After a really positive week we travelled up yesterday to allow us to prepare for this afternoon’s game at Sheffield Wednesday.

We had a good win on Tuesday night, we’ve trained really well and I think we go to Hillsborough today in really good shape.

Our fans never cease to amaze me and I’m sure they’ll be there in huge numbers, even in the middle of a fuel supply problem.

Nothing seems to stop the Yellow Army.

I checked and it’s 30 years since we played a league game there – if you want omens, then Brian Horton’s team won that day.

The ground has changed a bit since 1991, but the core thing is still there: really passionate fans who will create a fantastic atmosphere, especially with the away end in full voice.

It should be a great game between two good teams and we’ll certainly be full of confidence after the 5-1 win against Accrington on Tuesday.

It’s funny, but we played just as well against Gillingham and were so frustrated only to get a draw.

We had 25 shots at goal that day, but nothing quite went our way.

Then on Tuesday, Nathan Holland ran at a defender, the ball bounced off his knee and Nathan was clinical to give us the lead.

Right at the end Cameron Brannagan did well, the keeper saved and it flew off a defender’s shin for another goal.

Some days the ball seems to run for you, some days it doesn’t.

On Tuesday we got the breaks, on Saturday we didn’t.

I’m hoping that the same thing applies away from home too, because I’m well aware that people are starting to talk about our results on the road.

I can honestly say that our performances have been pretty good – certainly at Cambridge and Bolton we played well.

At Wimbledon it was set-pieces and at Cheltenham we did well for an hour then fell away.

It’s just a case of staying brave, doing the right things and believing in ourselves.

We can’t be too far off – eighth in League One, a win away from the top six and playing at Sheffield Wednesday.

What better chance to show we can match a club of that stature and win away from home, no matter the size of the ground.

Luke McNally: Win today and we could have a really big season

I had the privilege of meeting the Oxford United Down’s Syndrome team on Wednesday and loved every minute of it.

The team has only been going for a few months, but is being run by some amazing people with the love and support of the parents and families of players of all age groups.

Myself and Lauren Haynes, our women’s captain, were invited along and within seconds we were laughing and joking with the players and involved in shooting practice and then a game.

I got kicked a couple of times but I’m pretty sure that was Lauren – if you’ve seen her play then you’ll share my suspicion!

At the end, all of the players came and thanked us but honestly, we should be the ones thanking them because it was a brilliant session, lots of fun, and it once again reminded me of the sheer joy that football can bring.
