AIRDRIE boss Jimmy Boyle says its full steam ahead for the Second Division promotion play-offs after his side secured their fourth straight win.
A Ryan Donnelly brace sank Stirling Albion on Saturday and moved the Diamonds to 42 points, alongside fourth-placed Stenhousemuir and East Fife in sixth.
The New Broomfield men now travel to Ochilview for a date with the Warriors in what is their biggest game of the season.
Boyle feels his side are still capable of improvement after a dodgy second-half display at Forthbank but will take the three points this weekend no matter how they come.
The game at Stenny will be a good one because of how the league table looks right now, said the Airdrie boss.
Were all on the same points, with only goal difference separating us, so its looking a bit tasty in that section of the league.
Hopefully, we can continue our form against Stenhousemuir but well need to play a little bit better than we did in the second half at Stirling.
I dont think were playing as well when were winning compared to when we were losing, which is very strange to say the least.
The gaffer also praised Rochsoles marksman Donnelly, who ended an eight-match drought to make it 27 goals in 36 games for the campaign.
Ryan had been working hard and had a suspension recently, Boyle added. Nothing had really been falling to him.
But he got his two goals at Stirling and could have got a few more. Im delighted for him because goalscorers work on confidence.
Its good that hell have that back now after a few games without finding the net.
