Saturday’s win over Ossett Albion was pretty similar to the last few games.

The pitches at this time of year aren’t ideal for playing football but we stayed in the game at 0-0 before getting another late winner.

It’s another clean sheet and another three points to keep the ball rolling as our perfect start to 2015 continued.

It was no surprise to see Tom Kilifin on the scoresheet again.

He’s the kind of player that can not be involved in the game for 80 minutes before popping up with the goods.

Killer put the ball in the back of the net when we needed it on Saturday and that’s what he does best.

You know when he gets a chance it’s invariably going to be a goal.

Next up we travel to Warrington Town who made headlines earlier in the season with their FA Cup run.

They’ve got quite a few games in hand because of that but I think history tells us in this league that it’s better to have the points on the board.

The FA Cup takes a lot out of you physically and mentally and they’ve gone from playing in front of crowds of a couple of thousand to a couple of hundred.

But they’re a big club at this level and are five games unbeaten but we’re going into the game full of confidence.

For us it’s just about keeping going as we are.

We’re not necessarily setting the world alight with our football but we’re winning games and that’s what matters.

We’re grinding out 1-0 wins in games that we might have lost 1-0 before Christmas.

The league is still all over the place in terms of games played, with Warrington an example of that, but we know that if we keep our own house in order and keep getting results we’ll climb the table as it rights itself.
