Manager Graham Alexander has said that he is relishing the opportunity that the Easter period always brings, as the next two games will effectively decide where we are capable of finishing this season.
Cheltenham on Good Friday, followed up by Wycombe Wanderers on Monday and both matches will be huge for us, but the gaffer told the Official Site that he remained confident we could take a maximum haul from both games.
Having been beaten earlier in the season by Cheltenham though, he knows it's going to be a difficult game and that we will have to be at our clinical best to ensure the result we want.
'It'll no doubt be a tough game for us, especially down at their place. They came here a few months ago and turned us over, so we have to go there for maximum points if we are to close the gap on the top three. Having said that, we have to pick up maximum points from all four remaining games and that is what we're aiming for.'
The draw against Morecambe in our last match wasn't exactly what we needed but although unlikely you would think, automatic promotion is technically achievable and it's what we have to keep going for ultimately.
'They'll be at home, so they'll have the emphasis to attack, and as we saw with Morecambe they didn't do that, they sat back with bodies behind the ball, so it'll be a different game. However, I'd expect the same sort of spirit and competitiveness from them, but we find that with every team. We have to match anything they come at us with.'
The gaffer goes on to say that with the dream still alive in terms of automatic promotion, we can't give up, and we simply have to keep going and give it 'our best shot'.
'If we manage to cut that gap down then we'll be chuffed, as that was the target for us all. If not, then we'll give it our best shot in the play offs.'
