SKIPPER Jon Worthington today delivered a Christmas message to the Town squad: "Believe in your ability!"
The 22-year-old midfield player heads to Rotherham just one booking away from a two-match ban but his only concern is coming back from Millmoor with three points (12.30).
The Boxing Day clash gives Peter Jackson's side chance to put a three-game stumble behind them and put pressure on the leaders - especially as top side Swansea play second-placed Brentford at Griffin Park.
And Worthington is determined not to miss out in front of around 3,000 travelling fans at the now three-sided South Yorkshire ground.
"Teams always go through tough spells like the one we've just endured and, hopefully, we can turn it around as quickly as possible," said Worthington today.
"It's always nice to have a bit of a gap between yourselves and the teams who are chasing behind, but their isn't a gap any more and that's because everyone wants promotion. Everyone is battling to take points off each other
"There's always pressure like that when you are up at the top of the table and we've got to dig in and rely on our ability as a team - which we know we've got.
"If we do that and perform like we know we can, then I'm confident we will pick up the points we need over the Christmas and New Year games."
As manager Peter Jackson prepares to recall Danny Adams at left-back in his only change to the side which drew 0-0 with Southend at the Galpharm, Worthington is philosophical about a run of two points from nine.
"We're disappointed, obviously, but there are going to be spells in a season where things don't particularly go for you," he said.
"It makes life more difficult, but the important thing for us this holiday is to believe in our ability. If we do just that, we'll be fine."
