Windsor FC boss Mark Cooper concerned for leaky defence

Windsor FC have been prolific in front of goal, scoring 11 in their past three games, but it’s the goals conceded that has concerned manager Mark Cooper.

The Royalists hosted Shrivenham on Saturday in a thrilling game that had the home team score two late goals from Ive and Lazarczuk, to win 4-2.

They travelled to Wilks Park three days later, unable to repeat the success on the road against Flackwell Heath, narrowly losing 3-2, Gould and Ive on target for Windsor.

The results have been tainted by conceding ‘too many sloppy goals’ which could have been avoided, says Cooper.

“Shrivenham were a strong side so to get the win there was very encouraging,” he said.

“But we gave away two sloppy goals and it’s becoming a theme for us this season.

“We have to stop leaking soft goals. We’re always going to score enough to be successful in the league so the emphasis is now very much on cutting out the mistakes that we’re making.”

The Royalists travel to Burnham for the Challenge Cup on Saturday, September, 28, for a 3pm kickoff.

The match will give Cooper an opportunity to try a new tactic but the boss is adamant the formation isn’t the problem.

“We’re comfortable with the formation we’re playing. We need to keep clean sheets, and we will look to bring in players to help with that,” he said.
