John Still believes the Town can look forward to the second half of the season – once he has a fully-fit squad to choose from.

The manager has been unable to pick a consistent starting XI this season with a spate of injuries ruling out the likes of Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu, Craig Mackail-Smith, Nathan Doyle and Paul Benson.

But with those niggling injuries finally showing signs of abating, the boss is expecting a strong second half to the campaign in their bid for promotion.

“I think that we’ve played okay,” said Still. “Would I like a few more points than we’ve got? Yes, I would, but not ridiculously more.

“Keeping people fit has been a little bit of a problem for us to get consolidation within our team. It would be good to have a regular Nathan Doyle playing all the time, it would be good to have Paul Benson and Craig Mackail-Smith available all of the time – together – they’d be obvious pluses.

“But it hasn’t – and with that not being quite how we’d quite like it, we’ve still managed to keep ourselves close enough to be able to mount an attack and I’m absolutely delighted with that.

“If we can get as many big players in the team as soon as we can, I think that will make a difference.

“But hopefully all this will come together and make the second half of the season from January onwards, really, really good for us.”
