TOUGH midfield worker Jon Worthington reckons competition for places will keep fired-up Town on the promotion track for the rest of this season.
The 20-year-old goes into tomorrow's high-profile clash with York City at Bootham Crescent (3.00) looking for a third goal in four matches.
More importantly, he wants to help Peter Jackson's side chalk a sixth successive win and match the record of Steve Bruce's Town late in 1999.
"We are on an impressive run and we want to keep pushing forward from here," commented Worthington, before today's Storthes Hall training session.
"The spirit in the changing room is fantastic at the moment, we are looking forward to every match and the only danger, I suppose, is complacency.
"We have already been warned about that, but we are in a good position in the table and, if we can, we want to keep things going against York tomorrow."
Worthington is delighted Town will have 3,000-plus fans at Bootham Crescent - another incentive to try and reverse the 1-0 defeat suffered against Chris Brass's men earlier in the season.
"The fans have been really tremendous and I think they are enjoying this winning run as much as we are," he said.
"We have always had the basis of a good team and our squad is strong, with genuine competition for places.
"Last weekend against Boston, people like John Thorrington weren't even on the bench and the players injured included Andy Booth, Tony Carss, Ian Hughes and Paul Scott.
"When the injured lads come back, it can only be good for the squad and it can only be another incentive for the lads in the team - because everyone is wanting to play well and keep their shirt."
Town are back down to seventh place following Lincoln's 2-0 win last night at Doncaster, who missed the chance to go top.
