"We are focused on making sure we finish this season strongly enough to gain enough points and stay in the league,” he said.

“However, I don’t see why we can’t have a top half finish with how tight the league table is at the moment.

“Together, with the strong playing squad and management staff, I believe we can finish really strong

“I feel from a personal perspective I am producing stronger, more consistent performances this season in comparison to last season and hopefully that can continue throughout.”

Heart, commitment and desire are three combative traits that are the cornerstone to young Conway's game, but the Bailey you meet off the pitch is world's apart from tenacious midfield dynamo.

“I’d say I’m quite a relaxed, quiet person before the game, but as soon as the whistle blows for kick off something switches and my mentality changes,” he said.

“I’d like to think the Bailey you see on a football pitch is nothing like the Bailey you would see off it.”
