We must keep ourselves level - Cox

25 February 2013

Manager Paul Cox is insisting his players mustn’t get carried away with their excellent run of results, which has seen them win seven out of the last eight matches.

Our first team are top of the form table after an excellent run of results, which now sees them five points off top spot, but with a game in hand over Wrexham, who lead the table.

And speaking at this morning’s pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow night’s trip at struggling Lincoln City, Cox warned against complacency.

“It could all go sour tomorrow,” said Cox.  “What I want us to do is keep ourselves level.  Nothing’s ever won in February.  We’re on a nice run of form but it’s mine and the players job to make sure that continues.  There’s a long way to go [until the end of the season] and a lot of twists and turns.

“It’s one we have to go into with the right kind of mindset.  We have to be careful that we keep ourselves level after a tremendous high on Saturday [following the 3-2 win at Luton].  

“It’s a local derby.  We’ll be taking a lot of supporters with us and we have to put in the same kind of performance than we did at Luton – nothing else will be good enough.

“We have to go into this fixture with even more hunger because it’s these type of games which ultimately come and find you out.”

In team news, Alan Marriott and Lee Beevers, who struggled in parts of the match on Saturday with minor knocks, have been declared fit.  Meanwhile, Cox said he was waiting to hear an update on the state of Anthony Howell’s knee which kept him out of Saturday’s clash at Kenilworth Road, Luton.
