MELKSHAM Town manager Kieran Baggs says normal service was resumed at the weekend as his side picked up all three points at Brislington.

New signing Francois Allen got the ball rolling for the home side, when he notched his second goal in as many games for the club to hand them a 13th-minute lead.

Baggs also opted to hand a first-team debut to teenager Seth Wain before Gary Higdon wrapped up the win with a second-half strike.

Seven days after their 2-2 draw with Bitton, Baggs says he was glad to see his troops get back to winning ways at the first time of asking.

“The performance wasn’t good enough against Bitton and the players knew that, we were lucky to get a draw,” said Baggs.

“The pitch played a massive part, Bitton were desperate to get the game on and you can see why because the pitch was a bit of a leveller.

“This weekend it was a routine three points with a 2-0 win, it sets us up to go into the FA Vase game on the back of a win, which is always good.

“You aren’t going to play well every week and every player at this level knows that. It’s important you get that reality check sometimes, it has made the lads more concentrated.”

This weekend presents an opportunity for Melksham to book their place in the quarter-finals of the FA Vase, should they see off Tring Athletic at Oakfields this weekend.

Following their win last Saturday, Baggs is hopeful the club can do the business in front of a bumper crowd.

“The players all know that they can’t just turn up this weekend. It is a massive game for the club, the town and the whole community,” he added.

“It’s important the players realise that and make sure they’re fully prepared because we want to be as prepared as we can be to give us the best chance of going through.

“League form does go out of the window, but if we were going in on a loss the morale might have been a bit down.

“Playing in front of a massive crowd will give us confidence, we have been well supported.
