Corinthian-Casuals manager James Bracken has urged his players to take the positives from his side's 2-2 draw at Haringey Borough and build a run of results - writes Joshua Doherty.

The Casuals took the lead after ten minutes through Gabriel Odunaike, but went in at half time 2-1 down after conceding twice in as many minutes from a Georgios Aresti long range effort and a Joel Nouble penalty.

Majed Osman then equalised for Casuals in the 64th minute, rounding off a neat move to bring his side level.

The result leaves the Casuals in 17th position, just six points above the bottom three. However, it ends a run of five straight defeats for the Tolworth outfit, ahead of a home tie against Lewes on Tuesday.

“Aside from the crazy two minutes in the first half, the way we played today was brilliant,” Bracken explained.

He added: “I have nothing negative to say about the performance whatsoever. I thought we looked dangerous every time we went forward, we played some good football and defended much more resolutely than we have done recently.

“We have to realise, that while they got two goals today, which can always happen, we've been conceding far to many chances and spaces in the last few games, and if we did that today we would have conceded four and lost 4-2.

“We needed to arrest that bad form. We changed what we did slightly in terms of personnel and game plan, Haringey are a good side, and we knew this would be tough and we were not in for an easy one, but when we don't have an easy one we seem to up our game, so keep them coming.”

Looking forward, the Casuals have the re-arranged trip at home to Lewes on Tuesday, before another home tie against Bishop's Stortford as the season reaches its conclusion.

Bracken continued, “We still have work to do, and we still need some more points on the board but if we play like that we will comfortably win five out of our last ten. It's just about maintaining that now, but I've said that since the start, we know what we are capable of, but what can we do fifteen games in a row? What level of performance and work rate can we turn in?

"Our problem has been consistency. We do it for one match, then we don't for another, then we do it for three, and then don't do it for another four, and you just think, well what can we really do? But we did it today, that's the important thing. We've stopped that run of defeats and we'll get a lot of confidence from that.”
