Brackley Town boss wants to bolster attacking options

Brackley Town

Brackley Town manager Jon Brady says he will need to strengthen his side's attacking options if they are to climb the Zamaretto League Premier Division.

The Saints are without a win in five league matches, having scored just 18 goals to slip to 16th in the table.

Brady told BBC Radio Oxford: "We've found it difficult to find the back of net this season.

"In the last five games we haven't got the balance quite right so we're looking for a striker."

The Saints lost striker Ben Mackey in the summer, after the former Coventry City man left for Corby Town, and forward Mark Rawle has been sidelined for the majority of the season through injury.

"Ben Mackey leaving was hard and we did try to keep him so we are missing two main strikers and that is very disappointing," Brady added.

"We are trying to find that elusive goal scorer, someone who will be good for our team and score lots of goals. Someone like that would be priceless for us really."

Brackley's casualty list has deepened throughout the course of the season with both centre-forward Jason Bradley and midfielder Jamie Gould missing through injury.

Brady has even, on occasion, stepped in as a substitute to make up the numbers.

"It's been difficult to cope with, so me and my assistant manager, Darren Collins, who is 43 years of age, have had to sit on the bench.

"We are low on numbers and it's been that way for the course of the season.

"But we still believe we have a good team and we've worked hard and we feel that we are going to turn the corner after Christmas and push on."
