EXPERIENCED coach Terry Yorath believes Town's sights remain firmly fixed on winning a play-off place this season.
Disappointed by Saturday's 2-0 derby defeat by Barnsley which dropped them to 10th in the table, Yorath feels it's all part of a fierce learning curve for a talented squad.
"We will win far more games this season than we lose, I'm absolutely positive about that," said Yorath.
"There's a great spirit in the team and the club and as long as they keep that together and don't start bickering about anything, we will be okay.
"I would like to think we are worth a play-off place at least this season.
"That's not putting pressure on anyone, it's just a judgment from the things I've seen and the great performances against Hull and Port Vale.
"That's the standard we've set for ourselves, not the first half on Saturday when we let ourselves down and were defensively very poor."
Yorath was unhappy with Town's free kicks and corners and added:
"We flattered at times, but we didn't have that cutting edge and Luton are the only team in our division being consistent at the moment.
"People have to remember we've come up a division with a youngish side and the more we work on it, the more consistency we'll get into the players. It won't come from criticism, just practising to improve the things we are not so good at."
