Season Six: January Update
We ended 2017 top of the league and we started 2018 with a job to finish, and that job is to win the league. With a lot of confidence built, we felt like we could beat the very best.
We played seven games last month, winning five and losing two. We kicked off with a win at home to Tranmere, but we then lost to Derby away. We bounced back with a 3-1 win away to Rotherham, before BPL giants Burnley destroyed us 3-0 at their place in the FA Cup. We bounced back to beat Leyton Orient, Oxford and lastly Gillingham. We looked leaky in defence, but we scored a few. I won the Manager of the Month award, which I'm proud of.
Player of the Month
Euan Smith is my player of the month for January. He put in a real shift for the team and he did us proud, scoring four goals in an exciting month. He has been a consistent striker for us this season. His goal tally might not be outstanding, but he is one of three top strikers at the club and he has done very well so far this season.
NPower League One
We have now established a nine point gap at the top of the table and we are looking like strong favourites to win the league. With just fourteen games left, we can look forward to another league win, provided we keep our cool for the rest of the season.
We have only three games next month, which we will look to claim maximum points from. If we can do this, we will be in a very strong position to win the league.
