FAIRFORD Town manager Jody Bevan is hoping it’s sixth time lucky as they bid for their first Hellenic League Premier win of the season at home to Brackley Town Saints.

Following a run of three defeats and two draws since the start of the season, the Fairford boss admits he would like to get that win on the board as soon as possible.

“We want to get the three points quickly, the main thing from my point of view is I have seen an improvement in the last two weeks,” he said.

“There has almost been a coming together in the squad over the last two games, it feels like we are on the right track now.

“I’ve gone on record a few times and said I thought we were three weeks behind when we started the season.

“When we had a good performance in the first game I think it gave me a false sense of where we were, but it was always going to take a little bit of time.

“I’m in a position now where I know the strengths and weaknesses of all the players and what positions they can so play, so now all we need is that first win.”

Royal Wootton Bassett are in a similar scenario to Fairford as they too are yet to record a victory this season and they will hope they can break that streak away to Flackwell Heath.

Highworth have made a superb start to the season and sit top of the early league standings with five straight wins ahead of their trip to Wantage Town.

In Division One West, Shrivenham will aim to get back-to-back wins at the first time of asking when they face Kidlington Reserves away from home.

Meanwhile second-from-bottom New College host Pewsey Vale, who sit in fourth.
