GOALSCORER Max Kretzschmar said Wanderers have to keep aiming to beat teams - saying draws aren't good enough.

The young midfielder has helped relieve the pressure building around Adams Park by scoring winning goals in two successive games, giving them something of a cushion from the bottom two.

Kretzschmar followed up his penalty winner against league leaders Chesterfield on Saturday by scoring a sensational lob at Exeter City last night as Blues won both games 1-0.

And he said Wanderers have to keep winning as single points for a draw won't be enough to drag them even further away from the danger zone.

He said: "The three points are massive. We don't want to draw, we want to get up the table and get safe as early as possible. We want to keep the train moving in the right direction.

"We fear no one - we've beaten the league leaders and now we've come to a tough place with tough conditions. We can keep going and keep winning. We are confident now and I don't see why we can't win on Saturday."

Reflecting on the win and his goal at Exeter, the 20-year-old said: "1-0 is maybe more satisfying than a 3-0 or 4-0 drubbing because you just grind them down away from home.

"Lately we've been positive from the start. We realised their keeper was quite young and quite small, so we thought, 'Let's have some shots', and luckily mine went in.

"I've hit some nice ones in training but it's very difficult with Matty [Ingram] and Chas [Horlock] in goal as they're both great keepers."

Kretzschmar was a 10/1 shot to open the scoring on Tuesday, but after netting in back-to-back games he hopes his odds on making it a hat trick at Southend on Saturday won't be slashed as a result.

He said: "I hope not - I want people to keep winning money on me. It never works when I bet, but I'm delighted."
