Lowestoft Town midfielder Andrew Fisk feels the club have turned the corner after a difficult couple of years.

The Blues have been dogged by financial problems off the field, which culminated in them almost losing their step three status last season.

However, Gary Keyzor's return as chairman along with the appointment of Jamie Godbold as manager this summer has helped stabilise the club.

Three consecutive wins has only contributed to the feelgood factor around the Amber Dew Events Stadium and Fisk believes the young squad have bought into the new approach on the east coast.

'There's a freshness about the place,' said Fisk, who will be at the heart of the Blues' midfield this afternoon when they travel to bottom side Bedworth. 'Obviously Godders (Godbold) and Reyns (Reynolds – assistant manager) are Lowestoft through and through. They have got a certain way of playing which is showing.

'There are some young lads coming through who are really keen and willing to learn. They're willing to take information from some of the senior lads like myself and implement it on the pitch.

'It's helping some of the senior lads like myself and at the moment we couldn't have really asked for a better start.'

Fisk was at his competitive best in the 1-0 win against King's Lynn on Monday, snapping into challenges and never allowing the Linnets a moment's rest to establish their passing game.

It's been a tough period for Fisk, who has was blighted by injury last season but he hopes to have finally put the problems behind him.

'Monday was my sort of game and I won my fair share of tackles and that helped get us up the pitch,' he added. 'It was pleasing just to get the three points. We didn't get the ball down but it was about having the right attitude and I thought we were spot on. It was disappointing to get injured before the start of the season but I've been working hard to get back as soon as possible and I'd love to have an injury-free season.

'We've had a free week so hopefully I can get a bit more fitness into my legs before going again.'
