Lou Macari is refusing to get carried away with being in top spot, insisting he would settle for a mid-table place at this stage of the season.Boss refusing to get carried away

The 2-1 win over Wycombe was their third on the trot, and the bookies have further shortened their odds on winning the title to 11/2, although Reading remain the favourites.

The frustrating thing for Town fans is that unlike Alan Pardew at Reading, Macari is not in the position to make a season-long push, although the current players are certainly doing their best to lighten the gloom at The McAlpine, given the long drawn out takeover saga, departure of Chris Lucketti and possibly further sales of players.

For the time being, though, Macari will enjoy the moment, but he is far too much of a realist to think promotion is going to be straightforward.

He said: "I'd have been happy at this stage to be mid-table.

"I don't think we're suddenly the team that everyone's looking to beat. We've had a few breaks in games when the ball has bounced for us. I'm delighted that we're up at the top but I didn't think we would be." Next up for Town is a trip to one of Macari's former clubs, Stoke City, this Saturday.
