MARK Phillips made no secret of his delight after Stourport Swifts came from behind to beat high flying AFC Wulfrunians 2-1 and register only their second victory in 10 games, writes Nick Pullen.

Playing on a near perfect Castlecroft pitch, Swifts cancelled out an opening goal by Wulfs prolific Non League player Jake Sedgemore when Ben Maund converted Jack Bailey's cross before James Hill hammered home a thunderous 20 yard winner with 12 minutes remaining.

Phillips revealed: "We had a team meeting on Thursday and quite a few things were said. We'd fallen well short in our previous two games, especially in the first half against Bewdley Town.

"I changed the shape of the side and we played very well. The state of the pitch really suited us.

"What pleased me the most was the fact we went a goal down and still won. Normally, if we don't get the first goal, then we're in trouble.

"But that's what you get with a young side. Sometimes it's a question of attitude and confidence.

"Wulfs were a very decent side and I was relieved and somewhat surprised that they didn't bring prolific striker Ricky Anslow on until late in the game, because he certainly looked lively."

Swifts will find themselves put to the test over the next two games when they face a couple of Midland League title contenders.

They host much fancied Alvechurch on Saturday at Walshes Meadow and then visit Sporting Khalsa the following Saturday.

To make matters worse, Swifts could be without central defender Paul Hurrell through injury after he limped off early in the second half against Wulfs.
