Down to the wire

TOWN manager Kevin MacDonald believes the promotion race will go all the way to the final day of the season. 

With just seven games to go, Town start a tough Easter period with a home fixture against Oldham on Good Friday.

“This Friday signals the start of the Easter programme and it’s another chance for us to keep the points tally ticking over,” he told STFC Player. “We have taken four points from our last two matches and we have to keep, or better, that points total over this weekend. 

“The League One table is very tight and we now have seven games to go. It is going to be a tight run-in and the outcome of the promotion race looks like going all the way to the final day of the season.”

MacDonald also outlined the current injury situation and reserved special praise for one of the STFC Youth scholars.

“There are one or two injuries around the camp at the moment,” he continued. “Jay McEveley missed the game against Notts County with a slight knee injury whilst Tommy Miller had to come off early in the second half with a dead leg. Tommy didn’t train in the early part of this week but hopefully he will be available for selection again on Friday. 

“I thought Alan McCormack did very well at left-back and Louis Thompson made an impression when he came on too. Considering Louis had been away with Wales Under-21’s for most of the week in the build-up to the game, he did very well.”
