Luton boss praises Brackley

Have your say

LUTON Town manager Paul Buckle was full of praise for Brackley Town following the goalless draw between the sides at St James’ Park on Wednesday.

In a fairly uneventful encounter, only Stuart Fleetwood went close to scoring for the visitors as Brackley looked at ease against higher-level opposition.

Saints rarely threatened themselves but Buckle believed there was little difference in quality between the sides.

He said afterwards: “These are very tough games.

“There’s not a lot of difference between the sides, these players are all good players and this is way we came here – there’s not a lot of difference.

“The surface was great, they’ve been promoted and they got the ball forward quickly and tested us in the box.”
