BRACKLEY Town boss Jon Brady paid tribute to Glenn Walker after his secured half performance inspired Saints to a 3-1 victory over Bradford Park Avenue.

All four goals came in the second half of Saturday’s Blue Square Bet North clash at St James Park, where Steve Diggin took his tally to nine goals as Saints made it back-to-back wins ahead of Saturday’s trip to Histon.

Brady said: “It was a much harder game than it looked. We missed a few chances in the first half but we changed a few things at halftime and that made the difference in the second half.

“Bradford had a hold on our front two in the first half and Glenn Walker wasn’t really getting into the game out on the right, with Tom Winters returning, so we put him in behind our front two in the second half. That stopped their holding midfielder dictating play and Glenn was outstanding in the second half, getting the crucial first goal, he showed a lot of character in the second half.

“Steve Diggin looked really lively. He made three or four chances of his own and had his sharpness back, I always felt he was going to score at some stages.”
