Manager Jon Brady paid tribute to his young Saints following back-to-back Vanarama Conference North victories but admits there is still work to be done to stay clear of trouble.

David Moyo bagged both goals in Sunday’s 2-1 success at Gainsborough Trinity and Brady was delighted for the on-loan Northampton Town striker.

He said: “It’s been really pleasing seeing the younger players starting to shine for us. Will Green was doing great until he got injured but Greg Kaziboni and now David Moyo have taken it on. It’s nice to see those young players who came through at Northampton Town doing so well together.”

Both victories were secured in the second half which also pleased Brady as he has seen his side throw away points too many times in the second period this season. Now he will be looking for his young players to build on their last two performances and see games out to the end to pick up more points.

He added: “The players, especially the younger ones, are starting to manage the games a lot better now. We’ve lost so many games this season in the second half, having been in winning positions at halftime.

“We had to dig deep against Gloucester City because of the elements and were rocking a bit at Gainsborough when they equalised. But each time the players saw the game out.

“It’s a very tight division this season, there are no easy games and I’ve used Tamworth as an incentive. When we drew against them earlier in the season I still thought they would improve and they’ve always been my tip for the play-offs so it’s no surprise to see them in third place.

“We need 21 points from 18 games to reach my 50-point target and the question is can we do it. The table looks a lot healthier but there is still a lot of work to do before we can be safe.”
