Still room for improvement, according to Brakes boss Holleran

FOOTBALL: LEAMINGTON boss Paul Holleran admits there’s still room for improvement, despite a thumping 4-0 win against high flying Spennymoor Town on Saturday.

But the win could be the more fortuitous four-goal triumph in years for Brakes.

Tony Breeden was forced into making two penalty saves while Brakes held a two-goal lead.

And it was Brakes’ lack of management during the opening part of the second half that frustrated the manager, though he did admit he was nit-picking.

He added: “I was really disappointed after we went 2-0 up we didn’t manage the game very well.

“If it wasn’t for two fantastic penalty saves it could have been a very different afternoon.

“We’ve got enough experience in the squad to deal with these periods better.

“That was the only little thing, but I’m nit picking because there were some massive performances today.”

A positive eight weeks has seen Brakes advance from bottom club to a consistent mid-table side. But Holleran is all to aware of the threat the National League North poses.

He said: “It’s a tough old league, every point you earn you have to work hard for.

“The result isn’t a fair reflection on Spennymoor – but for us, we’ll take it.

“It was great for the supporters to see that.

“We’ve had a few performances like that on the road but not at home so it was good that we could produce.

“It’s been a really good day for us and I’m absolutely delighted with the players that have come in, the impact the substitutes have made. Hopefully moving forward we can all do better.”
