Shaymen are aiming for back to back away wins

Things always look better after a win and that is certainly the case as far as Town are concerned.

They will be bidding for back to back away wins when they go to Worcester tomorrow buoyed by their success at Blyth in midweek.

And the good thing about the 3-2 victory in the north east is that it was achieved despite the fact that the Shaymen were still not at their best.

They were certainly better in attack, taking their chances - and they had to as the defence once again misfired at vital times.

The goals, especially the opener from Tom Baker and the winner from Jamie Vardy, were impressive.

But, as boss Neil Aspin said after the game, they cannot rely on such great goals in every game and they simply have to tighten up at the back.

Fortunately they have unearthed a keeper in Simon Eastwood who appears destined for big things.

His career had been stalling as he was forced to play second fiddle at Oxford in League Two.

And he has taken his chance to play senior games with the Shaymen with both hands.

If anyone deserves a better record than having conceded five in two games it is him.

Worcester City have started, like Town, with three points from two games.

Last weekend they went down 2-1 at Hyde - a side that has won two out of two - after going two down inside the opening half hour.

They responded well in midweek by beating Vauxhall Motors - the side propping up the rest after the opening week - 2-0.

Of course it is far too early in the campaign to be analysing league positions, although that might not be the case for the sides with 100 per cent records.

Interestingly, should Town pick up another win they would be two points better off than they were after three games last season in the Evo Stik Premier and we all know what happened in the rest of the season.
