Leamington continued their good run with a 2-1 victory at the New Windmill Ground over moneybags team Brackley Town in front of a good mid-week crowd of 503 on a wet night.
Brackley certainly showed some pace and both sides had their chances in the first half, but it was 0-0 at the break. Play was often halted by the fussy referee who showed one of the Brackley players a yellow card as the teams went to the dressing room.
Luke Corbett unleashed an absolute cannon ball of a shot on 65 minutes at the Harbury Lane end to put Brakes ahead. It is one of the best goals I have seen at the NWG and provoked a chant of 'Where were you when Corbett scored?' from the Harbury Lane end.
Richard Batchelor then put the Brakes 2-0 ahead with an emphatic strike. Brackley managed to score a consolation goal in the dying minutes, but never looked like securing the 2-2 draw they got in the recent FA Cup match.
Jacko had a bit of an off night, but I was impressed by the new signing from Hinckley, Stephan Morley, who came on as a sub put in an instinctive shot from distance that troubled the Brackley keeper. We also saw some more of the new signing from Canvey Island, James Rowe.
