THAT was much more like the Cirencester Town I know, but the first win has been a long time coming.

We went about it in a different way and I thought we were very good value for the win.

We were 4-3-3 going forward, with Mike Tambling, who showed a lot of energy, and new signing Jon Else supporting David Murphy from the wide areas, and 4-5-1 when we were defending.

Jon is a natural wide man and did well on his debut. He has got plenty of trickery and I am glad we were able to entice him to come as he has a good pedigree.

It is no coincidence that having the two wide men has helped us out defensively and helped with our first clean sheet. Both Neil Arndale and Richard Mansell can both defend and get forward, but in our earlier games all our width was coming from the full backs.

The emphasis was on them to get forward and I think they forgot to defend. Now that there is more width in front of them, the pressure is off to get forward.

Whether we can play that way at home is another question.

Mike Green never had a save to make because they all played so well in front of him.

Of course, we have done nothing yet and we are not going to get carried away – but it is a starting point. And if we can get two wins from our next two games, the bad start will be forgotten.

The last time Eggy scored one like that was in the play-off final. He tries it on numerous occasions, but this time he took it down well on his chest and got a very good strike away.

I have talked to the midfielders about getting forward and getting more goals so it was pleasing that both goals came from that area.
