SWINDON Supermarine boss Dave Webb won’t be taking managerless Mangotsfield United lightly when they travel to Bristol this weekend.

David Mehew, who joined the Mangos in October 2015, resigned last month following their FA Cup defeat to Western League side Odd Down.

Veteran goalkeeper Steve Phillips has taken charge on a temporary basis, with interviews being carried out this week to find Mehew’s replacement.

However, since the defeat to Odd Down, Mangotsfield have recorded their first league win and picked up a draw in their last outing to leave them unbeaten under Phillips and, as a result, Webb will be keeping his wits about him as he looks to extend his side’s unbeaten start to the season to seven games.

“It’s an unbeaten start, six games, we’ve got a difficult game against Mangotsfield this weekend, it’s never an easy place to go and win but we can’t go there in better form and we’re in confident form,” he said.

“We’re really looking forward to it and we’ve had a week to prepare for it.

“They’ve had a poor start. David Mehew, the manager, has left and I’m not sure if anyone has taken over yet.

“David Mehew was not only a great player, he was a good manager and is well respected and you don’t like to see managers leave so early in the season but he decided it wasn’t for him and walked away.

“They’ve shown a new lease of life since he left and it’s going to be a difficult game, it always is when you go there. If we want to get to where we want to be, it’s a game we’ve got to go and get something from.”

Despite Marine having yet to taste the bitterness of defeat this campaign, winning two and drawing two, as well as progressing in the FA Cup, Webb insists there is still more to come from his current crop.

Webb’s side have yet to win by more than one goal in the league this season and having seen what they are capable of on the training pitch, the Webbswood chief is just waiting for the game where the floodgates open.

“I know what this group are capable of and, even in the six games unbeaten, I know we can be better than we have shown already,” he added “It’s quite a scary thought for me that I know we can be better and when I see the tempo we play at in training, I know that we can take that into games.

“I have to give credit to all my players, they have been fantastic.”
