Brackley Town manager Jon Brady was delighted with some of the football his side displayed during their 3-1 victory against Workington on Saturday.

Goals from James Clifton, Elliot Sandy and Glenn Walker were reward for an excellent second half performance from the St James’ Park outfit.

Saints are now the only club in the top eight leagues in the whole country to remain with a 100 per cent record following Chester’s 3-2 loss at Boston.

That result also means that Brackley sit three points clear at the top of the table.

Brady said: “With the quality we’ve got, I always believed it would come. They didn’t put their heads down and they kept going.

“Their keeper was magnificent at times, we did try to place it in the corners but you have to hold you hold your hand up to the keeper.

“Some of the football we played in the second half was incredible at times. Both our full-backs joined in, I thought Curtis McDonald was magnificent.

“We lost a bit of focus when their goal went in and we lost some discipline. But what we’ve done is to not blame anyone but ourselves and we’ve started to focus on us.

“We felt the goal was offside but once we got our focus back we didn’t half play well. I was so proud of them.”

Brackley led at the break following a timid first half that was lit up on the stroke of half time when Clifton’s deflected shot found the back of the net.

Brady added: “At half time we said that they were very organised and worked hard but that was them at their best and we were still in second gear.
“I thought we were just doing enough and my message at half time was to get out of second gear and we turned it around.

“We’re the best team in the country right now, we’ve won eight out of eight.”

This Saturday, Brady’s side host local rivals Daventry Town in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup.
He added: “It’s very nice to go into the FA Cup after the start we’ve had.

“We’re looking forward to be playing our neighbours Daventry, we’ll go into that with confidence and we know that our work-rate and our quality is getting us there.”
