DIRECTOR of football Andy Preece was delighted to complete a double over Aberystwyth Town and to keep a clean sheet.

"It's a good three points, they are a tough team to keep out, they've got so many striking options and any time you keep Chris Venables quiet, Rhys Griffiths and Jamie Reed, they've all been top scorers in this league and scored goals for fun.

"So with those three in they are always a threat, but I thought we defended really well today.

"I'm never really worried about going against the wind so, although we were only one-nil up and probably had more chances to go two or three, I was still confident going into the second half, against the wind, we were better than we had been in the first half.

"Last week's result at Bangor was disappointing but, if you look at the last four games, we've got nine points so we'e on a good run at the minute, a couple of clean sheets in there and we've played some of the tough sides as well.

"It probably looked comfortable from the sidelines, but they always ask questions of you and any balls put in the box with Jones and Griffiths, who are really good in the air, we had to be really strong and we dealt with that really well.

"On the break we looked really lively, so it's all positives from today's performance."

Ryan Wade grabbed both of the goals in the 2-0 win and Preece added: "We need him to get into the box a little bit more, he tends to hang out at the far post, and we want him to get across the full back and for both goals he was near the centre of the goal.

"Two good finishes, he's probably had better days and not gone anything so it's nice to see him get some rewards for his performances previously.

"The clean sheet was important, we've swapped and changed - probably it's where our inconsistency comes from, apart from the first three games we haven't had two centre halves together all season, someone's been out and Jordan Barrow's had to do a job for us, so I think sometimes you do get found out but they were great again today"
