Left back, or centre half - it matters not - Alan Sheehan has said that the last week and the performances we have put in over the last three games has really given the team hope and belief in our brilliant little 'Great Escape' PR campaign.
It's brought a smile to a few fans' faces and also received some cynicism given our results, but the last week has changed all that and with victories over Carlisle United, Crewe Alexandra and Colchester United Sheehan says there is really now a sense of belief that we can pull this off, and it's just hope anymore, it's real.
Speaking to the Official Site following our third victory on the trot, Sheehan was full of praise for the campaign and he says that with the fans taking to it so well, it really has helped the players.
'It's brilliant, credit where it's due because I think it's fitting. We really do believe in the Great Escape, the manager's been saying it for weeks that we're a team, we're together and the belief is there. A lot of people might have lost that a couple of weeks ago and there might have been a doubt before the week we've just had. We've not achieved anything yet but it was a good week and we're right back in the mix now.'
Next up is Brentford and their league placing alone says how difficult a game it will be for us, and maybe four wins on the trot is a 'Great Escape - Expectation' too far, but at the very least we need to be looking to keep this unbeaten run going and take what would be a very valuable point as things stand ahead of the match itself.
One thing that Sheehan thinks will play in our favour when we face them is they have the weight of expectation on them for promotion, but we are well bouyed by moving out of the relegation places but still in many ways have nothing to lose because we've been written off, so we can show them the respect they deserve, go in as underdogs and really look to make our bark count.
