Vice-Captain eager to set the record straight
Cheltenham Town midfielder Kyle Storer feels that the Robins are still on track to win the league despite last weekends slip up.
A frustrated home crowd watched on as the Robins suffered their second defeat of the season, losing 1-0 to Tranmere Rovers.
But despite the hiccup in recent form, the 28-year-old has his sights set firmly on recovery, starting at Saturday’s away trip to Halifax.
Gary Johnson’s side look like firm favourites to pick up the three points, and Storer revealed that preparations are going well.
“Training was very competitive and I think the boys are very switched on this week, we’ve got to put the result against Tranmere behind us and move on.
I thought we were very sloppy in the first half, I don’t think we were pressing high enough as a unit and our final third play let us down.
It’s a big game Saturday because it’s the next game, it’s all about our recovery and if we can get three points this weekend the Tranmere game will be forgotten about.”
The Robins will visit a Halifax side currently stuck in the relegation zone after picking up just one win from seven games at home.
Darren Kelly’s appointment as their new manager will give the fans some hope, but Storer is confident three points will be coming back to Cheltenham.
“It’s going to be difficult, like I’ve said before every game is going to be difficult in this league. We’ve got to go there and if we have ambitions of winning the league then we have to go to places like Halifax and respect them, but pick up the three points as well.
Storer went on to admit that the added luxury of having a weeks break was something the players needed, following a recent pile up of fixtures.
And with a near enough fully fit squad to hand, the central midfielder reassured supporters that top spot in the National League remains the target.
“We’re still on course for one defeat in every eight games and if you only lose six games in the season you win the league, simple as that.
It’s all about the recovery in this league, if we can go on and pick up the next two games I think we’ll be back to the top of the league. “
