Boss Gavin Cowan insists AFC Telford United should not even be thinking of the play-off places, the Shropshire Star report.

The Bucks climbed up to sixth in National North, three points off second-placed Kidderminster Harriers, after a dramatic late win over York City on Saturday. It was Telford’s first win in five league outings, after a purple patch in the early weeks of the season had seen them rising high at the summit.

Cowan admitted people may laugh at the old cliche, taking each game as it comes, but the Bucks boss believes that is all his side can do at the moment.

He said: “We started the season with consistency but since then we have not been consistent.

“We can’t even think about the play-offs, we will take each game as it comes. That is an old cliche that people will laugh at but it is what we need to do.

“Top half is a realistic success for this club with the finances it has, so we can’t shout our mouths off about the play-offs.

“Anyone can beat anyone, and the consistent teams will be successful.”
