Portishead Town FC will now look to extend their winning streak on Tuesday after scrapping out an important 1-0 win against Radstock Town.

The win on the weekend moved Portishead up in to second in the table, a place above Radstock and only two points off the league leaders Wincanton Town, with four games in hand against them.

They face a tough match up in seventh place Brislington FC, who will be trying to stop Portishead’s unbeaten run which has been going since boxing day 2023.

When it came to his team’s performance against Radstock, player manager Kye Mountford said: “The lads have done exactly what I asked for today.

“They’ve dug in against a real horrible team who were very chirpy, masters of the dark arts so to perform like we did I’m very proud of them.”

After a big win against a fellow title contender the Portishead squad could be forgiven for getting carried away, but Mountford insists there will be no thought of silverware just yet.

He said: “There’s no looking at the league table here, we look at the next match, check out all the lads to see if there are any strains and then we go again.

“It’s on to Tuesday and Brislington away which is for me one of the hardest games of the season.

“I think they’re one of the best teams in the league, but we’ve got to go there and win another three points.

“You can’t think of anything else we’ve just got to think about the next game.”

Portishead number 10 Kyle Egan, who was all over the pitch against Radstock agreed with his manager’s sentiments of only looking at games right in front of them.

He said: “It’s another challenge for us so hopefully we can just go and impose our game and pick up another three points.

“It’s the business end of the season so we just need to pick up all the points we can. If that means winning a bit ugly like against Radstock, having to dig in, we can.

“Or if it’s playing nice football and putting the game to bed early, we can do it that way too.”

Portishead Town face Brislington away on Tuesday 26th, and then have another trip to Bristol on Friday 29th to battle it out against Cribbs reserves, two must win matches against similarly positioned title contenders.
