"I think promotion, definitely," he said after yesterday's man of the match performance in the 4-1 FA Trophy victory over Kidderminster Harriers, when asked what his hopes for the season were.

"We're more together, digging deep and fighting for each other.

"Kiddy are a full time team and we've just proven we're a lot fitter than them.

"Promotion, FA Trophy final - I want everything.

"It (success) is good for the community and fans. We've got a good team and I think we're good enough to win it all."

Wing back Ferguson has come into his own since the side switched to a 3-5-2 formation, something manager Craig Elliott acknowledged yesterday.

"I've played it at Sheffield United so it's nothing new, to be honest. But the league's a lot different so I'm just adapting," Ferguson said.

"(Playing regularly) is good for my fitness. I've struggled with injuries last few seasons, so to make it to Christmas injury free is a real positive for me, I just need to keep calm now."

Ferguson is also enjoying his reunion with on-loan Blades youngster Kyron Gordon.

He added: "We used to play with each other at Sheffield United.

"We know each other, we know each others' movements. So when he came on loan I was excited as I know how good he is.

"We've got a little partnership and we're just doing what we're doing. Kyron's a really good lad and we can help each other."
