Brakes boss Holleran pleased with Harrogate draw

FOOTBALL: BRAKES boss Paul Holleran heaped praise on his side following a crucial 1-1 draw against Harrogate on Saturday.

The draw ended Town’s run of four wins on the spin and ensured Brakes remain unbeaten from their last five league games.

Brakes’ recent run of form has played a big part in the club lifting themselves out of the relegation zone, and the future looks far brighter now than earlier in the season.

Speaking after Saturday’s draw, Holleran said: “Last week I was frustrated with the performance because I didn’t feel we’d been up to the levels we should have been.

“But today from minute one to 90 we were where we need to be.

“There’s a little bit of a gap between us and Harrogate and at times it showed.

“We limited them to very little, and I’m a little disappointed to only be leaving with a draw.”

Brakes now face a huge home game on Saturday against relegation candidates North Ferriby United.

The ‘six-pointer’ could have a significant impact later on in the season, and Holleran is impressed with his side heading into Saturday’s game.

He said: “That’s the best we’ve played out of the last three games, we did really well.

“We’ve had three injuries today and the lads that came on have kept it going and kept the shape good. I was delighted with all of it today.

“The last three games we’ve played three sides that could finish one two and three in this division. In which order they finish I’m not too sure.

“We looked a threat all afternoon, we dealt with what they do, which is very efficient and very good.”
