STOURPORT Swifts got back on track in the Midlands Premier on Tuesday night with a 1-0 win at Walsall Wood.

Liam Williams bagged a second-half winner as Swifts bounced back from Saturday’s 3-0 home defeat to Quorn last Saturday.

Manager Mark Phillips said: “We played very well and got a good result against a decent Walsall Wood side.

“It was tight in the second half but we took control and when Ben Maund’s shot was parried, Liam was on hand to score.

“The defeat to Quorn was a surprise, we had drawn at their place last week and were only denied a win by a late goal.

“I think there was a hangover from that and we didn’t play well but the defeat was a bit harsh.

“We started the second half well and had two or three chances but then we conceded a sloppy goal. We panicked a bit and couldn’t keep the ball and got caught out.”

Phillips hailed the impact of on-loan Stourbridge midfielder Drew Canavan, who has played in the last two games.

The gifted play maker has just returned from injury but needs game time under his belt.

The Swifts boss said: “Drew’s an excellent player and a nice lad, he’s fitted in well with the squad."

“I believe in having a small squad but we’ve got so many games coming up I felt we needed some extra cover.”
