Manager Darren Way wants Town to confirm mathematical safety as soon as possible to allow preparation for next season.

A win at Notts County would guarantee the Glovers another season in Sky Bet League Two with three games left to play. 

The Green & Whites have a comfortable buffer between themselves and the bottom two and are not directly involved in the scrap for relegation. 

However, Town's boss is targeting safety so preparation for next season can begin. 

Speaking to iFollow Glovers, he said: "You want to officially get the job done as both a manager and a team so the club can make decisions on contracts, the future, the budget and the football club next year.

"we don't want to be looking over our shoulder. I've always felt comfortable and in control with the remit I've got and I will maintain that stance because I've just asked the players to come in and do their job in order to put on a good performance."

Suffering defeat at the hands of Accrington Stanley in midweek, the Glovers watched on as John Coleman's side celebrated promotion. 

Having watched the jubilant scenes in Lancashire, Way wants more for his side next season. 

"We've been in that situation and I've been there as a player and a coach so I know exactly what it feels like and it's a really good feeling," he said.

"It's created by unity and I think we're making steps towards it. We're bringing the community in - on each Saturday we're getting young children to come to games because ultimately they're the ones who'll carry the legacy of this club.

"Next year, when I look at the Accrington game, that has to be a benchmark for us."
