Neil Aspin said he was pleased his players put right the defeat to Colwyn Bay at the start of the season as they won the return fixture 3-0 in North Wales.

Goals from Lee Gregory, Gareth Seddon and Chris Worsley earned Town their tenth away league win of the season at Llanielian Road.

The Town boss said his players put in a professional performance to close the gap on third-placed Brackley to four points..

He said: “They beat us early in the season and I felt we had to put that right. To lose to them twice would have been particularly disappointing.

“You don’t get any easy games at Colwyn, we’ve had some tussles with them over the years and they’re fighting for their lives so it’s not as if they’ve got nothing to play for.

“It’s also a midweek game where you’ve got to travel and lads have been to work but the players were professional and they defended really well with a good line, the goalkeeper backed it up with a good performance when he was called into action, but all the players did well.

“We started the game well and at a good tempo and worked the keeper. We got a well deserved goal but the key to the game was the second goal, which killed the game dead and we deserved to win the game.

“We deserved to win the game against Brackley, but didn’t, but we’ve followed it up with a good win.”

Town have lost just three out of their 18 games since the turn of the year, with the victory at Colwyn their sixth in their last eight matches.

However, Aspin said his side should be boasting an even better record than that since the New Year’s Day defeat to Gainsborough.

He added: “I honestly think that since the Gainsborough game, where we played poorly, we should have won every game, certainly in the league.

“All the games where we’ve dropped points, we’ve dominated and been the better team and with a bit more luck, we could have won them all.

“We know what we’re trying to achieve and if we keep averaging the points we’re getting, we’ll certainly catch the teams in front of us and finish in the position we want to be in.”
