Midfielder Tom Lapslie, who has played a key role in the U’s dramatic revival, following a spell on the sidelines with a foot injury, feels that the U’s are invincible at the moment.

Speaking ahead of today’s home match against third-placed Carlisle, Lapslie said: “Confidence is high, and we are all buzzing.

“We want to continue that feeling as long as we can.

“We were all disappointed with the previous bad run, and especially conceding those late goals at Yeovil (2-1 defeat on November 19), but since then the penny has dropped, and we have turned a corner now.

“In fact, we are going into games thinking that we can’t lose a football match at the moment, although we have to be wary of losing our focus or becoming over-confident.

“This game against Carlisle is a very important game.

“We have a chance to get into the top seven, and it would be nice to be up there in the mix, although the most important time to be up there is going into the last weekend of the season,” added Lapslie.
