Brackley Town boss Jon Brady admitted his side really needed all three points against North Ferriby United but was glad to see their four-match losing run come to an end.
Saints drew 1-1 with the FA Trophy finalists in Saturday’s Vanarama Conference North clash. Both goals came in the first half at St James Park where Greg Kaziboni cancelled out Tom Denton’s opener after David Moyo has missed an early penalty.
Saints remain one point outside the relegation zone but Brady said: “Any point is a good point, especially after the poor run we’ve been on.
“But with the first half chances we had we should have been ahead. We dominated the first half, missed a penalty and had several good chances, and they’ve had one chance, their goal which was a soft one.
“They are a very strong side and we found it hard to get of our half in the second half. But we dug in and stayed strong, we had to rely on breaks but we’ve had the best chances, especially near the end when their keeper saved from David Moyo.
“Frank Sinclair and Ryan Austin coped very well with their aerial threat, especially against [Tom] Denton. Colwyn Bay will pose a similar test to us up front so it was pleasing to keep a clean sheet in the second half with the pressure they had.”
