Banbury United boss Mike Ford has his sights set on a top six finish despite his side having a lot of ground to make up.

Like most Evo-Stik Southern League teams, the Puritans had a blank weekend instead of completing two more premier division fixtures in three days. Saturday’s trip to Frome Town was postponed followed by Monday’s derby with Stratford Town.

He said: “A lot of teams will be in a similar position to us so I don’t want to use the busy period of games as an excuse. We just have to take it one game at a time and, if we do, I can’t see any reason why we can’t continue this good run.”
