March Town manager Ashley Taylor wants more of the same against Whitton United after his side beat Walsham Le Willows last weekend
March Town boss Ashley Taylor will be looking for more of the same this weekend after his side showcased their full capabilities in a stunning win on Saturday.
The Hares travelled to fifth-placed Walsham Le Willows and came away with a 3-1 victory after goals from Jack Friend, Jack Frohawk and Craig Gillies.
They face another away trip this weekend against Whitton United, and Taylor is looking to close in on a top-ten spot in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division.
“It gives us confidence,” he said.
“We know the big thing now is trying to be consistent with it. You don’t want to go two steps forward and two steps back.
“So we know Saturday is going to be a challenge, as it always is away. But we’ve got some faith there in the group, so I’m confident of getting a result.”
March’s victory against Walsham was their first away win of the season, and Taylor believes it could represent a big moment in the campaign.
“It was a fantastic win. It had been coming,” he said.
“It was more special going to a team that is fourth in the league than some wins at home. We thoroughly deserved it on Saturday.
“I think when you look at our last few away games, we had two draws. So it was an improvement.
“I think it was just a case of understanding that to go away from home is even harder. You have to earn the right to win.
“The opposition are obviously better than what the boys have been facing before, so the big thing was that it was a massive collective effort.
“They worked tremendously hard for the team and everyone, to a man, was superb. Even the subs that came on were superb.”
In the grand scheme of things, Taylor was impressed with the way his side went about their business - even if they did suffer a scare early in the second half.
“In the first half we were the better team, and obviously got the two goals,” he said.
“We had other opportunities to maybe get the third goal, and every time we went forward we looked dangerous.
“Second half we have a 1v1 and the goalkeeper makes a brilliant save, and they run up with their first chance and score.
“We’d prepared ourselves for it. They put us under immense pressure, but we put our bodies on the line and we countered and Jack Friend scored a great third.”
