Chippenham Town manager Mark Collier will continue to look up and not down after his side broke the 45-point mark when beating Hungerford at Hardenhuish Park on Saturday, the Wiltshire Times report.

The Bluebirds sit five points short of the play-off frame with 11 fixtures remaining and could upset the odds by poaching a late spot in the top seven.

Outstanding games against the division’s top three – Torquay, Woking and Chelmsford – will undoubtedly provide Collier’s troops with a tough run-in.

However, the Town boss insists his side can play their remaining games with little pressure on their shoulders – knowing it would take a minor miracle for Hungerford, East Thurrock and Weston Super Mare to overhaul the Wiltshire club’s current points tally.

He said: “We must look up and not down.

“There are 10 games remaining, we’ve got difficult games ahead of us in those fixtures – Torquay, Chelmsford and Woking.

“Those are great games for us to be playing in as we develop.

“The pressure becomes less and less – we’ve hopefully secured our place in next season’s Conference South already.”
