Defender Joe Davis says he wants to nail down the right-back spot for the remainder of the season.
The former youth team graduate took over from James Gibbons, who was moved into midfield, for the 0-0 draw against Newport County on Saturday.
Hopefully I can keep my spot in the team for the next couple of games…
He told the media: “There’s a lot of competition for that sort of place [right-back], so if I’ve got a good chance of playing right back and the manager believes I can do a good job there then so be it.
“I like to think I can do a good job in this division.
“The more I play there the more comfortable I get I suppose like any position. It’s new to me but it’s something I don’t mind, I like playing there.
“The lads are good with me, they tell me how they want me to play there, the gaffer’s made it pretty clear he doesn’t expect me to bomb on and get forward and score goals, just base my game around the defensive side of it and that’s what I’ve been trying to do.
“Hopefully I can keep my spot in the team for the next couple of games.”
