Ashton - We Can Survive

Club skipper Jon Ashton has said that there is only one thing on the players' minds at the moment and that is securing our League One status.

Despite sitting bottom of the table with only five games to go, Ashton has told the Official Site that all of the players believe they can still pull us out of the drop zone in the game left and that's exactly what they are planning to do.

'We only see one way - getting out of relegation and into safety. If you ask anyone around the club, especially the lads and management what they think we can achieve within the five remaining games I think everyone will come out with the same conclusion - that we're going to pull it off.'

With 15 points left to play for from the five games, and even though we are bottom of the table, we remain only four points off this weekends opponents Colchester who sit in 18th place.

A victory this weekend, especially following the disappointing result against Shrewsbury Town would be absolutely massive for us, especially if other results on the day also go our way.

Ashton knows because of that that in many cases Colchester this weekend is 'arguably our biggest game of the season' and because of that fact, he assures fans that the players will be putting everything they can into the game so that we do come out of the match with all three points.

He also acknowledges that we have had chances before now to pull ourselves out of the drop zone and we have wasted them, and we simply cannot waste the five remaining matches we now have because as fixtures lie a lot of teams down there play each other so no team is going to win everything and our task is to simply capitalise on their slip ups by ensuring that we take the maximum points available.

Ashton however continues to follow the line that all we can do and focus on is what we can affect and nobody will be looking at other results until the end of the campaign, because if we win all five then surely we'll have achieved our aim.

If we lose all five because we are looking for favours elsewhere and not concentrating properly - well that's something he knows the players cannot afford to do.
