Hayes & Yeading 2-1 Weston-super Mare
HAYES & Yeading United boss Nas Bashir believes there is more to come from a side after his side made it four games unbeaten with a 2-1 win over Weston-super Mare.
Bashir praised the players involved at Kingfield on Saturday and pointed to five first-team members that are still to come back into the reckoning.
Early goals from Adam Bygrave and Tom Cadmore put the home side 2-0 up inside 14 minutes.
And after conceding before half time, United put in a strong defensive display after the break to take maximum points.
“We had a lot of big hitters out – Mark Bentley, Luke Williams, Pelé, Jerome Anderson, Dan Wishart was on the bench with a hamstring problem,” Bashir said.
“We need to get them fit. The boys in the team took their chance, and I've said if you play well and we win, you keep the shirt.
“Competition for places is better now and we've got eight games in 24 days, a lot of points to pick up, and I'm confident in the players.”
Bashir was particularly pleased with Bygrave's performance, linking the unbeaten run with the tough tackling defender's return to the club.
The 23-year-old showed his worth at the other end too, smashing in a low shot in the seventh minute after Weston failed to clear a free kick.
United’s second also came from a set-piece, Cadmore heading in a corner at the back post.
It was no surprise when Dayle Grubb grabbed them a goal back in the 38th minute when United took their foot off the gas.
Either side of the break goalkeeper Brandon Hall made fine saves to keep United ahead, but Weston were reduced to half-chances in the last half hour.
“I think overall we deserved it,” Bashir added. “We got off to a good start, got two goals in front, then got a little bit complacent. They had chances and Brandon made good saves - it could easily have been 2-2 at half-time.
“In the second half, we went out with a different approach and I thought we were the better team.”
