Striker Mo Eisa acknowledges the Robins must rediscover a more clinical edge in front of goal if they are to mount a serious play-off challenge.
Eisa will hope to lead the line when Cheltenham travel to Barnet in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).
The 22-year-old will be returning to his old stomping ground of the capital for the clash, having been snapped up by Gary Johnson in July from Greenwich Borough.
The Sudanese striker admits he will almost certainly have friends and family in the crowd at The Hive Stadium.
But his focus will totally be on events on the field and looking to add to his ten goals in all competitions and secure a crucial and much needed away win.
“It’s a busy period for us and we need to start getting the wins on the board if we want to push up,” said Eisa. “We are only eight points behind the play-offs so if we get results now we will be there or thereabouts.
“We need to be more clinical. I had a few chances to score against Coventry before I did, I should have scored more than one.
“I take some responsibility for that, of course, and we know we can do better.
“We are creating chances, that is crucial, but we need to get on the end of these crosses and balls in to put ourselves on the front foot.
“I’m excited about what is coming up because it’s my first festive period at this level,” he added. “It is all new and different, but it’s something I will learn from and I want to help us kick on.
“I’m enjoying my football. I feel I am getting better every week and I firmly believe the best from me will come in the second half of the season.”
