Bunyard hoping Paulton can cap a good week with another victory
NICK Bunyard has called on his Paulton Rovers players to continue with their good run of form after two wins and two clean sheets in as many games.
Paulton, who won only their second game of the season last weekend against Sholing, followed it up with a 3-0 victory away at Chippenham Town in the first round of the Red Insure Cup in midweek, and boss Bunyard wants the team to continue to show defensive solidarity when they go to Hungerford Town this weekend, Paulton's second of three consecutive away games.
Bunyard said: "Two wins and two cleans sheets is good platform to build on. We are starting to show good continuity at the back with some tough away games coming up."
Rovers follow their game with Hungerford with another tough away game away at Merthyr Town three days later, a match that boss Bunyard believes will be a physical encounter.

He said: "Merthyr is always a tough game, they are a very physical side, but we'll be looking to keep our defensive positioning and not get bullied."
Paulton are again hoping to show a threat going forward after scoring five without reply in their last two games.
Bunyard said: "We look a lot better going forward, the strikers have confidence and the belief is high in the dressing room."
For the Hungerford game, Paulton will again be without Josh Jeffries, pictured, and Lee Collier through injury.
Clevedon Town manager Mickey Bell believes his side can build on their victory last weekend against Wimbourne when they travel to Sholing this weekend.
Clevedon have had a mixed start to the season, but manager Bell believes his squad are better than results have shown.
He said: "We have had good, encouraging performances and looked confident going forward."
Clevedon follow their away trip to Sholing with a trip to Mangotsfield United in the first round of the Red Insure Cup on Monday.
Bell said: "We try to win every game and keep momentum going. We are trying to bring in a few new players to help us do this."
Mangotsfield United travel to Shortwood United hoping for more success, following their midweek win at Gloucester City in the GFA Senior Challenge Trophy.
Tytherington Rocks return to action at Lambourn Sports tomorrow, having beaten Hellenic League Division One & West leaders Brimscombe & Thrupp on their last outing.
Last season's champions can launch themselves firmly back into the mix at the top of the table with a couple of victories.
And manager Gary Powell said: "This is a game I'm desperate to win. After beating Brimscombe, another win this weekend would really push us on to near where we want to be."
Tytherington are without the suspended Dale Emery, while Kevin Freeman replaces Tom Shepherd in goal.
