Braintree up to second after sixth win on the trot
ALAN Devonshire could not hide his delight after Braintree Town made it six Blue Square Bet Premier wins on the bounce with a 3-1 home victory over Tamworth.
Jai Reason was the star of the show grabbing two spectacular goals, one in each half, while Andrew Yiadom kept up his fine form this season with a long range strike of his own in the second period.
Liam McDonald had given the Lambs hope straight after Reason’s opener but a dominant second half display from the Iron meant there was ever only likely to be one winner.
“We started the game off really well but then it was bad on our part to concede immediately after we scored,” said Town boss, Devonshire.
“But we played a more narrow style in the second half, got the ball to our forwards and we knew we always had it in us to score a goal. That is 22 in 12 games we have scored now this season.”
Devonshire’s young side moved up to second with the victory but the high-flyers will face a tough test of their credentials on Saturday when big-spending Fleetwood Town visit the Amlin Stadium.
“We are looking forward to that game already and after tonight and Saturday’s result we have got to be buzzing and we will give it our best shot and see what happens,” he added.
