CALNE co-boss Ben Redford believes the real Lilywhites are finally coming to the fore after they inflicted a sixth straight Toolstation First Division defeat on former leaders Bristol Telephones on Saturday.

Town picked up their first league win since the middle of last month as Rory Worthington and Stuart Windsor scored in the second half in Bristol, the home side halving their deficit in the dying moments.

Redford’s side have now lost just once in the last seven league matches and the joint-manager said: “Every time we beat one of these sides it moves us a little way further away from the bottom of the table.

“We played them (Telephones) at our place in the second game of the season (a 3-2 defeat) and I thought that they were the real deal, but they’ve lost something like eight our of the last nine so it was a good time to play them.

“These are the teams we should bew competing with and it was a good result for us.’’

Elsewhere, Robbie Tripp’s goal wasn’t enough for Corsham Town, who lost 2-1 at home to Roman Glass St George and had Leigh Rogers sent off, while Chippenham Park drew 0-0 at Ashton & Backwell United.

Malmesbury Victoria emerged from their Wiltshire derby against Warminster Town with a 2-1 victory, courtesy of strikes from Jamie Packer and George Peare. Eben Mortimer-Taylor replied for Warminster.

Devizes Town drew 1-1 at Sherborne Town.
