Leamington manager Paul Holleran applauds development following victory over Brackley Town
According to the league table, Brackley is a strong team, and I’m happy with how the game went. For the first hour, we played like a really strong National League North team, and I’m extremely happy for the supporters. “ Another 100 enthusiastic admirers were present. We try, so they don’t give up on us, and it was good to get the away win we deserved.
“Some of the individual performances were excellent. It’s critical that we build on this week.We have to do it every week, and there are enough people in the locker room to score a few goals.
Brackley’s first shot of the match didn’t come for another 15 minutes; it was a meek attempt from the edge of the box that Ted Cann easily stopped.
Just before halftime, Brackley missed a chance to stop another corner kick from Liam Cross, and Leamington could have taken the lead.
After Adam Walker scored in spectacular fashion to start the second half, Brackley’s former player’s curse returned to haunt them.
Only five minutes after Walker’s opening goal, Liam Cross was able to add another spectacular goal with a beautiful free kick.
After the Brakes’ first significant defensive blunder created a tight situation, substitute Levi Amantchi defeated Cann.
But the visitors held on for a well-deserved victory, giving them two victories in a row. They are now two points adrift of safety.
