Now we must produce on the road - Boss

21 September 2017

Manager Gary Johnson has called on his Cheltenham Town players to prove they can replicate the win over Colchester on the road.

The Robins head to high-flying Accrington Stanley on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm) boosted by a 3-1 victory on home soil over the U's last time out.

Cheltenham have performed well in recent away games against Yeovil Town and Newport County with little reward.

And now Johnson wants that record to change against a talented and dangerous Accrington side.

"Accrington are a good football team," said Johnson. "John Coleman has put a decent group of lads together that can pass the ball very well.

"They have Billy Kee going well, two dangerous lads up front and two good wingers; two of the best in the league.

"We've got to be aware that they are up there (in the league) for a reason.

"We have now got to prove we can put in an away performance," he added.

"We've got to go there and put in the sort of performance that we did against Yeovil and Newport - but get on the end of one (chance)."
