HIGH flying Fairfield Villa made it six straight wins with an impressive 2-0 success at Bloxwich Town.

The victory takes Villa up to eighth place in Midland League Two and signals a remarkable transformation in their fortunes.

Plagued by injuries during the first half of the season, Villa have now won eight of their last 10 games.

Spokesman Paul Oakes said: "We were hit by so many injuries at the start of the season, but I knew we would come good once players started returning."

Connor Collins registered his 96th goal for the club when opened Villa's account against Bloxwich, netting from the penalty spot after Ellis Blakemore had been brought down.

But Villa had to wait until the closing stages before Collins combined with Alex Dugmore before creating the chance for Dan Wilkes to convert and wrap the game up.

Oakes admitted : "It wasn't the prettiest of games to watch but that was partly due to the poor state of Bloxwich's pitch."

Villa attempt to continue their dramatic climb up the league table this Saturday when they entertain an improving Earlswood Town side.
