MALMESBURY Victoria extended their unbeaten run to six games this weekend when they came out winners away at Bishop Sutton.

Shane Bumphrey’s goal, which is his fourth from his last five games, was the difference between the two teams, with the Vics still at the top of table.

Manager Kevin Bridgeman admits his side may struggle to keep hold of their star man Bumphrey as he continues on the goal trail.

“He’s a good friend of Tim Bond. He gave me Shane’s number and told me to see what I can do. We managed to get him in and he’s been great since,” said Bridgeman.

“He is a master poacher. We hope we can keep him for the whole season but if he carries on as he is, then I think there will be a few clubs sniffing around him.

“It was a good win but it was tough. They haven’t had a great start in the league so far but they play well and just don’t get the results.

“They didn’t ever threaten us to be honest. There weren’t many chances but we had two and took one.

“Most of the time, the games are tight. You just need to take your chances when you get them. We brought in Shane, who adds that extra bit of quality to find the net.”

Malmesbury’s next opponents are Devizes Town, who will go into the game on the back of a 7-0 drubbing against Keynsham Town when the two sides meet on Tuesday night.
