WINDSOR manager Mark Cooper believes his side produced some of their best football during his time at the club in the 3-2 win against Burnham in the Hellenic League Floodlit Cup on Tuesday night, writes Rob Stevens.

Windsor went into the tie having failed to beat their rivals in four previous attempts this season and without a win in their six previous matches in all competitions.

Cooper however insisted confidence within the camp was not low and his team backed up that thought to recover from falling a goal behind and win at Stag Meadow (click here for live match report).

Cooper told the Observer: “I’m delighted with the performance. The longer the first half went on the stronger we got, and I didn’t really want it to end because we were playing well.

“We came out for the second half and for 20 minutes we were brilliant. We created lots of chances and scored some good goals and were good value for the lead.

“I thought we were going to go on and win more comfortably but Burnham got their second, but then we saw the game out pretty well.

“The periods before and after half-time we were brilliant. We played some good football. We played with pace and energy and the best we’ve been for a while.

“We’ve had a tough period of games against Burnham. They’re a good side and have got a good management team and they do a lot of things right, but on the night, we deserved the win and we look forward to carrying on in the competition.”

A goal from Sam Coles gave Burnham the lead inside four minutes but Windsor went into the break on level terms thanks to a strike from debutant Bryan Taylor.

The hosts got their noses in front with goals from Billy Montague and Juwon Akintunde within 10 minutes of the second half, before Cameron Rohart-Brown pulled one back for The Blues.

Cooper continued: “I’m delighted with the win. It’s easy to say we keep on losing to Burnham and we have lost a few times, but they’ve got a big budget and we haven’t got a penny to pay.

“When you look at the closeness of the games, we’ve given a good account of ourselves and Burnham have got some very good players.

“We continue to work with the constraints we have and try to do as well as we can week-to-week.”

Windsor return to action in the Hellenic League Premier Division with a trip to third-placed Shrivenham this Saturday (3pm). Windsor currently stand in 14th position but a win could see them move back into the top 10 for Christmas.
