JACK HUNT continued preparations for Huddersfield Town’s Galpharm clash with Notts County on Sunday (4.00) and insisted: “We’re only looking above us in the table.”
Lee Clark’s side go into the Sky Sports-televised showdown looking to set a new club record of 18 league games unbeaten in a single season and stay second in League I.
Both Southampton, who drew 1-1 at Charlton, and Peterborough, who lost 1-0 at MK Dons, missed the chance to knock Town out of the automatic promotion places this week.
While Saints don’t have a match this weekend, Posh are at Bristol Rovers tonight, but Hunt knows a three-point haul against Notts will keep Town on track.
“People talk about Southampton and Peterborough having games in hand, but as we saw this week, they don’t always translate into wins,” said the 20-year-old right-back who is hoping for a 14th Town appearance since returning from his loan spell at League II leaders Chesterfield.
“We’ve not got to worry about what goes on behind us, just focus on what we’re doing.
“When I came back from my loan at the turn of the year the manager set us a target of averaging two points a game.
“If we do that then we’ve a good chance of winning promotion and from what I understand we’re above that target now, so things are going to plan.
“It’s a little disappointing that we haven’t managed to pull away. But we can’t worry about what other teams do, except possibly (leaders) Brighton, who can still be caught.”
Town are hunting a fourth win in five against Paul Ince’s Notts after being held goalless at home to Swindon last Saturday.
Hunt added: “We tried hard to break them down and created a lot of chances. They hit a post, but that was against the run of play.
“It was frustrating because I thought we played better than we did at Brentford and yet we won down there. It was just one of those days.
“We have to focus on the positives, like keeping a clean sheet. We also equalled a club record (set back in 1924-25) and that’s brilliant for everyone at the club.
“Now we want to make it a new record and get another win, and we’re well capable.”
