Gary Johnson hailed Paddy Madden as "the best striker in the league" after he inspired Yeovil to a 2-1 win over Shrewsbury.
Madden notched his 23rd goal of the npower League One campaign after Stephen McGinn cancelled out strike-partner James Hayter's early penalty to fire the Somerset side into third.
Johnson was full of praise for Madden and could not hide his delight after the Glovers cemented their place in the play-off spots.
He said: "We're in a great position and have consolidated our position in the play-offs. It's given us a nice little buffer, and with four games left, it's credit to the boys to be in such an excellent position. We're still chasing the top two.
"Paddy deserves what he gets because of his work rate. It was a great strike and he is a constant threat. He is very keen to make sure the team in which he plays wins, so he's a fantastic competitor.
"He has been by far the best striker in the league this season, and his goal was an important one to put us back in front.
"People have started expecting us to win now and that is a different pressure, but I can certainly handle it. We're third in the league, so now have to be careful. There's still four games to go, but we're pleased to consolidate our place in the play-offs.
"We saw the game out and ended up with a fantastic result for our club."
