It’s all about building momentum in the remaining three matches of the season for Forest Green’s wide midfield starlet Elliott Frear.
The former Exeter City man has played a starring role in Rovers best ever league campaign and will once again look to influence proceedings when Woking visit The New Lawn on Saturday.
He’ll be part of the FGR line up from a visit from a mid-table Woking side who offer a good test for Ady Pennock side’s penultimate scheduled home tie of the campaign.
With Forest Green six points behind the league leaders with three matches to go, it’s going to take a major twist for a swing between first and second place, so the play-offs once again look the likely outcome, and Frear wants to build some form and rhythm in the remainder of April.
“We are looking for momentum. We’ve come off a few sticky results, not getting beaten, but a few draws that we didn’t really want,” he said.
“We need momentum now if we are in the play-offs to go in there firing. The carrot for all of us is Wembley and a lot of us here haven’t played there before.
“It would be really good to get there but we’ve got to concentrate on the next three games and get as many points as possible.”
In his second season at the club, Frear has built on his impressive first 12 months by playing a key role in the team this season.
There’s no doubting he could be a major figure in any potential play-off clashes, and he wants to play his part by helping FGR get into the Football League for the first time with clashes against FC Halifax and Dover also still to come.
“I want to finish off the season well. I have had quite a good season and I want to keep that going into the big games and if we are in the play-offs, in the play-offs,” he continued.
“Throughout the season we have been in the top two all season so everyone who comes to us and wants to beat us.”
A Woking side who ended Forest Green’s nine consecutive game winning run at the start of the season are the visitors on Saturday.
It’s the first of three ties at the end of the season that’ll see Frear and his teammates roll into the likely play-off fixtures flowing with confidence, and he knows it is important for everyone at the club on and off the field to be singing from the same hymn sheet for all remaining games.
“They’re not going to come here and lie down and let us beat them. They’ve got some good players but if we turn up we’ll get a result.
“It’s a cliché I know but the fans are the 12th man, and when they’re on it, we’re on it.
“If we can get as many people there as possible in the next three games to push us on into the play-offs then hopefully we can win at Wembley.”
