Malmesbury Victoria boss Andy Wicks believes there are plenty of reasons to be excited at the Flying Monk.

The Vics have endured a slightly frustrating time as last weekend's Supplementary Cup fixture against North Leigh United was postponed as their opponents couldn't raise a team.

They have also been unable to train on their pitch over winter due to the weather as they look to protect it for matches.

Wicks is still happy with how things are going so far and believes there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic.

"We're doing well," he said. "We've got a good balance here and we've got players coming back.

"Andy Baker's scored four in two since returning, Sam Parker's back so hopefully he'll start firing on all cylinders again.

"Shane Bumphrey up front is different gravy as well.

"I said to our secretary imagine when we're training on our pitch how well we'll be doing so there's exciting times ahead."

Malmesbury will be back in league action this weekend when they take on Pewsey Vale at home.

Wicks' side have scored 19 goals in their last three games and the Malmesbury chief is hoping to continue in a similar vein.

"We've got goals in us so I'll never set up to sit back or defend," Wicks explained.

"It'll be good to get back into league action, hopefully there weather holds off because the frosts are coming but we're looking forward to it.

"I wasn't here the last time we played Pewsey so I don't know a lot about them but as I always say, I don't really focus on the opposition."

Malmesbury are currently sixth in Hellenic League Division One West and they could climb to fourth with victory on Saturday.

Opponents Pewsey Vale are ninth.

Elsewhere, Malmesbury Victoria Development drew 2-2 away at Kintbury Rangers in Wiltshire Senior League.

Lewis King and Gareth Jones got on the scoresheet for Malmesbury.
