MATCHWINNER Danny Schofield reckons Town will be ready to pounce if any of the play-off chasers slip up.
Schofield netted the late winner at Peterborough which extended Town's winning run to four and kept them six points off the play-off zone with home matches against Doncaster Rovers and Colchester to come.
Substitute Schofield, who added to Chris Brandon's opener in front of 1,102 travelling fans at London Road, accepts that other clubs are better placed with matches in hand.
But as the squad were given an extra day off following two tough matches in five days, Schofield commented: "If the others start to feel the pressure then we want to be there to pounce.
"We know that other teams are better off, but if they start to slip then we will be there to give it a real go for the top six.
"Everyone is really confident just now, the fans are giving us tremendous backing - they were just brilliant on Saturday - and we are all really determined to make the most of the games that are left. It's not going to be easy, but all we can do is keep on winning and see what happens.
"We can't influence what happens elsewhere, but if we keep doing our bit and keep picking up points, others might start looking over their shoulders."
Schofield's strike, his fifth of an injury-hit season, came seven minutes from time and thwarted Peterborough, who had wiped out Brandon's goal with a Wayne Purser equaliser.
It was a disappointment to concede for Phil Senior, who stepped up at the last minute for a first start since early November when Paul Rachubka's back injury flared again. Danny Adams was drafted onto an all-outfield bench.
Rachubka was under treatment today, as was defender Tom Clarke (bruised eye) as Town look to Saturday's home meeting with Doncaster, when they bid to maintain and unbeaten 2005 record at the Galpharm Stadium.
