Lowestoft Town look to have turned a corner after taking seven points from the last nine – but you won't find manager Ady Gallagher resting easy.

The Trawlerboys followed up their 3-0 win over Bradford Park Avenue with a 0-0 draw against Hednesford on Tuesday night at Crown Meadow to help Gallagher's men pull five points clear of the relegation zone.

They head to Chorley this weekend with the club's chances of securing their Conference status strengthened thanks to their recent form, but Gallagher knows the job isn't done yet.

'Taking seven points from nine is a real positive for us – they were three very different games and I'm delighted with the effort the lads put in, particularly on Tuesday.

'We were clearly tiring towards the end but that didn't stop us still trying to find a way to win the game.

'But now's not the time to think we've done it. It's very important we build on this because we don't want to be down there come the end of the season.'

Jake Reed limped off in Tuesday's draw but the Blues top goalscorer should be fit to make the trip to Victory Park. 'We brought him off as a bit of a precaution. He hasn't played a lot of football lately and was carrying an ankle knock but he should be fine.'
