We must look to keep momentum going - Boss

2 October 2017

Manager Gary Johnson has urged his Cheltenham Town players to keep the momentum going when they face Forest Green Rovers in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).

The Robins are back at the LCI Rail Stadium to face their local rivals in the trophy on the back of a fine run of form in Sky Bet League Two.

Johnson’s men are unbeaten in four games – after winning away at Chesterfield on Saturday – and although the manager has indicated he will make some changes he wants the winning mentality to continue.

“It won’t be a young team that we pick, if it an important trophy. But there are other players I would like play,” he said.

“It will be a strong side because you want to keep the momentum, but it won’t be the same team that played at Chesterfield and it probably won’t be the same team that plays against Swindon.

“A few players have done fantastically well the last six or seven games and we want to look after them. There are some that have to play because of the criteria.

“It will give some a chance to show they can come into our team and play to the form that the team is at the moment. I am looking forward to the game with those lads.

“I am sure Forest Green Rovers want a win. But I am sure Mark (Cooper) will be the same as me; you owe it to the squad to bring some players in.”
