Graham Alexander insists there is still room for growth and improvement within his squad, ahead of City's final game before Christmas at Doncaster Rovers tomorrow. 

After five wins in a row in all competitions, including a 2-0 victory at Gillingham last time out, Alexander now wants his players to take their game forward even more. 

As they prepare for a trip to the Eco-Power Stadium, the City boss does not want his players to get complacent.

“I think we can get even better,” he said.

“The performances have been very good and we are delighted with the players producing those results.

“We have not had a lot of time on the training pitch with the schedule as well as the weather.

“But as we have more games together as a group, we can keep improving.

“At the moment, we are by no means the finished article.

“We have made great progress in recent times but the progress has to continue.

“You have to get the balance right, take the positives from games but also not get complacent and keep pushing.”

City have been hampered by a raft of injuries to key players at times throughout the campaign.

But now, with access to a fully-fit squad, Alexander is happy with the competition for places this creates and hopes it will push his players' standards even higher.

“We have a full squad going into this busy period of games,” he added.

“No one is on the treatment table, and that means that we have a lot of competition as everyone wants to show why they should be playing.

“There are decisions to be made with not only the team but also the bench due to the number of players.

“We have four games in something like eight days coming up, so it is very unlikely that we will see the same XI in every game, which gives people opportunities.

“I am still learning about these lads, and want to give them all a chance.

“When it comes to January, we will only make decisions on players when we are 100% certain.”
