CARL Adams believes his Rugby Town side are finally reaping the rewards following a string of much-improved performances.
Valley secured a first win in the league since August after triumphing 3-0 at Bedworth United as Jordan Wilson scored a brace and Ryan Sahota completed the scoring at The Oval.
And after climbing out of the Northern Premier League Midlands relegation zone, Adams now hopes he can extend midfielder Caine Elliott’s loan after he provided two assists in the victory at Bedworth.
Adams said: “I think the improvement has been there for all to see recently and it’s finally brought the rewards it was due.
“We were clinical in the first half and then did really well to manage the game after the break.
“Even though we started to tire a little, we dug in and got ourselves a deserved clean sheet and could easily have extended the margin before the end.
“We’re hoping to extend Caine’s loan and we’ve appealed Barry [Fitzharris’s] sending-off, so we’ll know where we are at by the end of the week.
“We have options within the squad if we need cover, and we had already brought in a couple of young midfield prospects to have a look at in training.”
The two prospects in question, Justice Campbell and Omreike Myles, have signed league registration forms for Town.
And 23-year-old Campbell was part of Hereford’s National League North squad last season while 19-year-old Omreiki has already featured for Step Four Hartley Wintney this term.
Rugby are next in action away at Shepshed Dynamo on Saturday, November 11 with kick-off at 3pm at the Dovecote Stadium.
