The Robins' 1-0 victory away to Bury at the weekend was their fifth in six games in all competitions, moving Di Canio's men up to fourth in the table.

The Gigg Lane result also meant the Wiltshire club has now kept six clean sheets in the league, but Ward is not thinking too far ahead.

He told the club's official website: "From our point of view, it may not be the best football in the world, and there are certainly a lot of things to improve on, but ultimately points are the most important thing.

"The last two away wins have been quite tough games but three points from both have been very impressive from us.

"We're up there, but we'd be foolish to start talking about top spot and promotion. We're dealing with it game by game that's all we can do and that's all we should be doing."
