Wendron United manager Jack Greenwood is hoping his side can put a run together after recording their first wins of the 2018/19 season.

After four successive defeats at the start of the campaign Dron have picked up two wins in a week, with last Saturday’s 3-1 win over Holsworthy being followed by Friday night’s 3-2 victory at Penzance in the Walter C Parson Cup first round.

Wendron fell behind twice at Penlee Park but roared back on both occasions with goals from Jack Stocker and Rory Jarvis, before Cameron Wheat popped up with a late header to send the visitors through.

Greenwood said: “I was worried that we would get complacent and think that we’d sort of cracked it and that we wouldn’t turn up against Penzance, especially when we went 1-0 down so early on.

“But we reacted really well which is something we didn’t do last year, normally if we conceded one we would concede another one quite quickly afterwards and the game would be beyond us quite quickly, whereas on Friday night I was really impressed with how we responded.

“It feels like it’s starting to come together a little bit more and the players are starting to develop a bit more of an understanding.

“I’m quite pleased with how the fixtures have fallen because I think if we beat Penzance and then had Holsworthy we probably would have turned up to the Holsworthy game thinking ‘this is going to be easy’ and we would have come unstuck.”

Wendron’s reward for their comeback cup win is a home tie against another fellow Division 1 West side Dobwalls in the second round, to be played on Saturday, October 20.

Greenwood will fancy his side’s chances of progressing after avoiding the Premier teams, although he is keen to avoid complacency.

He said: “It’s a tricky one with a cup game because you look at it and go ‘that’s a really good chance’.

“I mean no disrespect as Dobwalls will be saying the same about us but it’s a really good chance for us, especially at home, to progress to the next round and especially when you look at some of the other teams in the cup we’ve definitely avoided some of the big guns so that’s great.”

Falmouth Packet:

Dron do not play this weekend, but are back in cup action next Saturday, October 6, when they visit Combination League new-boys Lizard Argyle in the first round of the Cornwall Senior Cup (kick-off 2pm).

“It’s nice to have a bit of a break,” Greenwood said. “We don’t have a game this weekend which is a shame because we’ve got a bit of momentum at the moment.

“But that might not do us any harm because we’ve then got Lizard away and that’s not going to be an easy game at all. If we go into that complacent then again that’s another game where they’ll be bang up for it and we’ll soon come unstuck.”

Until then Greenwood is determined to enjoy the high of the recent results, after admitting that the string of early-season defeats was difficult to take.

“I’ve sort of got the buzz back for it a bit more now,” he said. “Winning games is good and it makes your week so much easier. You don’t over-analyse things, you don’t think ‘right, do I go back to the drawing board, do I change the formation, do I change the approach, do I change the players’.

“I really want to concentrate on us now having a bit of a run and being a side that teams go ‘actually we’re going to have to watch out for them’ because I’m almost certain that teams look at us and go ‘right, if we get at them they’ll be an easy side to play against’ and I want to try and change that mentality.”
