Ford looks for United to make their point

Royston Town v Banbury United

Banbury United boss Mike Ford is looking for his side to retain their mental approach for another test on the road. The Puritans head to Royston Town for Saturday’s Evo-Stik League South clash looking to make their point again.

With last weekend’s premier division central fixture with Redditch United being postponed, it means United will be on the road for three games running as they make the long trip to Lowestoft Town the following weekend. Ford said: “We went to Rushden & Diamonds with a good mentality, to protect the point we had before the game and come home with it in the worst case. “Nothing will be different on Saturday, even though Rushden were on the fringes of the playoffs.”

He said: “I know they’re mid-table but I’m sure Royston will go on a good run at some stage so I just want it to be after we’ve played them on Saturday! “We’ve got a good balance to the squad now, we’re playing well and we’re in a good place at the moment.

“I’m happy with this group of players, in hindsight, I may have changed things too soon earlier in the season. “You are always looking to push your team on so when you get a couple of defeats you start to question your judgement and the players. “Sometimes, not making a change can have the same effect on the team but at the moment I’ve got no intention of changing the team around.”
