Goalkeeper Paul Rachubka has said he was always confident in his own ability and knew his time would come despite losing the shirt to on loan Mark Oxley earlier in the campaign.

Speaking to the Official Site ahead of the Bradford match, the keeper was also hugely confident that Oldham could keep their current run going and not only remain unbeaten but get a very positive result this weekend to help us end the season with something to smile about.

‘I always believe in my ability and it’s all about being patient to be ready to take that chance. It can be a long wait but I’m enjoying being back in the team.’

The 32 year old has certainly been in good form since he regained the starting spot, and having regained it, it did seem to figure in Oxley’s recall to his parent club and he’s certainly hoping he doesn’t have to look back now, and he has helped us to be unbeaten in the last four and that’s a record he’d dearly love to build on now to help make up for some lost time.

With that said, he’s as humble as ever.

‘I’d like to say I’ve had a big part in that but it’s a time for everybody to take responsibility and build from this. The lads are starting to enjoy it now which comes from getting wins and good performances. There is no reason why we can’t go on a good run until the end of the season.’

With a run until the end of the season the main thing we need to do to ensure we stay ahead of those below us, Rachubka adds that he feels it’s the sole focus and driver for everybody within the team now and that’s where his confidence in us being able to do just that comes from.

‘I imagine it’s frustrating for the fans because it’s taken us a long time to put a consistent run together. We know what we need to do and that is to perform until the final minute.’

Again, that is what he’ll be hoping we can achieve when we face Bradford as he repeats we will be going into the game looking to build on what we have done recently and preferably come out with all three points as well.

Of course, ending the season strongly will give everyone a boost going into next season and whilst it’s sounds cliched, you see it time and time again that a team struggling one year, who end up finishing well even if they don’t push far up the table, generally do have a better year after that because the kinks have been worked out, and that’s exactly what we have to hope for.
