Town have gone seven League One matches without a victory following Saturday's 2-2 draw with Shrewsbury, and have slipped down to 10th in the table.

They face a tough December with games against Stevenage, Sheffield United, Portsmouth and Bournemouth, but Barker feels his side will get back on the winning trail sooner rather than later.

He said: "In those seven games we have had four draws and Yeovil mugged us here in the last minute.

"We know we can improve but I don't think we are far away from going on another good run."

Barker will be hoping top scorer Billy Clarke will be fit for Saturday's trip to Stevenage after he missed out against the Shrews with a hamstring injury.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
