Michael Doyle felt the emphatic 4-0 win we recorded against Eastleigh on Saturday was a fair reflection of the match.
A brace from Kyle Wootton and goals from Kristian Dennis and Cal Roberts fired us to our fifth consecutive win in all competitions, four of which in the league.
And the skipper enjoyed the afternoon.
“We dominated the game from start to finish and that was one of our better performances,” said Doyle.
“We were at it as a team. At the right time, we’re going in the right direction and, with nine games to play, it’s full steam ahead.
“There was hard work from everyone and we fully deserved the scoreline.
“The lads are playing with lots of confidence as well, which is great.
“Hopefully we’re hitting top gear now for the run-in.”
The Irishman feels we’re going in the right direction but knows we’ve got a long way to go before any celebrations are in order.
“The team is on the up,” said Doyle. “There’s a buzz about the place and everyone wants to be part of it.
“Everyone’s fighting for places, fighting for jerseys and there’s competition all over the place, which you’re always going to get that when you’re trying to be successful at the right end of the table.
“We haven’t anything yet. We’ve only won a few games so need to keep focused on the job ahead.
“It’s alright getting the plaudits but we need to brush out the noise because there’s a job to be done.
“If we’re fortunate enough to get promoted, we’ll all celebrate but there’ll be a lot of people asking questions if we’re not.”
The skipper was particularly pleased to see the squad put in such a professional display despite the coronavirus pandemic.
“With the build-up and worrying about other things, you can get caught on the hop but we were on it from the start of the game, which is great,” he explained.
“You just have to be professional about things and prepare to play.
“We have to be ready to play again on Tuesday and come in for training on Monday with the same mentality.”
