With the likes of Peter Thorne and Michael Boulding vying for a striking berth, Hanson knows he needs to keep up his good form in order to stay in the side.
"Basically, I've got to keep up how I've been playing," Hanson told the Telegraph & Argus.
"When you've got players with the quality of those two around you know they can come in at any time and score goals. Hopefully I can keep on top of my game."
Hanson was delighted with his first goal since joining from non-League Guiseley, adding: "I can't describe the feeling even now. Hopefully there will be more of those, I can keep playing well and stay in the side."
