Aylesbury United manager Tony Joyce has heaped praise on star striker Stacey Field after his latest wonder strike against league leaders Barton Rovers.
The United boss was particularly pleased with Field’s equaliser which came on 74 minutes against Rovers last time out. Field took an aerial pass in his stride before producing a fine lob which went over the head of the Barton keeper.
Joyce was full of praise for the quality of the strike saying: “It was an excellent lob and I wasn’t aware he had that skill in his locker.
“It’s not something we’ve been practising in training, and it just shows how talented he is.”
The United boss dismissed suggestions that the side were becoming over-reliant on Field for goals, despite the fact he is the only Ducks player to have hit double figures on the scoring charts this season.
He said: “Although Jason Blackett has been out for the last couple of weeks, we hope to have him back for Saturday.
“When he has played, he has scored some good goals and he has filled in quite ably when Stacey has been out this season.”
Meanwhile, two new home fixtures have been arranged for the Ducks in January.
In the Calor League Division One Central, Aylesbury United will face Daventry Town on Wednesday January 29 and Chesham United will visit in the Berks and Bucks Senior Cup semi-final a week earlier on Wednesday January 22.
Both matches will kick off at Bell Close at 7.45pm.
