GLYNN SNODIN looked ahead to tonight's clash at Peterborough United and told Town's players: "You've set the standard, now maintain it."
Having seen off pacesetters Wolves at the John Smith's on Saturday, third-placed Town now turn their attention to the Championship's basement side.
Posh, who beat Town in the 2011 League I play-off final, consolidated in the second tier last season, but have found the going tough this time.
They have picked up only six points from 33 and lost all five games at London Road, but coach Snodin insisted: "We're not reading anything into that.
"I'm surprised they are down where they are, because they have some good players and they showed what they are capable of by winning at Hull and Barnsley.
"Last season, they played an effective diamond shape and scored a lot but conceded a few too. Now they seem to have gone 5-3-2 to try to stop the goals going in.
"They will be dangerous because they will be desperate to win, and we have to be ready to deal with that.
"We produced some very good football against Wolves, but we have to do that on a regular basis, and that's the challenge facing us.
