Wycombe Wanderers are looking to stretch their unbeaten run.
Wycombe Wanderers manager John Gorman says their 19-match unbeaten record has become an inspirational force for his players.
The Causeway Stadium outfit are the only side in England's top leagues not to lose this term and are coping well with the loss of star striker Nathan Tyson to Nottingham Forest.
One of the reasons for that has been the goalscoring form of centre back Roger Johnson, who is winning his personal battle with defensive partner Mike Williamson.
"He was lucky," Johnson told Sky Sports News. "He got two in one game to put him ahead of me but there was never a doubt I would come back.
"I'm 6-4 up now.
"I love scoring goals. I have a bit of banter with the boys, being second-top scorer. I was second-top scorer last year so the goals are flying in for me at the minute."
Gorman does not care who gets the goals as long as his side clinch promotion from League Two.
"It [the unbeaten run] nearly became a burden about three or four games ago," he admitted to Sky Sports News. "Now, it's become an inspiration.
"It's not to do with the record. We've been disappointed, we keep saying it. We've had a lot of draws we feel should have been wins.
"I feel we've thrown away a lot of points but it's a hard league.
"Every single team fights for their lives. No game is easy and you can feel recently that Carlisle and Darlington were saying we're going to be the team to beat Wycombe."
Wanderers look to stretch their run to 20 games when they tackle Boston United on Tuesday night.
