Manager Scott Bartlett says Weston-super-Mare AFC "need to get back to winning ways" when they entertain Worthing in the National League South at The Optima Stadium this Saturday at 3pm.

Despite being winless in their last three league games, since beating Torquay United 3-2 last month, Bartlett added that his side are "not a million miles off" from achieving that.

"We need to get back to winning ways, we are not a million miles off," he told Weston AFC's social media channels after their 9-0 win against Hengrove Athletic.

"We are inches away from being a really good side at this level and we won't change we just have to get better at what we are doing.

"Tonight was another step forward in that. I know we are playing against inferior opposition at a completely different step to us at the moment.

"But the attitude and application is the first thing you look for and I thought it was great tonight. So, our last four performances have been really good and warranted more points.

"It is our job to make sure that we find a way to do that. We are obviously and the Worthing game will be a good one.

"I know their captain Aaran Racine really well he's actually out injured at the moment but they are a good passing team and it will be a tough test for us but it is one we are looking forward to."

Bartlett said he was "delighted" with the application shown by his players against the Grove.

Rex Mannings scored four times, alongside two goals from Oscar Collins, Marlon Jackson and one from Jason Pope to seal a place in the next round.

"It is always different depending on what round, where you are a club physically with the game structure you have got coming up in your own league," he added.

"So, we decided we would be better coming off the 3G for training and playing a game instead.

"So, I was delighted with the players application. It was never really in question anyway but I thought the senior players went about their work brilliantly tonight. It was a really good exercise actually.

"We managed to get some minutes into a few boys that needed it and we managed to have a sprinkling of the Academy boys so it was good."
