Motormen rally too late to rescue unbeaten run
BRACKLEY Town ended Motors' three-match unbeaten run with a 2-1 victory at St James Park.
A dominant first half performance from the home side was rewarded with Steve Diggin's penalty before Izak Reid’s superb free-kick doubled the lead on the hour-mark.
Motors hit back through Ashley Stott and Brackley needed some desperate late defending to hang on for the victory.
Diggin and Glenn Walker had chances before Brackley took the lead on 13 minutes.
Walker was fouled in the penalty area and Diggin stepped up to convert from the penalty spot.
The remainder of the half saw little action with just a couple of efforts on each goal failing to extend either goalkeeper.
Jon Brady's side got their second goal on 58 minutes courtesy of a superb free-kick from Izak Reid that curled into the top corner from 30 yards.
The Motormen reduced the deficit seven minutes later when Matty Williams' shot from 18 yards took a deflection off Ashley Stott, giving Brackley goalkeeper Billy Turley no chance.
That sparked a late charge for an equaliser but despite a lot of pressure on Turley's goal, the final touch was lacking as Brackley held on to take the three points and extend their unbeaten league run to 10 matches.
