Midfielder feels Stutes can turn the corner

Ross Munro is hoping that Histon’s victory over fellow strugglers Petersfield Town can act as the catalyst to get them out of trouble in Evo-Stik League Southern, Division One Central.

The central midfielder was one of the key performers in the 2-1 victory as he continues to make the adjustment to the higher level after making the step up from the Ridgeons League.

Ben Yeomans and Tommy Wright were the scorers for Histon in what was a dominant performance, but they were made to sweat in the final stages after Petersfield pulled back a penalty, which was actually conceded by Munro.

But the scenes of delight on the final whistle as Histon picked up their first points of the campaign at home showed just what it meant to the squad.

“It was a massive win, huge,” said Munro, who had a year off football last season before joining Mildenhall at the start of the current campaign.

“We will hopefully just keep going on it. We have a game in hand so we might get out of it, you never know.

“It’s been really good. We’ve been so close to getting a result, it’s just a little bit off the pace.

“We’re getting there, we’ve turned the corner. We’ve still got the games to get going and get out of it, I think we will be alright.

“It’s a good division and our performances have been really good, it’s just little things have been slightly off. They are tiny little mistakes and if we cut them out, we will get well out of it.

“We’re getting a few more players in and we’re all gelling together now, and there’s a good spirit going.”

Yeomans is another to have made the step up, and he showed plenty of calmness to score the opening goal.

And he has also set his sights on climbing up the table.

“It was massive, absolutely massive,” he said. “We knew coming into the game it was a six-pointer and getting the result over at their place meant that we could build on it and get a result here.

“We’ve got Aylesbury within the next couple of weeks as well which is another huge game so it’s just good to build some momentum in preparation for that.”

And the belief of both players was further justified in midweek, when Histon recovered from a goal down against AFC Dunstable to win 2-1, with Elkanah Sibanda and Shaun Jenkins on target.
