The stats don't lie - we are the form team in the National League over the last 6 and the last 10 games. This clearly bodes well for the future.

The John King formula of winning home games as the first step is being followed and we have now achieved the first objective of being in the play off positions. Objective two is now to get into the upper play off zone with the third objective being top spot. And that's the secret in our success I think - step by step recovery.

By looking at the next game only and focussing on getting some home wins under our belt, incremental progress has been made. If we only look at getting top spot then the mountain to climb looks huge and daunting, and probably unachievable. So while the old cliche of 'one game at a time' is trotted out and feels a bit overused, it's actually wholly accurate as a strategy to use in the situation we find ourselves in.

And despite the end of Dylan Mottley-Henrys loan deal, we also find ourselves in a strong position squad wise with lots of competition for places. This is hugely significant from now on as most of our rivals have much smaller squads that will always struggle to cope with the rising tide of injuries and suspensions in the latter half of the season.

So confidence is clearly evident as we head into the third game of the Christmas period today against Guiseley. Spirits are up, we are back in contention and we still have DMH for two more games!

The great Johnny King would never quote stats or form tables but would focus on the home form, Christmas fixtures and then see where we were at Easter. That's not a bad recipie I reckon.
