Brackley Town boss Kevin Wilkin is urging caution despite seeing his side move up to fourth in the Vanarama National League North.

Saints travel to fifth-placed Chorley on Saturday before entertaining Worcester City three days later.

Nuneaton had a lot of possession in Tuesday’s game but didn’t really cause us any problems

Saints boss Kevin Wilkin

Wilkin said: “We have to remember where we have come from. There have been a lot of changes since last season and we’re only nine games in.

“Chorley is always a difficult place to go and we lost there by the odd goal last season. But we’re a different proposition this time.”

Reflecting on Tuesday’s 2-1 victory against his former club Nuneaton Town, Wilkin added: “It’s always nice to win against your old club and they were fortunate to turn us over here last season.

“Nuneaton had a lot of possession in Tuesday’s game but didn’t really cause us any problems.

“Their late goal set up a tense finish but we’re stronger at the back this season. Apart from the penalty save and the late goal, Laurie Walker hasn’t had much to do in the game.”

Saints have been drawn at home in the second qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup.

They face Evo-Stik Northern Premier League outfit Rugby Town at St James Park later this month.

Wilkin said: “With due respect to Rugby, getting a home draw against a team lower than you is all you can ask for.

“But they will come here looking to do well so we will not be taking anything for granted in the tie.”
