It was a good feeling to look at the National League table on Sunday morning and see us in the play-offs for the first time this season.

Credit to James Rowe because he knew which players he wanted and he went and got them.

Tom Whelan scored the winner against his former side Weymouth on Saturday, and what a find he appears to be. Funny that Yeovil Town did not want him and sent him off to the Terras, but that’s their problem.

The win against Weymouth on Saturday was Town's third in a row.

We seemed to run out of a little bit of steam in the second-half against Weymouth but that’s almost inevitable in a high pressing game, but three wins and three clean sheets in three games would have been beyond our wildest dreams six months ago.

Anyone looking for negatives should remember how far we have come in the space of four months. Things have improved massively on and off the field.

This division certainly has the ability to be a great leveller with no respect for so-called ‘big names’. Notts County sacked Neil Ardley and replaced him with Ian Burchnall and then subsequently went out of the FA Trophy semi-final at home to Hornchurch, who now go to Wembley.

Dover Atheltic finally have their points expunged and things are set fair with all to play for and hopefully an exciting end to the season.

It is Eastleigh away next up on Good Friday – bring it on!
