Coates wants Crues to keep up the chase

By Graham Luney

Crusaders skipper Colin Coates wants his comrades to keep their foot on the gas.

After celebrating seven straight wins in all competitions and progressing to the semi-finals of the County Antrim Shield, League Cup and IRN-BRU Cup, Stephen Baxter's side want to keep the good times rolling as they welcome Carrick Rangers to Seaview this afternoon.

"We're feeling good, playing in loads of different competitions," said former Northern Ireland international Coates.

"We just keep rolling on. It was also nice to keep a clean sheet - we haven't done that as often as we would have liked. We are starting to look a bit more like ourselves again.

"It's probably fair to say we played in fits and starts for five or six games early on, even though we hadn't been doing all that badly. It was only because Coleraine and Glenavon started so well that we are playing catch up a bit. We'll just focus on looking after ourselves and hopefully turn the seven unbeaten games into a 12 or 13 run.

"We need to start reeling in the top two.

"We know they are going to drop points at some stage of the season.

"It means we have to keep winning to capitalise on that.

"To be honest, at this stage of the season, we don't look at league tables.

"We just look at the next game and hopefully we can go on to win it. Once it comes to February or March, the table starts to become a bit more interesting."
