WESTBURY United joint-manager Neil Kirkpatrick said his side’s 3-0 Toolstation League Premier Division win over Roman Glass St George on Saturday “could have been six or seven” as they responded positively to their second defeat of the season, writes JONATHAN LEIGHFIELD.

In their first fixture of 2019, United lost 2-1 to Bridgwater Town in a crunch tie at the top, but bounced straight back at Meadow Lane at the weekend as two goals from Dan Kovacs was added to by Jamie Jordan.

Since losing their first league game in more than a year over Chirtmas, Westbury have wobbled of late – failing to put consecutive wins together – but never looked in any danger against Roman Glass.

Kirkpatrick paid tribute to the visiting goalkeeper, while reaffirming his side’s commitment to play in the same style even after their milestone loss.

He said: “It was more than comfortable for us. Their goalkeeper was superb as well – if it wasn’t for him, it could have been six or seven quite easily.

“We started really well and got our noses in front, but in the last 15 minutes of the first half we were a bit disappointing.

“We got them in at half-time and told them what we expected and they were bang at it for the full 45 minutes.

“Their goalkeeper was outstanding, whereas I can’t remember our lad having a save to make, if I’m honest.

“We haven’t played any differently since losing – we go out to win every game and we’ll continue to try our best to win every game.”

Westbury were due to be back in action on Wednesday night as they travelled to leaders Willand Rovers, looking to go level on points with the Devon outfit.

Meanwhile, Wayne Thorne’s Bradford Town fought back three times to secure a point away at Shepton Mallet as they drew 4-4 on Saturday.

Two own goals were sandwiched by a Jamie Lyons tap-in for the visitors before Will Hailstone popped up in the 90th minute to steal a point for the Bobcats.

Town also drew 1-1 on Tuesday night as they made the short trip across to Odd Down, looking to extend their impressive unbeaten run.

Matt Morris scored early on for Bradford, however, the Bobcats were unable to hold on and Ash McGrane secured the home side’s first league draw.

The stalemate continues Bradford’s unbeaten run that stretches back over eight games to late November.
