IT is not the end to the season we had envisaged earlier in the year, but the visit of Weymouth to the Racecourse tomorrow gives us one last opportunity to round off what has been a topsy-turvy campaign with a bit of a bang.
I’m sure many fans might be sceptical about our prospects of a winning end to the campaign, but we realise the need to give them the sort of performance that their fantastic support all season deserves.
It’s been extremely frustrating in the last few matches because we’ve been letting in a goal every time and we are not scoring ourselves.
We need to try and get that right tomorrow, especially as it might still be a very important game for Weymouth.
Obviously Bobby Gould’s side were playing at York City last night, so we could be facing one of two different teams at the Racecourse tomorrow – either one that has got to win to stay up or one that has already been relegated.
Although it’s more important that we concentrate on ourselves and our own performance it could be a big game for them and we need to be ready.
It says everything about the way our campaign has unravelled that outside the club much of the talk seems to be about what the future holds and what might or might not be happening in the close season.
That’s not been a topic of conversation for us because we tend to take things from day to day and simply look ahead to the next game.
We aren’t getting ahead of ourselves because we’ve still got the season to finish and we want to go out with a win under our belts.
Only next week will we find out what the gaffer’s plans are for the summer. Some managers like their squads to come in occasionally during the break and others tend to favour a complete break until the back end of June.
My own plans include a couple of weeks holiday, but after that I’ll be doing my best to keep in shape.
After a break of more than two weeks your body tends to start losing the fitness that has been accumulated and that’s when you have to start going again, so I’ve got a combination of long runs and weight training to look forward to.
