalty earned the Puritans all three points against the play-off chasers at Spencer Stadium.

Davis said: “That was up there with our best results this season but we deserved it.

“It’s pleasing to keep a clean sheet and we’ve only conceded one goal in the last three games. I said we needed to tighten things up, not just the back four, but all over the pitch.

“We will always score goals so if we can keep it tight then we’ll always have a good chance of winning games.”

It was an excellent all round display from the Puritans but Davis had special praise for Kynan Isaac who played a big part in all three goals.

He added: “Kynan Isaac has surprised a few people since he’s been back, some supporters didn’t want him here, but he’s done fantastic for us. He’s worked his socks off in every game and what he does for us with the ball is different class.”

United can now catch Arlesey Town, they are five points behind but with two games in hand and Davis added: “It wasn’t in our hands at 3pm to overtake Arlesey but it is now. That remains our first target.

“I said before Saturday that we’ve still got five games left and if we win all five we would stop up, we’ve won the first one. I’m not going to say we’re going to win the next four but if we did I’m sure we would stay up.”
