Stirling Albion goalkeeper Chris Smith insists no-one at the Binos is getting carried away – despite a fantastic run of form propelling them to the fringes of the play-offs.
Stuart McLaren’s side have won six out of their last seven games in all competition and are now only two points adrift of fourth place ahead of today’s visit of leaders Annan.
But experienced keeper Smith admits they are keeping their feet firmly on the ground.
He said: “There’s still a long way to go, it’s not even Christmas yet but if we keep playing well and working hard hopefully we can be in and about those promotion places come the end of the season.
“I think all the boys will agree that we’ve had it in us, it’s a really good place to be at just now and we’re picking up results which is great.
“The management team have been great, I worked with Martyn Corrigan at Stenny so I knew him really well and there is the gaffer.
“I’ve been getting on great with him, he’s a hard working honest guy.
“It’s a great place to play football, everyone gets on and it’s good to have an environment like that.”
Smith insists this afternoon’s clash with Annan will be no different to any other game in the league despite their visitors sitting at the summit.
He added: “All the games in this division are hard, teams have been well organised and I think it’s hard to gauge where you are because the league is so competitive.
“We just have to make sure we go into the game and apply ourselves.”
