Boston United  1-0  Brackley Town      21 Jan 2020

Smash and Grab

Boston grabbed a late winner to steal the points in classic smash and grab style on a night dominated by the visitors who did everything but score.  Man of the Match was Pilgrims’ keeper Peter Crook who pulled off a string of saves to thwart Saints before Dominic Knowles struck in the 86th minute to send Kevin Wilkin’s side away from Lincolnshire empty handed.

Bradford (PA)  1-2  Brackley Town      18 Jan 2020 

Battling win on the road 

Lee Ndlovu’s 11th goal in 8 games in first half added time sent Brackley into the second half with a narrow lead that was doubled by Jimmy Armson on the hour to more or less settle the outcome and Park Avenue’s late goal was just a consolation. 

 

AFC Telford  0-1  Brackley Town      4 Jan 2020

Saints win again on the road

An impressive performance earned an important away win to maintain Saints’ push for the top.  Lee Ndlovu’s tenth goal in eight league games put Kevin Wilkin’s side on the road to victory but, with a second goal proving elusive, determined defending was needed to secure the points in an exciting finale.

 Brackley Town  1-1  Kettering Town   1 Jan 2020

Battling Saints earn draw

Brackley and Kettering shared the points in a full blooded New Year’s Day game full of incident, the first league fixture ever between the two Northamptonshire sides.  The Poppies took the lead, only to be immediately pegged back before a breathless second half saw the visitors go down to ten men and both sides fail to convert penalty kicks.
