SECOND half strikes from James Lemon and Nick Seaborne saw Droitwich Spa defeat local rivals Fairfield Villa 2-0 at the King George Playfield Fields.
But joint boss Wayne Oliver said he was still unhappy Droitwich could not make the most of the numerous chances they created.
After a disappointing first half, Lemon broke the deadlock after the interval before Seabourne finished from close range.
Oliver also saw new signing Jack Brighton in action for the first time since joining, but the Droitwich boss said his side will have to raise their game when they take on Fairfield again this weekend.
“We will have to be mindful this Saturday as again Fairfield are the visitors this time in the County Cup,” he said.
“Last season Spa saw Villa knock them out at the semi final stage and will have to be on guard and alert for this season’s encounter.
“We cannot keep squandering chances from all over the pitch as we will get caught out, our defending has been a lot better of late and with a full squad to pick from this Saturday we should be good to go.”
