Young: We're looking forward to two tough away tests

Lewis Young believes Reds can start looking up the table after a third straight win.

But he also insists there will be no complacency in the camp despite our rise to 14th in League 2 after Saturday’s 2-0 home win over Barnet.

Young created the second of Enzio Boldewijn’s two goals and came desperately close on other occasions to scoring his first goal for the club on what was his 154th appearance.

He said: “We’re on a good run with five wins out of seven and long may it continue.

“We go into each game with a lot of confidence at the moment. We believe we can threaten teams with our forward players and one of the most pleasing things about Saturday was a good clean sheet for the lads at the back.

“We’re in a decent position but no one is going to ease up. The manager will keep working us hard and drilling things into us day in day out in training.”

Lewis agreed that our next two games – away to play-off chasing Newport next Friday and promotion chasing Notts County on Tuesday week – will be a test of how far we’ve improved in recent weeks.

“Absolutely, but you know they are games we look forward to,” he added. “We know that both will be tough but, as I say, we go into each game with a lot of confidence at the moment. We’ve worked hard and know the way the Gaffer wants us to play. We’re aware of each opponent’s threats – but we like to think we’ve got a few of our own as well.”
