Quinton Admits Half-Time Team Talk Was Much Needed

Braintree Town climbed to top of the Vanarama National League South after a 3-1 win at Gloucester City, with boss Brad Quinton admitting he was not happy with his side going into the break.

Town moved to 1st place in the league on goal difference with 27 points from their opening 13 games of the season, after they came from a goal down to gain the three points, writes Tom Feaheny.

They had fallen behind to a Karnell Chambers before goals from Karl Oliyide and two strikes from Phil Roberts settled the game.

"I was certainly not happy with their first half performance and told them so in no uncertain terms at half time," said Quinton to the club's website.

"But credit to them all because they came back out with this time the right attitude and commitment playing the football I know they can play."

"We upped the tempo and dominated across the park and were in total control and really should have scored five or six goals. Their response was excellent but they should have done so in the first half."

Braintree have the weekend off due to Truro City's participation in the FA Cup, it means Town's next game is on Saturday 21st away at Bath City.
