CONFIDENT Danny Schofield reckons Town's promotion prospects are on the up and admitted today: "It's a brilliant feeling!"
The 25-year-old winger scored the scorching late volley which earned a 1-0 win against Tranmere Rovers at the Galpharm Stadium and sent Peter Jackson's side soaring.
Town are joint top of the table with Swansea and Southend and already five points clear of fourth placed Brentford with two more to spare on the play-off chasers.
Considering Town have played nine of the top 12 teams in League and Cup so far, losing to only two of them, it's a healthy position to be in with Bournemouth due at the Galpharm on Saturday (3.00).
"The lads are buzzing, the fans are right behind us and it's a great feeling at the moment," said Schofield, who presented his man-of-the-match champagne to his mother.
"It was electric when I scored that goal, especially as it had been such a long time in coming, and it just shows the team spirit we've got that we kept plugging away right to the end.
"We said even before the game that we wanted six points from these two home games and now we've got three we can't wait for the Bournemouth game to come along.
"It's fantastic to look at the table and see us right up there at the top, we couldn't have asked for a better start really and the next objective is to start opening up the gaps on the teams below us.
"We all know we are playing some really good football at the moment and long may it continue. If it does, then hopefully we will be right up there come May."
Jackson reported no injuries from the game and he will watch David Mirfin make his return to action in the Reserves tonight against Sheffield Wednesday at the Galpharm (7.00).
