Three points is all that matters at this stage of the season and a delighted Gavin Cowan was happy as his AFC Telford United side delivered them once again.

The Bucks went two goals ahead thanks to Steph Morley in the first period, before Andre Brown lashed in a third to all but wrap things up early in the second half.

A late penalty cost Telford a clean sheet, but the win was secured and Cowan praised his men for keeping focus.

He said: "It was job done to get the three points and it is the most important thing at this stage of the season.

"Steph has that quality with a free kick, him and Brendon both do.

"They provide a big threat, and the second goal was really well worked and it was a great finish.

"Ryan Barnett did well again, he still has stuff to work on but one on one there is only one winner and he tore the full back apart."

The big news ahead of kick off was Daniel Udoh who was dropped to the bench.

But Cowan denied it was to rest him, but to stop him from picking up an injury after feeling a hamstring issue in recent weeks.


He added: "You say rested, but Daniel has been feeling his hamstring recently.

"We didn't think we needed to risk him, and the other lads came in and did well the other night.

"Andre gives us a different dimension and deserved his goal, and he could have had another."

Curzon came into the game in mid table with little to play for.


Cowan believes those sides, like the three Telford have left to play are the ones that can cause problems.

He said: "Every week the three points are important.

"The performance was good, it did fall flat but it was won early on and you have to create your own energy.

"Mid table sides are dangerous because they play with freedom.

"It doesn't matter if they win, it is personal pride."
