Abdulai Baggie pictured in celebration is clearly an optimist, the Sierra Leonean sees a half-full glass as opposed to a half-empty one.

The former Stockport County midfielder says he is hopeful Poole Town actually reach the playoffs in their pursuit for a promotion place.

Poole Town presently sit 5th place in the English National South league seven-point gap on the chasing pack with just five games to the end.

Baggie’s side will be away to Chelmsford on Saturday in another cracker and, a win will almost guarantee a playoff berth.

And when questioned about Town’s current league position Baggie was upbeat.

“No pressure on us, I’m hopeful – we are almost certain of making the playoffs, he said. “Our remaining games obviously are massive for everyone at the club.”

“We have to keep our nerves because making the playoffs will be a massive achievement because of the stature of the club.”

“We were tipped to be relegated this season. And that is not the case so far this season and that’s why I think we are focused on doing well,” He told footballsierraleone.net.

Baggie scored a brilliant goal for Poole Town in last Saturday’s 2-1 win over Concord Rangers in the English National South survival encounter.

Baggie netted his second goal of the campaign with a fine volley from a Luke Burbidge cross, a move that was the only real highlight of the opening 45 minutes.
