Brackley Town manager Jon Brady was in positive mood after his side’s 1-0 win against Vauxhall Motors on Tuesday evening.
Saints dominated the entire 90 minutes and battered their mid-table opponents but only Glenn Walker could beat Zac Jones in the visiting goal.
Marvin Robinson headed straight at the goalkeeper on three occasions while Izak Reid, Steve Diggin and Tom Winters also missed good chances.
Brady said: “It could have been a lot easier. I’ll go on the positive side because we made a lot of chances, I thought we tried to be a bit too penetrative and we should have been a bit more calmer on the ball.
“In the end we should have been a lot more clinical and ruthless in front of goal and we would have been out of sight.
“It could have been three or four before they even touched the ball. But I’ll go on the positives, we created a lot of chances. We could have been better in front of goal but we’ve got two clean sheets in a week now.
“That’s been our weakness recently – we’ve gone and beaten the top sides and not finished the sides off around mid-table, but we got the three points today and I’m pleased with that.
“They’re a good side and they can open sides up, I think they only had one shot on target so that was pleasing.”
Tomorrow, Brackley go to Solihull Moors in search of a third straight win which would virtually wrap up a play-off place.
Brady added: “It’ll be a very tough match. They’ve beaten Harrogate away but we want to keep the momentum going and get the three points.
“The games are coming thick and fast so we’ll asses the squad and sees who’s fit and go from there.”
