Rob Edwards is delighted with how his AFC Telford United players have proved themselves in high-pressure circumstances, stating: “They’ve really stood up and been counted.”

The Bucks are on the verge of National League North survival after winning 1-0 at Blyth Spartans on Tuesday. They are 16th, four points clear of the drop zone, and could confirm safety as they host third bottom Gainsborough Trinity on Saturday.

“We’ve kept things really simple as coaching staff, but it’s the players who have to go out there and do it,” said Edwards when asked why his players have coped so well as of late. “They’ve really stood up and been counted, fought in every single game.

“Even the games which we’ve lost recently, it’s only been by the odd goal and against teams gunning for the play-offs – we’ve been right in them. There’s been nine really consistent performances in a row, which is good.

“It’s been much-needed, getting these performances at a crucial time.”
