DAN THE FAN: An In-form Kaiyne Woolery can lead us into playoff picture


After witnessing one of the worst performances from a Town side in many years at Broadhall Way a few weeks ago, I was certain our campaign was done and dusted.

I convinced myself this season was nothing more than just counting down the days before we can make a promotion push in 2020.

But Town picking up seven points from a possible nine in the last few games has forced me to starting looking again at the League Two table.

Richie Wellens’ side sit four points from the playoffs with a game in hand, normally you would pass this glimmer of hope off as wishful thinking, but with the teams above Town producing inconsistent results on a weekly basis it’s reopened the door to a possible playoff finish.

One of the key reasons our season is back on track with a shout of success is the superb performance from Kaiyne Woolery at Gigg Lane on Saturday.

When he first arrived in the summer of 2017 he brought with him a big price tag for the fourth tier of English football (£350K), and made an instant impact scoring the equalising goal as a substitute against Exeter at the County Ground.

For those 45 minutes he looked unstoppable with the ball at his feet running at defenders, he seemed to have all the attributes needed to be a big success.

But as we all know it didn’t quite go to plan last season as he was in and out of the team with niggling injuries and when he was fit the then manager David Flitcroft never gave him a long run in the side.

Since returning from injury in October 2018 he again didn’t get to show what he is capable of in a Town shirt, but over the last few games after a decent run in the first team picture the manager is starting to see the player we saw in August 2017, as last Saturday he had by far his best performance in a Town shirt.

If his form can continue throughout the rest of the season, alongside Theo Robinson and Keshi Anderson, then the top seven won’t be just a distant dream.

If our season is to have any meaning Town have to take all the points this Saturday as we welcome Yeovil Town to the County Ground.

With the Glovers level on points with the trapdoor to the National League they will be fighting for their lives to earn something this weekend. It promises to be an entertaining encounter at SN1 this Saturday.
