TOWN’S striker Andy Booth is targeting the last ten games of the season to make an impact – and scrape a play-off berth.
Booth made a 600th career appearance in Tuesday’s 1-1 draw at MK Dons as he started a game for the first time since September 20 when he was laid low by a back injury.
But, after four substitutes appearances before his starting return, he is looking at the rest of the season as a chance to push the club forward.
“It would be nice to get a run in the starting line-up in the last 10 games of the season,” said Booth.
“We are good enough to go up, but we have left ourselves a mountain to climb.
“I am enjoying life under Lee Clark but he has probably arrived too late for me.”
Town boss Clark was impressed by Booth’s performance at StadiumMK but echoed the striker’s thoughts that the tie up had come too late.
“I have told Boothy – who is somewhere around 45 years old now – that I would have loved to have managed him 15 years ago,” quipped Clark.
“To be honest he put in a terrific performance on Tuesday night and I enjoyed watching him. I would have loved to have been his boss three or four years ago.”
