RUDY FUNK: No play-off thoughts yet, focus on next fixture

As I have always said this season we have to take one game at a time, there will be no looking at play-offs.

It is important that we don’t get ahead of ourselves, we have been playing well, but we are not the finished article.

There is still a lot of work to do, though we are all looking forward to every game we play in.

The interaction in the camp is first class, it is a very happy ship.

At the moment the squad is at a minimum, so obviously we will be looking at players.

The feelers have already been put out and we are hoping to bring a couple of players in shortly.

We do want to improve the squad, but if you look at things we do have a good bench at the moment.

Looking forward to Saturday’s game we will be without Ben Middleton at right-back, but it is one in one out because Paul Foot will be at 100 per cent once again.

Paul has had a difficult start to the season with injuries, but we are hoping now that he will have a run in the side and cement his place.

There is other good news as Chris Bolder and Joe Lamplough both return to full fitness after knocks and we had our keeper Jason White doing some light training on Tuesday night, so he shouldn’t be far away.

Saturday will be another test for us because Carlton will be a young quick side, similar to my former club Rainworth on Tuesday.

If you look at Rainworth, they played some good stuff on the night, but when we play as well as that we will always cause teams a lot of problems.

I think Rainworth were lucky to get off as lightly as they did.
