YOU would be hard pressed to wipe the smile off Anthony Lloyd's face at the moment.
The Academy product - 20 last month - has kept his place in the starting line-up as Town have powered towards promotion.
It's a scenario he would hardly have dared dream about during the first three months of the season.
Back then, club captain Rob Edwards and talented Tony Carss had the left wing-back berth just about stapled down between them.
While Lloyd made his full debut in the 3-0 home win against Leyton Orient back in September, it was the 6-2 mauling by Scunthorpe over at Glanford Park two months later which prompted manager Peter Jackson to give the Pontefract-based player his chance.
He has never looked back, making 28 starts in an unbroken run and Lloyd commented: "I'm loving it!
"There's not a lot more I can say because the confidence I've got from the manager giving me a shirt every match has just been fantastic.
"I know it's up to me to keep going and prove I'm worth my place, but the whole team are earning the results we need and we are determined to make sure we get automatic promotion."
Lloyd has netted twice this season, against Boston and Rochdale, and is revelling in the pressure of a promotion run.
"The lads have been very positive and, on the way down to Northampton on Tuesday, we were just anxious to get cracking," he said.
"Having beaten Scunthorpe like we did and knowing what happened when we went down to Northampton the other week, when we weren't playing well in the gale force wind which caused the game to be abandoned, we knew we had to give it our all.
"Everyone did, and the fans got right behind us and gave us some brilliant support."
