Fleetwood centre-half Cian Bolger says he will only look at the League One table when the season ends at home to Port Vale on April 30.
Fleetwood are fourth and moved to within two points of an automatic promotion spot after Bolger’s 61st-minute header clinched a 1-0 win at MK Dons and another three points for Uwe Rosler’s men.
But Bolger, who was named in the EFL’s team of the week after his display at stadium:mk, is not getting carried away and says Town just need to concentrate on themselves ahead of another tough clash at home to Northampton on Saturday.
When asked when he will start paying attention to the table Bolger, 24, said: “May, when the season finishes. We can’t be worrying about any other teams. We just have to focus on our jobs and keep plugging away.
“It is the business end of the season when things happen. We just have to keep concentrating on ourselves.”
Bolger said of his fifth goal of the season: “It was another important one because it was the only goal of the game. The other teams around us dropped points, so that makes the win more important, but we will just keep pushing on and what will be will be.”
The win saw Fleetwood’s unbeaten league run roll on to 16 and it was the team’s eighth clean sheet in that sequence.
And Bolger, who nodded in George Glendon’s corner, says he was confident Town could have success from set-pieces at stadium:mk, where he and Ash Eastham both had efforts cleared off the line prior to the goal.
The fans’ player of the month for January added: “A clean sheet is my objective at the end of the day. A goal is always pleasing, especially if it helps the team to win the game. The run keeps going and I thought we played well
“I was quite confident going into the game that we could get a result. We were confident we could get something from a set-piece so in the second half we kind of put a bit more pressure on them.”
