It’s with a bit of a relief for the players that they get away from the pressures of a home game at Sixfields with this afternoon’s visit to Cheltenham. Even the paltry attendance on Tuesday night were able to voice their discontent and from what I hear it was deserved after a shocking display.
Today, though, we go to Whaddon Road looking to just get three points from any avenue possible. It used to be an unhappy stomping ground over there but we’ve picked up two wins and a draw from our last two visits with Jason Crowe netting the winner last season.
The Robins are in a similar position to us following relegation and both sides’ frustrations could lead to a decent game this afternoon. We can only pray that we finally get a bit of luck in front of goal at the right end this time after a couple of weeks of controversy at the wrong end!
