Very attritional game, mostly played out in midfield by both sides, with Cheltenham matching us shape wise and both sides cancelling each other out. Not the best game of football you will ever see, and to be fair, a draw would have been about right, but it's Cheltenham, so who cares about fair?

Neither keeper were unduly troubled but what sniffs of chances there were came our way. Thomas put a good Ring cross wide early on, and Dennis got on the end of a flick on, but got his contact all wrong. The Thomas penalty looked like the correct decision from where i was sat, and he buries it in the corner, with the keeper almost getting a full hand to it. Doesn't look like a natural pen taker to me. Missed one and scored two streaky ones so far, but if they go in, they count and that's another three very welcome points, and the play offs draw closer.

MOM was given to Hess, and i wouldn't argue with that but i would have awarded to the defence collectively. Macca had hardly anything to do all game.

Onward and upward.

I thought we were a bit excrement today. Luckily, they were shitter. They had the better of it in midfield for much of the game but didn't create anything despite the space. Embleton way off his game and the forwards didn't get much joy either. Luckily, the defence bailed them out. What's wrong with Clifton at the moment? Came off the bench but looked right out of sorts. Is he struggling with an injury still?

Great win today when not at our best.

Pleasantly surprised we got a crowd of just short of 5,000 today.

The sort of game we’d have managed to find a way to lose last season. Not a lot to say about it really other than I thought the penalty looked soft. There was a shout in the second half that looked more clear cut to me so that probably balanced out. Starting to look closely at the play-off contenders fixtures now and I can’t wait for the League Cup first round draw.

Both played 3,5,2. and cancelled each other out glad we finally got that monkey off our back with a ugly win.

Must say never seen M.J. as animated as that at the final whistle he really wanted that one.

The officials seemed to miss a few things not sure what happened near the findus stand but the player looked fortunate to only get a yellow by the reaction of the crowd.

It looks like we might be getting a reputation as a side who like to get the ball down and play and as a consequence I think we'll see a lot of teams coming here to try to disrupt that. Cheltenham did it well enough today with some falling over and niggly tackling. I'd have liked to have been closer to the incident where their lad was booked for the confrontation with Hess(?) because it looked like a deliberate kick on someone laid on the floor to me in the Pontoon.
Not a lot of goalmouth action at either end really. Defensively we were superb. Ohman is a giant at this level and reminds me so much of Mark Lever when he first made the team. I cannot recall him having lost a header since he's been here.
Hessenthaler has been brilliant for us since Christmas and was everywhere today. Must be a candidate for POTY.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Their No 24 kicked/stamped Cook in the back. Could easily have been sent off, and after consulting with the lino, the ref gave a yellow for some reason.

I thought Ludvic also put in a commanding display today and Ring did not disgrace himself either.

Absolutely loved beating such a shithouse of a club. Not under Gary Johnson anymore and they don't have Pell but clearly the club culture of cheating lives on.

Raglan deserves banning for that kick and Waters has the biggest case of little man syndrome I've ever seen.

The fact that it probably should have been a draw makes me all the more smugger to come away with 3 points, more than had we won 4-0.

To the conference with them please.
