BRACKNELL Town have now gone five games unbeaten – and manager Bobby Wilkinson says there is still a lot more to come from his side, writes Dave Wright.

After their 4-2 win at Ashford Town last Saturday, he said: "Obviously, we are very happy with the three points, but there is a lot for us to work on.

"We expected that, as we have brought in a new lot of players and they will need time to adapt as to how we want the team to play. You can't expect miracles to happen in three weeks.

"All that matters to me at the moment at this stage of the season, is winning games."

Wilkinson, along with his assistant Mike Percival and coach Lea Barkus, have certainly had a dramatic effect since taking over at Larges Lane last month.

He stated: "Our initial plan for the first six weeks is to get wins and put points in the mixer.

"We haven't lost a game yet since we came here so it's going okay so far, and it's going to get better.

"We are nowhere near where we want to be, but we are becoming organised.

"To beat Ashford 4-2 away from home in hard conditions was a credit to the boys.

"Yes, I was very disappointed with the way we conceded the two goals, but I went into the dressing room after the game and told the players I don't want to be negative. I am not interested in having negativity around me.

"We will win together and lose together.

"We will judge players when we lose, we never judge a player when you are winning."

Another newcomer to a Robins shirt on Saturday was Michael Atkinson, signed from Walton Casuals, the Southern Premier League side which parted company with manager Steve Conroy last week and whose chairman is Sky Sports pundit Tony Gale.

The experienced midfielder came off the bench to make his debut midway through the second half.

Wilkinson stated: "I am chuffed with all the new signings and that's us finished.

"We have done it quickly, we showed the club how quickly we can move to bring in quality players, who will give us the chance of moving up the league

"We wanted to bring in players who are going to work hard for the club and wear the badge with a bit of pride.

"The chairman (Kayne Steinborn-Busse) has backed us all the way."

Bracknell are currently without the services of leading scorer Nathan Minhas, who has an on-going problem with his heel.

He is due to see a specialist this week, with Wilkinson commenting: "We have sent him away to try and get it sorted.

"We are desperate to get him back, hopefully in the next three weeks."

The Robins are through to the last eight of the Velocity Trophy after knocking-out Premier Division club Lewes 2-1 at Larges Lane on Tuesday.

They got off to a dream start with right-back Dan Carr racing through to fire home the opening goal inside the first three minutes.

Lewes substitute Tegan Freeman was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Scott Rees after 65 minutes and eight minutes later Max Herbert, who was skippering the side, brilliantly headed Town's second goal from Seb Bowerman's long left-wing cross.

Both sides made full use of their five substitutes, with Shane Cooper-Clark making his return to the Bracknell attack after his long lay-off through injury.

It was one of the Lewes replacements, Dayshonne Golding, who pulled a goal back in the third minute of stoppage time.

The Robins have a home Isthmian League fixture with Hertford this Saturday and next Tuesday (7.45pm) Wilkinson takes his side back to one of his former clubs, Hungerford, for a Berks & Bucks Senior Cup second-round tie.
