St Neots Town will go into the final day of the Southern League Premier Division season in possession of a play-off spot.
David Batch’s men make the long trek to Frome this Saturday determined to finish the job after a terrific second half of the campaign.
They have lost just once since Batch’s late-December appointment and are in the driving seat for a top-five spot after sinking Chippenham 3-0 at the Cozy Stadium on Saturday.
Lee Clarke broke through late in the first half before being flattened to earn a penalty that was tucked away by top-scorer Drew Roberts.
Youth product Luis Vieira climbed off the bench to seal victory with his first senior goal after an injury had reduced Chippenham to 10 men for the final 20 minutes.

Batch said: “We go into the last game of the season in a play-off place and I think I would have bitten off the hand of anyone offering me that scenario when I took over.
“If we play to our script then we have a very good chance of winning football matches at this level.

“There is no point wasting energy or effort by worrying about what is going on elsewhere.
“Our sole focus will be on our own performance and picking up the result we need to keep ourselves in the play-off spots.
“If we do that everything else becomes irrelevant. We have to live in our own moment.”
Influential defender Adam Tann should shake off the thigh problem that sidelined him against Chippenham to return, but Brett Longden serves a one-match ban.
