It is important that we now start to push on and remain positive because that is what our chairman Dave Holland would have wanted.

Our last game against Ossett Town, which finished goalless, was huge, both emotionally because of the importance of it.

I admire the lads because they dug in against a good Ossett side and you have to remember that it was just a few hours after Dave had passed away.

Many teams would have folded, but the lads dug in for Dave.

We have had a long lay-off since then and now the lads are raring to get back into the action.

We have nine games left, all of them are tough, but we have to continue to show our grit.

If we can go on a run then we’ll be in there at the end of the season, and I know the lads don’t want to throw away all of the hard work they have put in.

There will be weird results and all the teams around us will beat each other.

From now on we are not too bothered about both Farsley and Lancaster, but they could help us along the way by taking points off our rivals.

We have had a blip, which has hopefully been ended by a good point against Ossett, despite this frustrating time we are still in there with a shout of the play-offs.

Dave’s dream was to gain promotion this season and we will be looking to make his dream come true.
