“It’s a repetitive message. There’s four games to go, there’s a points tally now that’s achievable to be promoted. You just keep going and keep focused on what you’re doing.

“Until it’s done it’s not done, and football over the years has provided so many consistent turn-ups or things that have surprised and shocked people that you’ve just got to make sure your focus is on the next game and that’s Fleetwood for us.”
