Yeovil Town boss Gary Johnson targets beating high-flying teams
Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson has set his sights on gunning down teams immediately above them in npower League One to maintain their push for the play-offs.
The Glovers visit promotion chasing Swindon Town and Crawley Town on Saturday and Tuesday respectively, entering the weekend four points off the top six.
Johnson said now was the time to improve on their record of five wins from their last seven league outings and climb further.
"It doesn't seem to matter to us whether we are home or away and the results are showing that," he said. "What it is showing is that if we do get our game going we are dangerous, just like anyone else.

"We are going to look forward to going to Swindon and seeing where we are because we need to be beating the teams that are just above us. It is that group of teams that we have got to start infiltrating.
"If you look at our losses and wins, the teams that have beaten us are quite similar and we are also beating teams that are quite similar as well."
The boss added Yeovil's clash with Carlisle United on November 24 to a three-game equation he hopes produces at least five points.
Johnson said: "On Monday we reviewed the Hartlepool game (1-0 win) and by Tuesday we were planning for Swindon and we have had all week to do that.
"We know what we are going to, they are a very good side and are big and strong. But we are on the back of a good run with 15 points from seven games.
"I always consider the games in blocks of ten. We were disappointed to pick up just ten points from our first ten after starting so well but now we have picked up 15 points from the next seven.
"We have got three games to go to double the points to games, which is what we keep aiming for from each ten.
"We are second in the form table so even though we were disappointed with the way that we played and that we didn't score three or four against Hartlepool, we were still solid enough to be, over the last month or so, second in the form table."
