WES Foderingham believes that Town’s festive fixture schedule could be a defining point in their season but they must start getting points on the board.
After Saturday’s home draw with Doncaster, the stopper began by telling the official website what the reaction had been in training this week.
“It’s been positive but obviously we’re disappointed,” he said. “We controlled most of the game, we didn’t finish off our chances and we’re disappointed with the own goal as well. That was probably the only chance we gave them and we’ve come out of the game sharing the points so we’re disappointed.
“We had a good session yesterday and today we’ve trained on an artificial pitch because the weather hasn’t been too great but the mood around the camp is good. We’ll be in good spirits going into the game on Saturday.”
The build-up to a busy Christmas period continues on Saturday at Oldham and Foderingham says that Town need to start picking up wins to keep in touch with the pace-setters in League One.
“It (Oldham) is going to be a tough place to go,” he said. “They’re a decent side and although they’ve been a bit up and down this season they’re not just going to roll over and let us beat them. They’re going to try and get something out of the game as well so we’ve got to go there and play attacking football.
“That’s the main thing: we need points now, we need wins and I think we need to get a few more goals.
“We’ve got a lot of games coming up in a short space of time and I think this is going to be the defining period for us if we can come through with a lot more points on the board.
“Out of the five or six games we have if we can get three wins that will be a good starting point but we need to start picking up points because the teams above us will definitely drop points.”
