ANTHONY LLOYD today called on Town's fans to pump up the volume for tonight's clash with Tranmere at the Galpharm Stadium (7.45).
The 20-year-old left wing-back is determined to build on Saturday's win against leaders Luton at Kenilworth Road by inflicting a second successive defeat on Brian Little's side.
He believes supporters can play a vital role by turning up in numbers and making themselves heard as Town aim to move solidly into the play-off placings.
"We had a great win down at Luton and we've just got to look to carry that form into tonight," said Lloyd, who will be making his sixth successive appearance since Rob Edwards' injury.
"If we show the same determination then I'm sure we can take another three points and start climbing the table.
"With the fans behind us, we've no reason to be frightened of anybody in this division - I think we showed that on Saturday - and after beating the top of the league we are all full of confidence.
"Our home form was excellent last season and if we can make the most of the home games we've got to come we should be high and flying."
Lloyd made a big impression last season but lost his place to Edwards at the start of the current campaign and had to be patient to get back in.
He is not the only one and, following David Mirfin's appearance on the bench against Luton, there are now no ever-presents in manager Peter Jackson's line-up.
"It was very upsetting and frustrating to be left out at the start of the season," explained Lloyd.
"I thought I was unfortunate not to get in, but Rob played really well and I just had to show the best form that I could in the Reserves.
"Fortunately, I played quite well, got a couple of goals and thanks to the gaffer, he put me back in when Rob was injured and it's been great.
"I've been really pleased with my form and I thought Saturday was the best I've played all season.
"The thing I'm looking for now is to score in the first team.
"I like to get forward - even more than defending! - and I've definitely got goals in me. I scored a couple last season and I had some chances on Saturday, putting one just over the bar and then shanking a shot in the second half.
"The most important thing was that we got the win. We showed ourselves to be really fit and no-one can argue that we haven't got `bouncebackability.'
"It was all down to the hard work we put in during training in the week, when the gaffer had us doing a lot of closing down.
"He also had us fired up and determined and we need to go in tonight with exactly the same frame of mind.
"The fans on Saturday were brilliant and if we can have the same sort of backing tonight, hopefully we can make sure we create the same sort of home record which put us right at the top of the table last season.
"A clean sheet would be great, because keeping it tight at the back was what made us unbeatable at home last season, and if we can get a few goals then that will be superb.
"If we can follow on from beating the top of the league, then that should give us a lift for the rest of the season."
