BRACKLEY Town manager Jon Brady says Saturday’s match with Colwyn Bay has “no chance” of going ahead due to heavy snow.

Brackley have been without a game since their 3-1 victory against Bradford PA two weeks ago, but Brady says his side are fully prepared for when the weather improves having trained indoors.

Brady said “There’s no chance the game will go ahead this weekend.

“It’s frustrating, but I think it’s worse for teams like Halifax who have four or five games in hand.

“We just have to be patient and make sure we’re prepared. There’s a chance the game at Hinckley next Tuesday could go ahead and we need to be fully prepared.”

Brady strengthened his squad over Christmas by bringing in the experienced Jefferson Louis, who has featured for nearly 30 different clubs.

He added: “We brought Louis back because he scores goals. In his first game back he showed that by scoring, he didn’t have the best second game but he brings experience.

“We’re not really looking to bring anyone else in. We’ll see where we’re at but at the moment the squad’s looking in good shape. Apart from Marvin Robinson, who’s injured, everyone’s fit.”

Following a difficult December – having failed to win a match after two frustrating games against Oxford – Brackley returned to winning ways with back-to-back victories over Droylsden and Bradford at the start of the new year.

The 38-year-old added: “We played excellently in the two games against Oxford. We could have won 5-0 at home but their goalkeeper was in inspired form.

“Then away we took the lead but they hit us with the sucker-punch. It’s a lesson to be learned, we now need to keep this run of wins going.”
