And McCann is showing no signs of reining in their confidence as he told his players he wanted to be leading the standings following the games with Accrington Stanley and Fleetwood Town.

“The last thing I said to the group when I finished after the end of the game was that by the end of the week I want to be first,” McCann said.

“That is our aim, I want to be number one by the end of this week.

“We’ve started well, we’ve got three points and now we need to take Accrington very seriously.

“We know how dangerous they are on their home turf.

“We set little goals and targets and by the end of this week I want to be number one.”
