NATHAN CLARKE has called on Town's fans to help keep the big home run going tonight (7.45).
The 21-year-old defender - named in the League I team of the week - can't wait to get cracking against Scunthorpe United with the incentive of keeping Town top of the table.
Clarke is delighted with an unbeaten Galpharm run stretching back 15 matches to December and also with Town's splendid start.
And he's hoping for a red-hot atmosphere tonight against Brian Laws' sixth-placed side as Town chase a fourth win on the trot.
"It's brilliant to be top, we're all delighted with the run we're on and we want to keep it going as long as we can," said Clarke, pictured above.
"Two wins over the Bank Holiday weekend were just what we needed and now we've got another testing game to come against Scunthorpe.
"We've been going great guns at home all year, though, and with the fans right behind us tonight I know we'll be determined to get the win."
Clarke has lost both his original partners - Martin McIntosh and David Mirfin - to injury but is now enjoying his partnership with 17-year-old brother Tom.
"It's going well for Tom and he's getting more confident," said Clarke, delighted with his sibling's full call-up to the England Under 19 squad.
"All he needs is a run in the team to get his confidence to the top and, having had a taste of it last season, he's doing brilliantly this time."
Ever-present this season and having missed only two starts since January, Clarke is aware newly-promoted Scunthorpe have started brightly and he's keen to keep three-goal Billy Sharp quiet this evening.
"It's great for the club to have these games coming up thick and fast and all the lads know that if we stick together we will keep on getting three points," he said.
"Scunthorpe, like everyone else, will be going for us because we are top of the League, but we have got a fantastic group of lads at this club and, with the staff being so good, we are one big strong unit.
"That's what makes us so confident at home and, if we can keep more clean sheets than we have been doing, we know we will be up among the challengers at the end of the season."
Clarke believes Monday's 2-1 win at Doncaster proved Town's strength.
"It was going to be a tough game in any case because we were shattered after the win against Hartlepool," he reflected. "On top of that, Doncaster were a very big and physical side, so we had to show a lot of character.
"It was a brilliant result for us, especially as we didn't play that well.
"We know we can produce a lot better than that, but it was good to see Chris Brandon and Jon Worthington on the scoresheet to back up the goals which Pav (Abbott) has been getting.
"Pav and Gary Taylor-Fletcher have been doing really well up front, and I think Danny Schofield and Brandon have been in great form down the flanks.
"They've been in unbelievable form and, when they've got the ball, it's great to see them take people on."
