The Bucks need another win to make it 12 points from a possible 12 over the Christmas and New Year period after two wins against Nuneaton and victory over Leamington.

Cowan said his players were left with plenty to work on following their comeback win at bottom side Nuneaton on Tuesday.

When asked if the habit of winning while not at their best was the sign of a good team, the Bucks chief replied: “It’s that saying, upgrading the software without damaging the hardware.

Bramley lost his place in the Telford team to local lad and boyhood fan Andy Wycherley, who has played every match since breaking into the team in late October,
