Aylesbury FC manager Craig Faulconbridge says he can’t praise his players enough for their recent performances going into today’s (Saturday) home match against Dunstable Town.

The Moles were desperately unlucky not to take a point from high-flying Barton when they lost 3-2 with the last kick of the game on Tuesday night.

The undeserved defeat followed the FA Cup win over Thatcham where FC were down to 10 men which came hot on the heels of the huge derby day victory over Aylesbury United.

Despite defeat last time out Faulconbridge said his players should be proud.

“We know we haven’t had the greatest of starts to the season. But what has pleased me is following up the Bank Holiday win with another win in another big game,” he said.

“I have been very humbled by recent performances.”

And the Moles boss wants his players to show the same application against Dunstable.

“The players have shown me such a good attitude towards team ethic,” Faulconbridge added.

“We seriously only take one game at a time and each game is our next cup final.

“It is our next big one and we have to approach every single game how we have the Aylesbury United and Thatcham matches.

“With that level of desire and commitment we won’t be beaten and if we are it will be by a better team than us, which I don’t believe these teams are.”
