BULLETS boss Dean Stokes is gunning for next season after another disappointing result on Saturday.
The player-manager reckons he has already identified what changes need to be made to improve things for next term, and cannot wait to get started.
But he insists his side's final three games - starting at Ossett Albion on Saturday - must still be taken seriously.
Stokes said: 'After being in charge since January, I feel I've seen enough to know what I want and what I need to do. I am really looking forward to next season already. But I still want to get a few more points on the board.'
A 25-goal striker is surely top of Town's shopping list after they were guilty of missing a host of chances against Goole, in their fourth successive defeat.
Alsager fell behind on the half hour when Brad Hill headed past keeper Matt Conkie, but Crewe Alex loan man Gareth Evans cracked home a 20-yarder to level soon after.
The visitors hit the front in the 52nd minute, when Martin Thacker volleyed home from a deep cross. Alsager then had plenty of play and created good chances.
The other Alex loan youngster, Amari Morgan-Smith, was guilty of missing most, along with Simon Eldershaw. And Alsager paid the price when Goole increased their lead through James McDaid.
Evans rattled the crossbar from 25 yards and Morgan-Smith squandered an open goal before winning a penalty when brought down in the box.
Substitute Danny Smith dispatched the spot-kick, but his side could not find the net again in the four minutes that remained.
