Evans joined Graham Alexander's squad at the start of the month following his release from Rotherham and played in the back-to-back defeats to Northampton and Bristol Rovers that leave the Cod Army outside the play-off places on goal difference.

Nevertheless the 24-year-old winger is convinced the Blue Square Bet Premier champions have what it takes to step up for the second consecutive campaign.

"I think the aim is to go up, it's as simple as that really," Evans said.

"Whether that's through the play-offs or it's automatic promotion we'll have to see, but the squad's definitely good enough. I've played in a few teams in League Two now and I know a good team when I see one.

"There's some really, really decent players here and with this manager in charge and the set-up and the backroom staff that he has there's everything in place for the club to go up to League One, without a shadow of a doubt."
