SHRIVENHAM manager Gareth Davies says there is still plenty of room for improvement from his side as they look to make it three wins in a row this evening.

Shrivvy claimed a thrilling 3-2 success at home to Milton United in the FA Vase last Friday night, having thrashed local rivals Fairford Town 5-1 in the Hellenic League Premier Division prior to that.

Davies’ side are back in league action this evening when they welcome Tuffley Rovers to Barrington Park.

Shrivenham’s league record for the 2019-20 campaign currently stands at two wins and two defeats from four games.

Alongside their success over Fairford, Shrivvy’s other league win also came in a local derby as they won 3-2 at Royal Wootton Bassett Town in early August.

Although content with initial results, Davies believes things could be going even better.

“We have set our stall out and we want to win every game we are involved in and I think we have been a bit sluggish of late,” said Davies.

“We have been right at it for the two derby games we have been involved in.

“But in the other games, we have not really reached anywhere near the levels that are expected.

“We are still only just into September, so I would like to think we will find our rhythm a bit more and things will pick up.”

This evening’s match is Shrivenham’s 10th of the season across four difference competitions since the campaign began just under a month ago on August 3.

Davies has had to utilise his squad given the rapid turnaround between fixtures, and he has been pleased to get strong contributions right across the board.

“The games have been coming thick and fast but I think the squad have been coping quite well with it all,” said Davies.

“We are having to manage some of the players because a few of the older lads can’t do two games in a short space of time.

“It is just a case of getting the right amount of minutes for everyone. At the moment, it is working out quite nicely.

“Hopefully that can continue.”

Elsewhere, Fairford will be looking to make it four wins from five league games when they host Longlevens.

Jody Bevan’s side are third in the table, although they cannot climb to the top even with another win as they are four points behind Binfield.

By contrast, Bassett go on the lookout for their maiden league success this term when they host Westfields.

Sam Collier’s side have only one point to their name, although that has come from just two games.
