Norwich City's on-loan midfielder Cameron McGeehan is savouring his own promotion battle after boosting Luton's League Two play-off bid.
McGeehan notched his sixth goal of the season in the Hatters' 3-0 home league win over Hartlepool at the weekend to keep John Still's men on the fringes of the top six with two games left.
Luton sit just outside the play-offs on goal difference, but wrap up their campaign against promotion rivals Southend and Stevenage.
'We have a massive game at Southend and I can't wait for that,' he said. 'If we can get a good result there and then at home to Stevenage hopefully the play-offs and Wembley beckons.'
McGeehan is targeting a notable Kenilworth Road promotion double after a loan return to the club he helped secure Conference promotion 12 months ago.
'Yes, it is exciting,' he said. 'We're all really up for the challenge. Things had slipped away for us recently but now we have hit a good run of form and this is the important part of the season.
'There is no reason we can't win our remaining two games and I have no doubt if we do that then we will be in the play-offs. The gaffer here has shown he wants to push young players through and we saw that last season when I was here. He is a good manager but he is amazing at the recruitment of good young players and collectively we are doing well.'

McGeehan admitted Luton could not afford to slip up against relegation-threatened Hartlepool.
'We've managed to take the pressure off ourselves because there was a point maybe when it was all getting on top of us when we went through a run of not winning,' he told Luton's official site. 'We've managed to rediscover the form that was there earlier in the season. We go the early goal and that settled everyone down and I thought we played well. They were fighting for their lives but you didn't really see that in the first half so it was important to get the third goal to see it out.
'I don't score too many with my head but that was my sixth of the season and I am really happy with that as I only really started playing in the second half of the season. It is good to get my tally going and hopefully I can add to that in the next two games. I managed to score three towards the end of last season at Luton and have done that again and hit some goalscoring form.'
