In his latest monthly column, Town captain Liam King looks back on October, looks ahead to Dagenham and Redbridge and discusses fellow midfielders Jordan Sinnott and David Lynch.

Since last month we’ve stepped it up and we won nearly every game in October.

It’s just a shame to finish on that note losing to Brackley, but we’ve had a great month.

We’ve been winning that many that it just felt normal at half-time on Saturday to be winning.

You don’t want to get too complacent and I don’t think we were, but we just looked shell-shocked when they equalised.

Everyone in the stadium was a bit like “oh, we’ve actually conceded a goal!”

But it was never a 3-1 game at all - a draw would have been a fair result.

It was just a bizarre game. We didn’t react very well to conceding the goals and we just had a really poor 10 or 15 minute spell.

But we’ll learn from that. We’ve got ourselves into the play-offs now and we’re getting nearer to where we want to be.

It’s been a positive month and let’s hope we can push on.

Let’s put the Daggers to the sword

We’ve got a tough game at Dagenham and Redbridge on Saturday, we all know that.

We’ve just got to give it our all and try to get a result.

We are the underdogs, but let’s go there and give it a good go, then we’re more than capable of putting another good run together in the league.

We’d have liked a home draw. Ideally you’d like a big club like Sheffield United or somebody in and around you.

But to get a team near the top of the Conference away is a tough draw.

If we play like we have been playing we will have a good chance.

The future’s bright for Jordan

We’ve got a nice combination going in midfield.

Jordan’s getting his goals and having me and David in there is freeing him to get forward.

He’s a young player with a lot of quality and he’s got a bright future ahead of him, but he can’t get complacent. He needs to keep pushing on.

He looks like scoring every game, and we want him to keep scoring because it’s good for the team.

Lynchy is doing what he does - he gets about the pitch and gets the ball back for us. He’s a good presence in there.

I’m the kind of player that can get forward and go the other way - I’m doing a bit of both at the moment but I’m enjoying it.
