Season Two: February-March Update
Well we certainly hit rock bottom lost month! We struggled big time, and I made sure the players knew of my disappointment with several stern team meetings. Hopefully the players would be inspired to hit some top form.
Well we certainly did improve over these two months! February was a little inconsistent, with two wins, one draw and one defeat in the four games which we played. I understood that it would be difficult for us in that month, due to a lack of confidence. However, March was a completely different story. We drew our opening game of March against Oldham, but we then demolished our opponents in five straight wins, including a vital win away to Oxford. I am delighted with this run of form, and it certainly will motivate us to finish the season in style.
Player Of The Months
Was there ever going to be anybody else to stand up and make the difference? Euan Smith
scored an incredible nine games in the last two months to be our best player over the period. His goalscoring ability has been superb and he has shown the footballing world that he could potentially go on to become a lethal striker for a top team, if he continues in this vein.

We are back on top with just five games left to be played! This has been such an amazing achievement, considering we were only just promoted to this division. Five more points will guarantee us at least a play-off spot, in the worst scenario, while nine points will guarantee us promotion. We are just one point above a very in-form York side, so it will be difficult for us to stay on top, but who knows? Anything can happen!
We play our final five games in these two months. Every single game will be tough for us, no matter who we play. Our toughest challenges will be away to Rotherham and Mansfield. They're both chasing promotion so the two games will be contested hotly. Nine points will guarantee us promotion this season, so that is what I'm aiming for. If we can do even better and win the title, I will be over the moon, but it is not my priority. C'mon you Hatters!
