STOURPORT Swifts boss Mark Phillips was relieved to see side get back on track with a 1-0 win over Southam on Tuesday night.

Joe Phillips bagged a 30thminute goal, which was enough to clinch all three points and seal a first Midlands Premier win in a month.

Victory followed a 0-0 draw at struggling Dunkirk.

Phillips said: “We dominated both games but we could not take our chances.

“That’s been a familiar story in recent weeks, we’ve tend to look in control but not sharp enough up front.

“But it’s good to get this win and end our winless run.”

Swifts’ poor run of results coincided with an injury to Ben Maund, who has missed several games after severely cutting his finger at work.

He looks set to be sidelined for another month.

The manager said: “Ben has been missed but I had a chat with his and he’s hopeful to be back soon.

“We’ve had Joe playing up front and he’s done well, he can hold the ball up but I think he and Ben would forge a strong partnership.”

Jamie Hyde is a doubt for Saturday’s home clash against second-placed Heanor (3pm kick-off).
