Just looking at the table, we have won the same amount of games as Exeter and Forest Green one less than Mansfield and three less than the Gimps.

With the difference in budget to those teams and the excrement show of last season we have improved greatly. If only we had our defensive consistency that we have now from the beginning of this season.

We've only drawn 4 all season.  If we'd turned a few of our defeats into draws we'd be on the tail of the play-offs.  Fine margins.

To add to that point, it’s been 14 league games since our last draw. Does anyone know what our current record is?

Yep - 9 wins and 5 defeats in the last 14. 6 wins and 8 draws would have earned less points but seen us unbeaten.

  We had 5 points after 10 league games. We now have 46 points from 33 games. So that's 41 points from the last 23 games. Extend that form over a full season and that's 82 points. If that, coupled with having many of our most important players already tied down for next season, doesn't suggest potentially good times ahead, I don't know what would.
  Of course it's never that simple, and there are lots of variables, but Michael Jolley and his team both on and off the pitch are definitely moving in the right direction.

I meant what is the longest drawless run we’ve ever had!

yes indeed perspective....Hurst would have taken draws out of a few of our losses this season and probably some of the wins too...having not drawn many to me isnt a bad thing, especially with the 3 point system....lose a couple of games chasing a win and win the third one you end up on the same points if you'd have stuck for the draws.......but at least you would have given the fans some entertainment and indication that you want to win games.
Hated that approach from Hurst....the 70 min like for like sub...the sitting back after going 1-0 up whilst totally dominating a team...attacker off defensive midfielder on.
Jolley is certainly more adept at substitutions IMO.
