Assistant manager Colin Calderwood says he is pleased to be part of a local coaching staff at the club.
Jon Brady, Calderwood himself, Marc Richards, James Alger and Ash Adebayo are all local, and Calderwood says that is important.
“Everyone’s heart is with the club and the community and that local feel is something that probably hasn’t been with the club since the Graham Carr days,” he said.
“When I came back to the club, Jon (Brady) was probably the person I knew the least but I’ve really enjoyed getting to know him and how he works.
“I feel very comfortable here and my job is to try and fill in any void there may be within the coaching staff. I have worked with some good managers and some good coaches and I can only try and pass on my experience.
“We’ve done a lot of good things so far and as we move into the second half of the season its important to stay in the race.
“The league table is very tight at the minute and I think we’ve done quite well so far at absorbing the defeats we’ve had but we’ve still got an awful lot of work to do and our season won’t be defined by the Christmas period.
“Exeter will be another marker and it will be very similar to the Leyton Orient game in terms of what we can achieve.
“You want to take points off the teams around you and enhance that gap to the teams below you as much as possible
“Our home form has been really good recently but in terms of our overall form we are going to need to have a better run than we’ve had already if we want to enhance our challenge.”
