Here's an assessment of how Simon Weaver's men performed as they made a return to winning ways.

James Belshaw 6/10. Picked up Kelvin Lamgmead’s back-pass, leading to an indirect free-kick and the Maidenhead goal, but otherwise dealt with everything that came his way.

Ryan Fallowfield 8. ADVERTISER MAN OF THE MATCH. Constantly got forward from right-back, causing the hosts all sorts of problems with low deliveries into the box.

Callum Howe 8. Back among the goals with a close-range finish and excellent aerially in both boxes.

Kelvin Langmead 8. Provided the all-important winning goal with a fine finish. Looked assured at the back throughout.

Warren Burrell 6. Showed himself to be capable of switching to left-back, though not as effective going forward as when on the right side.

George Thomson 6. Delivered good set-pieces into the box during the first half, finding Mark Beck at the back post, who headed towards Howe for the opener.

Josh Falkingham 7. Battling performance in the centre of the park, snapping into challenges and spurring his team-mates on.

Jack Emmett 6. Troubled Maidenhead with his runs in behind and won the ball back on numerous occasions, though should have put Town 2-1 up on the stroke of half-time.

Joe Leesley 7. Provided the corner for Langmead’s winner and struck the woodwork late on, but not as involved as usual.

Mark Beck 8. Continued his fine recent form with another impressive display, won plenty of aerial battles and claimed assists for both goals.

Jack Muldoon 7. Will be disappointed to have been replaced having again shown signs of an emerging partnership with Beck and rattling the woodwork.

Substitutes: Dominic Knowles 7. (On for Muldoon, 65). Looked a threat every time he got on the ball, spreading the play out wide and allowing Town to create opportunities.

Michael Woods 6. (On for Thomson, 66). Looked tidy in possession out on the right and managed a couple of strikes on goal.
