THRILLED Peter Jackson celebrated his second Manager of the Month Award today by setting sights on winning another.
Powering along in Division III just nine months after his return to the club, the fans' favourite knows Town will win automatic promotion if he adds the April award to those for January and March.
It's a fantastic incentive as Town head to Leyton Orient on Saturday looking for a fourth win in five matches to close a six-point gap on second-placed Hull, who won 2-1 at Boston last night.
Supporters are warming to the promotion chase as well, with over 2,000 expected to make the trip to Orient and with Town today selling out a total allocation of 3,844 for the April 24 trip to Hull's KC Stadium.
"I'm thrilled to be Manager of the Month again and it's a credit to how well the players have performed," said Jackson today.
"We have scored some excellent victories against challengers like Yeovil and Oxford and we've thumped teams like Macclesfield and Swansea to put ourselves right in the thick of the promotion hunt.
"All I want the lads to do now is carry on playing like they have been, because if I'm named Manager of the Month for April then we know we are up!"
Jackson seems certain to name an unchanged starting line-up at the Matchroom Stadium, where Orient are looking for a first win in nine matches.
Town, in fact, have a poor record at the old Brisbane Road - apart from the promotion seasons of 1982-83 and 1994-95, when they won on each occasion.
Andy Booth was in that 1995 team, when Town won with goals from Iain Dunn and a Ronnie Jepson penalty.
"Orient will not be easy, but if we play like we can then I'll be disappointed if we don't come back with a win," said Jackson.
"It's all about how we do and a clean sheet is the first priority.
"We have conceded only nine goals in 16 matches and that's tremendous. It shows a team which defends from the front with Boothy and Pav (Abbott), works hard in midfield and is solid at the back.
"Paul Rachubka has conceded just twice in his five matches on loan and I bet he hasn't had four shots to save. That's how well we've defended and that's the sort of form I want to see repeated on Saturday."
Jackson wants to build on the display against Swansea but admits performance is no longer the main issue.
"With eight matches left we just want results," he said. "If we are awful on Saturday and win with the last kick, I won't be doing any complaining.
"The lads can't wait to get cracking, though, and I know they are keen to play well again.
"The commitment, effort and overall play last Saturday was excellent, so if we carry on from where we left off, fine."
