Scott Goodwin admits last weekend’s win against Peterborough Northern Star was massive for Long Buckby – but has warned his players not to celebrate yet.

Melanius Mullarkey netted the winner as the Bucks claimed a 1-0 success against PNS, ending a run of 14 UCL Premier Division games without a win.

It was a key victory for Goodwin’s side as it put some distance between them and the division’s bottom two sides.

But with sides below still having games in hand, the player-boss has warned his men they must not switch off in their final-day clash with Blackstones at Station Road on Saturday.

“I don’t want to sound like a party pooper but although the win was massive for us, it’s far from over yet,” said Goodwin.

“Will there be another twist in the tale? Probably.

“It was a solid performance from us last weekend and it was all about the heart and bravery that we showed.

“If the goal that we scored was live on television it would be shown again and again and again. It was an unbelievable passing move.

“We showed class, but we also showed we can do the nitty gritty, but we’ve got to remember that it’s still not over.”
