Brackley Town manager Jon Brady reckons four points from the final two games should be enough to get out of the Vanarama Conference North relegation zone.

Saints travel to basement boys Hyde on Saturday before entertaining Hednesford Town in their final game at St James Park.

Saints remain third from bottom but gave themselves a massive boost by beating leaders Barrow on Saturday and Brady will be looking for his side to follow that up at Hyde.

He said: “We’ve given ourselves a fighting chance of getting out of it and I think four more points should do it. I still believe we can do it and so do the players, especially after Saturday’s result.

“We will give it our best shot and hopefully that will enough to see us over the line. But we’ve got to focus on Hyde first of all, it won’t be easy because they’ve picked up some decent results recently.”

But Brady faces more selection problems for Saturday through injury and suspension.

Tom Sharpe and Dwayne Samuels are suspended while veteran keeper Billy Turley, experienced duo Frank Sinclair and Chris Carruthers are all doubts along with Eric Odhiambo, who limped off against Barrow, and Greg Kaziboni.

Brady said: “Last season we had the best defensive record in the league but this time we’ve had to chop and change because of injuries, especially to our more experienced players.

“We have a growing injury list and suspensions to contend with but we will still put a team together to compete at Hyde.”
