IT'S great to see Town showing the sort of form right now which brings you success.
Five wins on the trot is a terrific run at any level of the game and, at this time of the year, it's just what you need.
It's a tremendous credit to Peter Jackson, the coaching staff and the players and they'll be going into Sunday's match at York with confidence going through the roof.
As a player, there is no better feeling than when you are winning games.
You feel invincible, and everyone puts in that extra little bit without thinking about it.
I know that's how it was for us when we were winning the old Second Division title back in the 1969-70 season.
Those were great days and, when I was looking through the old record books the other day, I noticed we lost only one match (1-0 down at Millwall) in the entire second half of the season.
That's some record, and it's just the sort of consistency Jacko would love to get from his lads at the moment.
No-one expects any team to win every game, but if you can keep picking up points - even when you are a little off song and don't play that well - it just keeps the confidence flowing.
The great thing about a winning run is that it puts a smile on the faces of the fans as well.
It didn't surprise me at all to read in the Examiner that Town have had to ask for their maximum allocation of tickets for the game at York.
Fans love to see their team win, however they are playing, and it's a great buzz for any player to see the ground full with your own fans.
The thing you need to keep a run like this going is mental toughness, because when you are up at the top, everyone is trying to knock you off your pedestal.
We were a strong side back in 1970 and managed by a very strong character in Ian Greaves.
We would have run through a brick wall for Greavesie, and I get the feeling that the current squad like playing for Jacko.
It seems everyone is walking around the a spring in their step and long may it continue, because we all want to see the club going in the right direction once again.
These have been a lean few years and, when you get on a downward spiral, it's hard to turn things around.
There seems to be an optimism right around the club at the moment, though, and that suggests there is the belief things are going well.
Peter will keep on demanding more from the players, because you can never afford to relax in football, and if they could go back up at the first time of asking that would be wonderful for everyone who supports the club.
