Gavin Cowan: AFC Telford in control of their destiny

Boss Gavin Cowan insists AFC Telford United are in control of their own destiny as they aim to seal a play-off place.

Tuesday night’s important 2-1 victory at Bradford Park Avenue bumped the Bucks up a spot to sixth in National League North.

They are four points ahead of Kidderminster Harriers, who are just outside the play-offs in eighth, having played a game less. And Cowan said: “The league table shows we are well placed and nothing I can say can deter anyone from that.

“It speaks for itself and it is in our hands now, it is up to us.

“There will be variables between now and the end of the season because football is football.

“The next seven games will be entertaining games, we need to stay reliable and efficient and keep our eye on the prize.

“We went up a place (on Tuesday night) and took advantage of a game in hand.

“We are in a good place but only if we back it up on Saturday and that is what we intend to do.”

Telford host Blyth Spartans on Saturday and a couple of changes could be made in the interest of freshness. Darryl Knights was left out of the squad at Avenue due to fatigue and, on the rotation, Cowan added: “It shows the group we have because we rested Darryl Knights from the squad, we couldn’t get Adam Dawson on and we have Judd Ellis, who has done well in training, on the bench.

“We have a group, not a team or a squad, we have a group.”
