Maidenhead winger Sam Barratt is hopeful the club can push as high as possible in the final weeks of the season, and he’s not ruling out a run to the play-offs.
The Magpies remain in the top half of the table after a narrow 1-0 defeat at Macclesfield Town two weeks ago, and a fine run of form could see them close the gap to seventh placed Dover Athletic. They visit Gateshead this afternoon.
It’s a long shot, but Barratt said he’d never write anything off.
“We started the season with the target of just trying to get as high as we could,” said Barratt.
“And to make sure we stayed up. I don’t think that anyone expected us to stay up and around the play-offs being one of only two part-time teams in the division.
“But we’ve done a really good job and hopefully now we can push on, put as many points on the board as we can and finish as high as we can.
“I’d never write anything off, we’ll just go out and try to pick up three points from every game. We’ve still got a bit of work to do but we’re probably now safe.”
