WESTBURY United boss Neil Kirkpatrick is taking nothing for granted as his men prepare for a three-way promotion battle in the Toolstation League First Division.

United put five past Bristol Telephones on Saturday in a fiery contest, leaving Kirkpatrick’s side with a one-point lead at the top of the table.

A home fixture against eighth-placed Chard Town is Kirkpatrick’s next challenge as his men adopt a ‘game by game’ approach to the final dozen fixtures.

He said: “Not all of us are going to go up.

“It’s cliche but we’ll be taking it one game at a time.

“We’ve dropped points against low teams this season and we highlighted that at training.”

“It (Bristol Telephones) was an intimidating place to play.

“But the lads didn’t get involved in anything, didn’t react, and thoroughly deserved the three points.

“Saturday will be a tough game. Chard were the much better side for most of the game when we last played them.

“But if we do the simple things right we’ve got a chance.”

Elsewhere in Division One Warminster’s relegation battle continued with two defeats.

Mark Breffit’s men were edged out in a one-goal contest at home to Buckland Athletic on Saturday before suffering a three-goal loss at Radstock Town on Tuesday night.

The results leave Warminster two points clear of bottom club Portishead on 23 points from 29 fixtures.

Corsham also suffered defeat on Saturday and were leapfrogged by Almondsbury.

Lewis Sheppard and Keelan Mastouras found the back of the net as Corsham let a first-half lead slip.
