Willie Gibson insists there can be no let-up from Peterhead in pursuit of title glory.
The Blue Toon host Cowdenbeath at Balmoor tomorrow in the first of their six remaining games as they seek to win League Two and gain promotion.
The Buchan outfit have a five- point lead on second-placed Edinburgh City with Clyde in third a point further back.
It makes a change for Gibson and his team-mates to be leading the pack after the pain they suffered last term.
In last season’s run-in Peterhead were chasing Montrose but fell a point short of the Gable Endies in the race for the title before losing to Stenhousemuir in the play-off final.
With the Blue Toon’s fate in their own hands this time, midfielder Gibson is calling for a strong finish to the campaign to seal promotion.
The 34-year-old said: “The manager has spoken about last season and he mentioned it again before the last game.
“This time last year we were on the back foot chasing Montrose and looking for their results every week.
“It makes a change other teams having to chase us – but make no mistake, just because we’re in this position we won’t take our foot off the gas.
“We know if we win the games we have left the title is ours and that’s what we need to do.”
Peterhead have beaten tomorrow’s opponents Cowdenbeath twice in the last five weeks.
But Gibson said: “We know what to expect from Cowdenbeath and we can’t take anything for granted or get ahead of ourselves.”
