JOINT-BOSS Michael Brothers sees no reason why the bubble should burst at Brantham Athletic.

The Imps are riding on the crest of a wave after another successful week.

Saturday’s 2-0 victory at Histon left them third in the Thurlow Nunn League premier division table - level on points with second-placed Stowmarket Town - and they progressed in the League Challenge Cup after a penalty shoot-out success at Cornard United on Tuesday.

Brothers sees no reason for the feel-good factor to end and hopes his on-song players can sustain their promotion push.

“We’re on a great run and it’s a lovely feeling,” he said.

“The dressing room is a very nice place at the moment and it’s the same in any walk of life - when things are going well, everyone has a spring in their step.

“There’s a buzz among the players and the lads who aren’t getting as many minutes as they’d like are enjoying being part of it.

“We’re not the only ones on a bit of a run, though.

“(Leaders) Felixstowe are flying and so are Coggeshall and Stowmarket.

“It’s going to be really interesting to see how things pan out in the next few weeks and especially over Christmas.

“There will be slip-ups - we’ll drop points at some point - but the important thing is responding well and bouncing back, as we did by winning at Histon after losing against Saffron Walden.

“Hopefully we can keep on pushing and there’s every reason to be confident.”

After losing at Saffron Walden the previous weekend, Brantham got back to winning ways at Histon.

Goals from Craig Hughes and Sam Newson secured a 2-0 success.

Now they switch their attention to another tricky trip, this time to Wroxham.

“Tomorrow’s game will be another big test,” said Brothers, who runs the side with Matt Carmichael.

“Wroxham are breathing down our necks, a couple of points behind, and that gives us extra motivation.

“We know they’d leapfrog us if they won, whereas if we could win we’d put a bit of daylight between ourselves and them.

“That will give the boys an extra incentive to do well.”

Ben Newson is available again after missing the last two league games due to suspension and unavailability respectively.

Brothers himself is also set to miss out because of a foot injury but Brantham added to their firepower recently by resigning club legend Ollie Mann.

“Ollie’s doing really well,” said Brothers.

“He wants to commit to us and he’s hungry to do well, after his short spell at Lawford.

“I’m sure he’ll have a handful of goals by Christmas.

“Sam and Ben (Newson) are also scoring regularly and we’ve got midfielders who also chip in with goals.

“It’s brilliant and we hope to keep this squad together.

“When you’re doing well, it’s inevitable that there will be whispers about clubs being interested in your best players.

“But hopefully we can keep the nucleus of the squad together.”

Tuesday’s cup tie at Cornard finished 0-0.

It went straight to a penalty shoot-out and it was the Imps who prevailed 5-4.

After tomorrow, the Imps do not play again until November 15.
