Hiram Boateng is calling on his Exeter City teammates to put in the necessary work between now and May 5 so they can finish the season strongly.
City face a hectic fixture schedule between now and the first weekend in May, with 11 games to play. However, Hiram says it is an opportunity they should relish with the automatic promotion places still in their sights
“The hard work doesn’t stop,” he said. “We have to keep ourselves in good tick and we have to keep training hard so we can finish the season well.
“We have been on a decent run. We have not lost in the last four but if we pick up a few wins then I think we will finish the season strongly.”
City head to Morecambe on Saturday, of the back of home draws with Carlisle United and Yeovil Town. Does the fact they didn’t pick up victories in their matches at St James Park, but in extra pressure on them to win at the Globe Arena?
“I think we go into every single game aiming to pick up the win,” said Hiram. “It doesn’t make a difference whether it is home or away. We have the same mentality going into the games.”
Hiram picked up the man-of-the-match award in the draw with Yeovil, but admits he’d happily swap that for the three points.
“I am always grateful from the support for the fans and happy to receive the man-of-the-match award, but if we had got the three points that would have been even more important and made me happier,” he said. “The bigger picture is the team doing well, as always, but if you can get personal accolades then it is also a good thing.”
