Still on the promotion push

Having lost just twice all season – and not once in their last 11 matches in the Skrill Premier – John Still is a happy man.

“If I look at it overall so far this season I’m pleased,” he said at his Thursday press conference.

'Never too high, never too low', is one of the manager’s many catchphrases that the local media have been accustomed to since his arrival in the Kenilworth Road hotseat in March last season.

And while Still knows the Hatters won’t always have it their own way between now and the end of the season, he’s is expecting his side to push on in the final two thirds of the campaign.

“To lose just two league games in a season so far is testament to how hard the players have worked physically and mentally to put us in a position where we’re in with a great opportunity to get promotion,” said Still.

“We’ve played, in my head, the first third of the season and we’re into the second third of the season.

“The first third of the season has been terrific, the second third of the season we have to cement that and the last third of the season we have to push, push, push.

“We’ve played Cambridge, Kidderminster, Grimsby, the ones who are in that group with us and not been beaten.

“That tells me we have the qualities that are needed to compete against the so called best teams, or the teams who are doing well at this time.

“I believe our team has grown from the first six games. We’ve shown we don’t concede and we’ve shown we can score.

“At the moment, I’m well pleased with what we’ve done and where we are.

“There’s bound to be some lows for all of the teams, it wouldn’t be football if it wasn’t.

“But it’s how you respond to a low and we’ve shown we can respond well.”
