Stein praises players after two wins

Banbury United boss Edwin Stein will be loooking for his side to make three wins on the bounce at Frome on Saturday.

Stein saw his side blow away Kettering Town on Tuesday with a splendid display of football which warranted more goals but the Puritans boss was just happy to get three more points.

Tuesday’s victory came on the back of Saturday’s 2-0 success at Chippenham Town.

Both goals came in the first half from Joseph N’Guessan, on his debut, and Isaac to earn United their first victory in 11 attempts at Chippenham and their first double of the season. Former Oxford City and Bishops Stortford keeper Warren Carter kept a clean sheet on his debut and followed up with another one against Kettering.

“To me the most thing was to get the victory against Kettering,” said Stein.

“But there’s a real belief in the side now and there’s no reason why we can’t go to Frome and get a result.

“The players put a lot of effort into Saturday’s performance at Chippenham and I just felt they may have taken their eyes off the Kettering game. We should have scored a few more goals. It’s another three points and a clean sheet.

“We played some excellent football and that’s the way I’ve wanted them to play since I came here. I just wish we could get more people here to watch the games.”
