Robins are finding more consistency - Boss

25 September 2017

Manager Gary Johnson believes his Robins are finding more consistency to their game - but warned they must maintain those standards when they face Mansfield at the LCI Rail Stadium on Tuesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).

Johnson's men claimed an impressive draw at Accrington Stanley at the weekend and could have taken all three points from the Wham Stadium after a bright finish.

They return to home soil tomorrow night (Tuesday) as Mansfield arrive in town - and Johnson knows the size of the challenge his team will face.

He said: "Mansfield have been in-form and have got an experienced team. They are reaping the rewards because there is no substitute for experience.

"We have got to be in the game and hope that something falls for you or that bit of quality comes out.

"We have done a lot of homework already, as I am sure Mansfield have, and we are at home and have got to take advantage of that.

"Everyone gets more points at home, but we have got a tough nut to crack."

"We seem to be more consistent with our play now," he added. "We've been pretty solid at the back for a while and definitely been creating chances.

"We scored one away, took three last home game. I've always said to the boys we've got to score two to not lose the game so that is our aim.

"We had our chances at Accrington and, to be fair, their manager John Coleman acknowledged after the game that we finished strong and, but for the goalkeeper, we could have got a couple more goals."
