MARK Bower says he is only focused on Bradford (Park Avenue's) results and performances and expects further twists and turns in their play-off battle.

Avenue hope to build on a 2-1 midweek win over Leamington as they face an away double header in Vanarama National league North when they first travel to third-from-bottom Ashton United tomorrow, followed by a trip to third-placed Spennymoor Town next Tuesday.

Only one point separates fourth to seventh place in the table as the play-off picture looks like going right to the wire. Avenue are in a good position, after they moved up to fifth on 54 points following Tuesday's triumph.

Bower says his side's sole focus is on tomorrow's clash which he sees as a tricky test despite his opponent's lowly league position.

He said: "Ashton are more than capable of causing teams problems. They beat Chorley a couple of weeks ago.

"Tomorrow's game is the priority and the focus for us. They are looking to recover from a couple of defeats and will be looking to pick up some points.

"Pretty much everyone in the league have something to play for, down to seventh place for the play-offs, they still have a chance.

"There are still points to get for us and there are no mid-table gimmes. Every game in this league is tough.

"Every team up there is capable of going on a run and winning three or four games on the bounce. If teams do that, then the positions can all change.

"It is good that we have managed to capitalise on teams not playing in midweek with a good result.

"We look strong for a top-seven finish, I'm not really worried about everyone else.

"Everyone is fully fit for us. We had as strong a bench against Leamington as we've had this season."

Bower added he was really pleased with his side's two performances, last Saturday's home 2-2 draw with Curzon Ashton and Tuesday's victory.

He said: "I was really pleased with both performances on Saturday and Tuesday. We were worthy winners of the game against Leamington. The only criticism I could have is that we could have made it more comfortable for us and should have taken more chances.

"When you've won you always look forward to playing the next game as soon as possible.

"We have got that bit of an edge back after a difficult spell over new year and a time without any games."

Meanwhile, Bower also wished new Bradford City manager Gary Bowyer luck in their League One survival bid.

Bower was among the bookies' favourites to succeed David Hopkin in the Valley Parade hot-seat but the Avenue boss dismissed this link last week.
