Mark Yates wants to finish the season strongly to send the club’s new owners into the summer on a high.

With 11 games to go, he does not believe midtable Reds can reach the Play-offs but wants to steer well clear of the relegation zone.

Yates said: “We’ve got 33 points to play for, as many points as we can.

“Ever since I walked into the club I’ve always been a realist and don’t think we are going to get into the Play-offs.

“I want to make sure we don’t get sucked into that bottom bit. But I think we’re better than that.

“And it’s just about us now finishing the season properly, getting as many points as we can and finish the season on a high, take the new regime into a positive summer and build from there.”
