SUMMED up the spirit in Town's camp when he confirmed: "We are now setting sights on getting automatic promotion."
The 23-year-old grabbed his fifth and sixth goals of the season to put the seal on a win which moved Town up to their highest League placing of the season - fourth.
"The manager said to us before the game that we were setting our sights on automatic promotion because there was no reason why we couldn't go for a top-three place," said Schofield.
"If it doesn't happen, then we'll go for the play-offs at least, but we are giving every game 110% at the moment and we are on a great run as we look forward to the Oxford match on Saturday."
Schofield is enjoying his creative role but was delighted to weigh in with a couple of goals.
"The first one just bounced nicely for me to hook it away from the keeper and the second came from a good build-up and a great touch from Pav.
"I didn't have to break my stride as I got the ball and I just got enough on the shot to lift it over the keeper as he came off his line."
Schofield believes Abbott has made a big impact and explained: "Even on the first day in training you could see he had a lot about him.
"He is strong, holds the ball up and gets other people into the game and, best of all for a striker, he has got a great eye for goal.
"You can't argue with three goals in three games but all the lads are doing well. Yeovil passed us to death down there, now we've done it to them."
