Jack Wells was a happy man after seeing his Aylesbury United side win a huge six-pointer in the SPL Division One Central on Saturday.

The 2-0 win over bottom-of-the-table Barton Rovers, secured thanks to a superb curling effort by Sonny French in the first-half and Tyriq Hunte’s strike in second-half stoppage time, lifted the Ducks two places in the table and five points clear of Rovers in the relegation zone.

And Wells felt the performance was the culmination of lots of hard work since his arrival at the club.

He said after the game: “We’ve said for the last month or so that we’ve really turned a corner and certainly I think we’re getting to where we want to be.

"It’s been hard at the football club in the last couple of months – going through a transition half way through a season is really hard so those three points are for everyone who has stuck by us.

"The supporters again were incredible, the board have been fantastic with me and patient and allowed me to get on with what I’ve needed to get on with, and the players – again it’s not been easy when a new gaffer comes in with different ideas – have worked really hard.”

On the game itself, Wells felt his side deserved the points.

He said: “I thought in the first-half we were very good and deserving of our lead. In the second I thought we might want to use the hill a bit more and make them defend but I didn’t think we did that maybe as well as Barton did in the first-half.

"But I didn’t think there was really any point where I felt we were really in any trouble. It’s one of those games where I don’t really want to dissect it, I just want to take the three points and enjoy them.”

Aylesbury now have two games in four days ahead with the visit of Hertford Town on Saturday, who sit two places and six points above Aylesbury in the table, then a trip to Hadley next Tuesday night who are tenth and seven points off a play-off place.

Wells added: “We’re getting to where we knew we would be and it was really important over the last two or three weeks that we picked up the points when we did, have created a bit of momentum and can keep going through a really important period.”
