WANDERERS may have got their season truly up and running in November but for Ian Evatt, the A-grade performances are still to come.

The Whites have won five on the spin ahead of welcoming Port Vale to the UniBol today and could end the day in the League Two play-off places.

But for Evatt, it’s all about further improvements in the run up to Christmas, conceding that he has got things wrong in the early weeks of the season.

“Just in November, I’ll give myself a B, because we haven’t won every game,” he said.

“We didn’t win the FA Cup game and we drew against Mansfield and there’s still lots to improve on, so as I said, I’m never completely happy because I always want to be better.

“We have to have that mentality and attitude. We’ve made mistakes, I’ve made mistakes and we need to keep on improving and progressing and we are progressing, but we’ve still got a long way to go.”

Evatt maintains the last thing his side can do is rest on their recent upturn in form.

He said: “Like most sports, the time you think you’ve cracked it you end up falling on your backside and we must make sure we don’t get complacent.

“I hate that word, complacency, we have to guard ourselves against it and make sure we are striving to improve day in, day out, that hunger and desire has to be be there, and when it is, you’ll see players make vast improvements, as you will the rest of the team.

“That’s what we all want, I need to improve, I’ve made mistakes this year, of course I have.

“I’m a young manager, this is my third season in management so I am going to make mistakes and I have done this season, but the important part is that I learn from them and then don’t make the same mistake again.”

Recent form might be on the Wanderers’ boss mind when it comes to warning his side about going through the motions at all, Vale having lost their last five games ahead of visiting the UniBol.

“We have to make sure we don’t feel we’re superior. We have to earn that right,” Evatt said.

“Firstly that comes without out the ball, making sure we’re hard to beat, but then with it we need to play with confidence and quality. You do that, you have a chance of winning any game.

“We’re not going to win every one because there are days when it doesn’t go right. But you need to make sure you build on the platform we gave ourselves in November after that horrendous start. We have an opportunity but now is the time to put our foot on the gas, not taking it off.”
