The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

JOEY Bar­ton is con­fi­dent Fleet­wood “are not a mil­lion miles away” from push­ing for a top-six spot.

Town were nar­rowly beaten 1-0 by high-fly­ing Peter­bor­ough in mid­week and have now played all of the early-sea­son pace­set­ters.

“I re­ally do be­lieve we can chal­lenge at the top,” Bar­ton said. “We are not a mil­lion miles away and we need to be clever about how we go about it.

“We have played ev­ery­body in the top six and I know we feel that we can gate­crash that group.

“Yes, we need to be a bit cuter in our play at times, but also there isn’t a mas­sive gulf be­tween the sides.”
