Can't even think about Alfreton yet. Like the players, the fans need to just focus on the Gateshead game and take one step at a time.

Let's not get nervous. Let's all smile because that releases tension. Let's be happy with our terrific team and back them with confidence.

Do not get on their backs at Blundell Park. Only positive encouragement and support is needed. The same type of positive support that they get at away fixtures.

Good luck Town

I do worry we're all getting carried away with Monday. The only focus should be this Saturday right now

Let's pack the park on Saturday and get waving those flags as well as singing our hearts out for the lads. This is the closest we have been to automatic promotion since we've been down in the conference. The only thing we, as fans, can do is support the team in any way we can, UTFM.

My philosophy is this - even if we drop points on Saturday or lose, it's not the end of the world. A big dent in our chances undoubtedly but Barnet and Bristol are not going to walk through all their matches. Look at how many people thought we'd blown it because we only drew away at Chester and dropped a couple of points.

Play and be damned I say - as soon as we start getting cagey about it then the nerves set in. A few weeks ago we were on our way to the play-offs at best. We shouldn't be confident just because of the run we're on, we should be confident because we are the best team in this league and we deserve to be champions.

Let's develop a deserved swagger - tonk Gateshead, then move on.

This 'one game at a time' talk is just football manager speak. After 12-odd years of mostly misery supporting Town from now until the end of the season I'm going to allow myself to dream.

Let's pack the park on Saturday and get properly behind the boys. If everyone brings a friend and something black and white, be it a scarf or a flag or whatever then the ground will be full and look awesome. When BP gets going, it's magnificent but too many times in recent years it hasn't. We need to take the atmosphere from away games and transfer it to home games. The Heed are struggling for players and on paper we should beat them, particularly because I'm hoping our players will want to get another one over the cheating barstewards and we, the fans, can't make a difference, the players have said as much.

Gateshead are not at their best,

They have another long journey to London tonight,

They will be there for the taking,

Our players are focused,

Its going to be another super Saturday.

I had a look at Gateshead's line-up against Eastleigh on Saturday, still some names I recognise.

I know it's been reported that they're missing 9 or 10 players, but how many of those are genuine first-teamers, who have 20+ starts this season?

I agree they have a few injury problems - maybe to two or three key players - but that'll be the extent of it. They still put up a fight against Eastleigh and I'm sure they'll put up a fight against us.

I expect they'll have more possession than us too, so we need to be patient.

You might recognise some of the Gateshead players.  But Jon Shaw CF, is playing as a CB due to their injury crisis.   (No Oster either).
