Manager Wayne Burnett has said he’s relishing our final home game of the season against Northampton Town and he’s determined we will go out with a win.

Having struggled on home soil so far in 2014, Burnett told the Official Site that everybody at the club were determined to end our home season on a high and give the fans something to cheer about.

‘It’s very important, we haven’t give the home fans that much to cheer about as of late. Our home form hasn’t been good at all, so we need to give them something to cheer about I guess.’

Northampton remain in the relegation zone and Burnett knows they will be coming here fighting for their lives and three points because of what it would do for them, and having done the appropriate scouting on them, he knows it’s going to be a tough game and he knows it’ll be a battle for us, and obviously knowing Chris Wilder as he does, he’s hoping they can clinch survival, but not in the game against us obviously.

Having now had any play off chances ruled out, but also being safe from the drop ourselves, Burnett says we are playing for pride and to give the fans something to cheer about, so he won’t be letting the team be complacent over the remaining two matches of the season because he wants us to go out with two wins and hopefully some momentum for next season.

‘It has to come down to personal pride and I look at the game on Monday and we were better than Chesterfield in every department, but the game is about scoring goals. We have to do better than that and I won’t allow them to become complacent.’

The aim is clearly to finish the season on as many points as we can and finish as high as we can, as given where we were this time last year, the gaffer wants our improvement to continue and he knows it would be a crying shame if we wasted all the hard work we had put in this term by slacking off now.
