Brackley Town boss Jon Brady says they can keep winning

Brackley boss Jon Brady insists there is no reason their 100% start to the season cannot continue indefinitely.

The newly promoted side have won eight matches in the Blue Square Bet North and no other team in the top seven divisions have won every game.

Brady told BBC Radio Northampton: "I believe we can keep going. We get the boys to focus on the next game, not what we've done previously.

"I put it down to the hard work we've done and keeping faith in the players."

Brady took permanent charge at St James' Park for 2009-10 and the club finished fifth in the Southern League Premier Division, losing in the play-offs to Nuneaton.

The next season was not so successful, with a ninth-placed finish. But they took the title last season ahead of Oxford City by eight points.

"A lot of other [Blue Square Bet North] teams do try to play football, whereas the Southern League is very robust," added Brady.

"It does suit our play and the way we like to defend - we pressure very high and work very hard."

Fourteen members of the title-winning side from 2011-12 remained over the summer, with new recruits like Wayne Hatswell and Eddie Odhiambo. Brady denies that there has been interest in any of his players or his services despite their strong start.

"I'm really committed to Brackley and taking them as far as I can," he said.

"They've been brilliant to me. I think they realised that I was a young manager and wouldn't always get things right.

"They showed faith in me and I believe it takes 300 games for a manager to start being successful. They need to be given time - but different circumstances call for different decisions. I'm just happy I've got a supportive chairman and a brilliant board."

Brackley have also beaten Daventry Town 4-0 in the second round of FA Cup qualifying.
