After a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Oldham Athletic in midweek, Green is looking to continue his run of games, having made 29 appearances so far this term and appearing in every game since mid-January.

Speaking to iFollow Iron, the former Southport man said: “I’m feeling good, and a lot fitter than I did. It’s always good to get a run of games. When you’re in and out of the team it’s not going to be at its maximum level. But I’ve had a good run of games and my fitness is up there now.”

Green has been with United for a year now, and he says the move from National League North to League Two was a jump.

He stated: “It’s a massive difference, but I think from any level if you’re going from non-league to League Two or higher, it’s a lot different in the intensity. Obviously your fitness has to be a lot better, as you do a lot more training day-to-day."

Looking ahead to the home match against Southend United on Saturday, Green isn't placing too big an emphasis of the fact his side could move 14 points clear of the Shrimpers, who sit in the two of the division, with 11 games left and believes every game is of equal importance.

He said: “It’s a big game on Saturday, but every match until the end of the season is big for us. We’re taking it one at a time, but we’re ready to go on Saturday and hopefully we can get the win.”

After a run of 10 matches in the space of just 31 days, the team will have 10 days to prepare for the next game following Tuesday’s night clash with Bradford City.

Green admitted: “It’s tough these back-to-back games, each Saturday and Tuesday. You have to recover quick, but training has been light and not too hard. The gaffer is making sure everybody is ready to go.”

The 24-year-old finished: “We need to keep the consistency, and hopefully I can get a few more goals and assists. I should be happy with that.”
