Positivity is a very important commodity if success and achievement is your goal in anything, and it certainly feels like this is with us at the moment. Recent results have certainly created this but the Sutton game in particular has given us a massive shot in the arm. Not only did we play well and score some great goals but our rivals dropped points at the same time, allowing us to claw back some ground.

As well as all those facts though, the words of Sutton manager Paul Doswell in his after match press conference are well worth a listen. He doesn't deal in cliches and sound bites but instead goes for straight talking, so his comments about our qualities and strengths ring true. And they also betray what opposition managers must think about us even if they don't admit it in public.

So we head into two home games brimming with confidence and also with huge competition for places. We are winning games with key players still sidelined and everyone is stepping up to the mark at the moment.

Fylde will provide good opposition today because they have made a good fist of their first campaign at this level. Also Dave Challinor is a young manager showing promise and sound tactical thinking so they will be well set up against us.

But we should be targeting a win today, and in every home game we play, which is a very achievable goal.

We exist in an era of multimedia that magnifies positives but negatives more so. I love listening to (and participating in) radio phone ins, trawling through Twitter for Rovers info and also being actively involved on sites like this. Listening to othernopinions is great and responding to them is very healthy indeed.

But let's not be our own worst enemy and allow too many negative gripes to get too much airtime. The rest of the league know we are coming now and are aware of the danger we pose. Let's keep that feeling bubbling and roar the team back into contention.

See you all later.
