Coventry City midfielder John Fleck says that the Sky Blues will not lose focus ahead of tomorrow's clash with the Glovers at the Ricoh Arena, and that he believes that the squad can make the play-offs.

With the new additions that manager Steven Pressley made before the transfer window closed, the man from Glasgow believes that the team has enough quality to make the play-offs.

Fleck played all 90 minutes of the Sky Blues 1-0 win over Gillingham last Friday, and the electric atmosphere at the Ricoh Arena was not lost on the Scottish playmaker.

"The Gillingham game was great," he said, "The fans were loud, and the atmosphere was excellent. We have a real excitement surrounding the place at the moment, and hopefully we can keep that going tomorrow.

"I thought we all played well, no-one had a bad game. With everything going on, we really wanted those three points, and we got them."

Debutant Frank Nouble scored the only goal against the Gills, and Fleck believes that with he, along with the other new signings, can make the difference in City's push for a top six finish.

"It's a really good atmosphere we have going on at the training ground. We have youngsters who are pushing to keep experienced players out of the team.

"We definitely have the squad (to make the play-offs), at the moment there is no set target in our mind. I think we just want to push up the league as far as we can, anything is possible.

"It's all about the momentum, if we can keep getting results, and keep this unbeaten run going, then why not?"

Although the season is still in its infancy, Fleck believes that there is more to come from the team, as well as his own personal performances.

"When looking at last season, we have kept more clean sheets, which is great. We all have to chip in to remain defensively strong.

"Personally it's been a mixed start for me. Some performances I think have been a little sub-par but I will improve."
