Alex Morris says that we are ‘asking a lot’ to break into the play-off places now, but he is adamant that the players will keep going into the final game of the season. The Railwaymen looked at Saturday’s disappointing 3-1 home defeat to Cheltenham Town as a real chance missed after a host of teams ahead of us dropped points and with the gap still at 8 points, the Alex are still mathematically in there.
Morris appreciates that it is a tall order and that we will be looking for favour along the way, but he says no-one here is relaxing.
Ahead of this weekend’s derby encounter at Vale Park, the first team coach told us: “We have six games left and I would think that we would need to win at least five of those games, possibly all of them to have a chance now.
“We would need one or two favours along the way as well because there are a number of teams ahead of us in the table. It is asking a lot.
“We are not totally out of it and if we cannot manage it this time then we want to finish higher than last season and have a lot more points. We have targets to aim for and it is all about seeing that improvement.
He added: “This season we have shown that we can compete the top teams and win those games but we have dropped far too many points when we shouldn’t have, especially away from home. It is all about becoming more consistent and that is what we have to take into the following season.”
