Wilkin Urges Brackley To Use Home Advantage For Replay

Brackley Town boss Kevin Wilkin says his side's impressive home record has to be used by the team as they aim to reach the FA Trophy semi-final.

This match was due to take place last Tuesday but was postponed and both sides then had a free weekend because of the weather, writes Tom Feaheny.

"It is a match we will both be looking forward to facing good opposition, I credit Stockport after they came back at us strongly and with the home crowd behind them, they used that then, now we must," Wilkin told the club's website.

“We showed great character and defended brilliantly in front of a big home crowd.

“We are in the draw with Stockport and let’s see if we can do it in the replay.”

The winner will face Wealdstone in the semi-final in the two legged ties.
