Brackley Town boss Kevin Wilkin praised his side’s character after they twice fought back to earn a point against Darlington 1883.

Saturday’s Vanarama National League North clash finished 2-2 at St James Park where Stefan Moore made his return to the club on-loan from Solihull Moors.

They scored two great goals but we showed great character to come back twice

Saints boss Kevin Wilkin

Darlington twice went ahead through a couple of crackers from Stephen Thompson and Josh Gillies but Saints hit back each time with Gareth Dean getting his third goal of the season and Shane Byrne opening his account for the club.

Wilkin said: “Both sides wanted to win it. They scored two great goals but we showed good character to come back twice, it could have gone either way in the end but it was a fair result.”

Moore made his first start for the club having signed on-loan from Solihull Moors and Wilkin is hoping the experienced striker can have a big influence on his side.

He added: “Stefan acquitted himself well, others can learn from him, he is a good player and he is a goal scorer. He needs some match time but hopefully he will build on Saturday’s performance.”
