Leamington boss Paul Holleran has demanded his side respond positively to the upturn in fortunes of their relegation rivals, writes Paul Okey.

Brakes go into Wednesday night’s crunch home clash with Chorley just a place and two points above the relegation zone in the National League North. Successive wins for Gainsborough Trinity and recent victories for AFC Telford and Alfreton have left his side anxiously looking over their shoulders in 19th.

A final-day fixture between Gainsborough and fellow bottom-three side Tamworth further complicates Brakes’ survival fight and Holleran knows tomorrow evening offers the best chance of easing their drop fears.

“We’ve slipped up a little bit,” he admitted. “There have been a few games that we could have had something but didn’t, could have got a point but we didn’t and other teams have responded.

“Gainsborough have gained a couple of results, Alfreton have gone to Brackley and won and AFC Telford have got a result, too. What we’ve got to do is what the other teams have done and win a game.”
