BRACKNELL Town are very much the form team in the Isthmian League's South Central Division, with Saturday's 5-1 win over Harlow giving them 28 points from 10 games, writes Dave Wright.

And manager Bobby Wilkinson is urging his players to maintain the standards they are showing, saying: "Our standards must stay high, I won't allow them to drop. We must not stand still, I want everyone to keep pushing."

He does admit, however, that their unbeaten run will end one day.

"Games are coming thick and fast now, so it's going to get even tougher for us now," he told the News.

"Teams are upping their game when they play us as they want to stop our run.

"I am very proud of our record, but I expect it will get broken."

It was all smiles on and off the field following their comfortable victory against Harlow which came courtesy of goals from Nathan Minhas, Dan Bayliss, Joy Mukena, Michael Atkinson, all in the first half, and Nebay Haile in the 90th minute.

"Credit to the whole team, all the boys are working extremely hard," added Wilkinson.

"One of the things which really pleased me was that three goals came from set-plays.

"We have been working hard on them, so I've got to give credit to my coaches.

"Goals from set-plays can give you at least 15 points a season.

"That makes a difference in this league, being more professional.

"I am really proud of my coaches and a lot of credit goes to them."

Wilkinson continued: "We will continue to prepare properly for every game. The players are pumped up and ready to go, it's just knowing how to manage them.

"I believe if you work hard, you get rewarded – and that is off the field as well and is certainly happening at this club. Chairman Kayne (Steinborn-Busse) and his team are doing a tremendous job here.

"A lot has happened since we came in, it was a bit like a sinking ship in some ways.

"My lads have come in, started the engine, and the players we brought in have jumped on board. We are going forward, but we know we might have to encounter some icebergs along the way.

"Considering the position the club was in when I came in here, I would be a proud man if we can get into the play-offs, but at the moment I am looking no further than our next game."

This Saturday, Bracknell are away to Waltham Abbey, another side looking towards the play-offs.
