GARRY FLEMING says Alloa will go into Saturday’s clash with Albion Rovers in a buoyant mood after picking up their third win in a row last weekend.

Fleming’s side have gone on a winning run in recent weeks and have risen to third in the League One table.

And the versatile summer signing believes the confidence coursing through the side is clear to see.

Fleming told Advertiser Sport: “Albion Rovers score a lot of goals but we are on a great run. We’ll go there full of confidence, so hopefully we can replicate the performances from the last three weeks and keep the momentum going.

“The playoffs are what we were aiming for at the start of the season. There are a lot of good teams in this league but the fact we have gone from sixth to third with one win shows how quickly it can change.

"Momentum is so important so we will make sure we are properly prepared to keep that going.

“Winning games breeds confidence and just now the changing room is buzzing. Before I signed I spoke to Andy Graham and he told me what a great bunch of lads there was here.”

Fleming played a key role as Alloa saw off Airdrieonians last Saturday, and admitted it had been a much tougher task than their previous two victories over East Fife and Queen’s Park.

He said: “That’s our third win in a row and it’s all about building momentum now. After winning 4-1 and 4-0 it was much more difficult on Saturday.

"It wasn’t the prettiest of games but that’s where you have to grind results out. The first goal is crucial in every game and fortunately it went our way.”

Despite normally playing as a striker, Fleming has earned rave reviews for his performances as a holding midfielder, where he has played for the last few weeks with his side experiencing an injury crisis, and he revealed he is happy to play anywhere.

He added: “I’m happy playing in midfield. I played there a couple of times at Dumbarton and the gaffer asked me if I could do a job in there because we were struggling with a few injuries.

"I’m happy to play anywhere as long as I’m getting a game. I feel like me and Stevie Hetherington have a great understanding in there now. We’ve settled in there really well.”
