Speaking after Saturday’s 3-1 win over Slimbridge, manager Barry Yeo was full of praise for his side and the returning Shaun Copp.

Barnstaple Town manager Barry Yeo wants his side to enjoy their remaining games as the Southern League season enters its final month.

Barum were 3-1 winners over Slimbridge on Saturday afternoon in Division One South and West.

Shaun Copp and Kyle Paine gave them a 2-0 half-time lead, before James Blake's injury time lob sealed three points. Adam Mace had made it 2-1 with a well-taken goal in the second half.

"It was competitive and it had an edge about it," said Yeo.

"We want to enjoy as many games as we can and we want to get as many points as we can and I thought today we started very well.

"At half-time I said it was about being complacent, and we were a little bit complacent in the second half, we weren't at it enough, but I'm being critical at times.

"I think to win 3-1 is a great result."

Yeo was also full of praise for Copp, who celebrated his first start for Barnstaple since January 28 with a well-taken goal.

"It's great to have him back," Yeo said after Saturday's game.

"I feel sorry for him, because he gets a run of games and with his lung it's cost him a little bit, but its great to have him back in the fold. He gives you great quality, great energy, he's got two great feet and he's scored again today.

"That's two in two for him so to have him back is fantastic.

"We're delighted with him and he'll be looking forward to the rest of the season, especially with the games we've got coming up, so it was good to have him back."

The season resumes for Barnstaple Town on Tuesday night, with a long journey to North Leigh, and Yeo will be hoping his side can kick on from back-to-back wins.

"We've turned them over here and they'll be looking to turn us over," he said.

"It's another game of football. The lads have got to go and enjoy themselves now for the next four or five games and we'll try and get a positive result and keep the run going.

"That's two in two now, if we can get another one it'll be quite nice.

"We've still got goals we want to reach and hopefully we can reach them."
