The Robins continued their upturn in form under Michael Duff from November into December, only losing one of their seven games in the final month of 2018 in all competitions.

Starting December with their only loss in the FA Cup at Accrington Stanley, rapid forward Alex Addai netted his second goal for the club in a 3-1 defeat.

The former Merstham man then scored in back to back matches, smashing in from close range against Newport County in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Eventually earning a starting place rather than being used as an impact sub - Addai has excelled in a 3-4-3 of late and picked up two assists in an impressive 3-1 home victory over MK Dons on Boxing Day. 

Left-wing-back Chris Hussey has been an ever-present member of the starting XI over the last two months.

The 29-year-old has impressed in 3-5-2 and 3-4-3, consistently performing well in energetic displays down the left flank.

His inch-perfect cross was a sublime assist for Tyrone Barnett's headed goal against MK Dons. 

Popular French midfielder Nigel Atangana is another man in form, earning a couple of Man of the Match awards for his tenacious presence as the most defensive minded player in the engine room.

That being said, he scored twice in December - firstly with a cool finish just inside the box at Port Vale - before rising high to head home his first Robins goal at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Boxing Day. 

Finally, Atangana's midfield partner Chris Clements has also stood out over the last few weeks. 

The experienced playmaker has pulled the strings well either as an attacking midfielder as part of a 3-5-2 or in a deeper role as part of a 3-4-3.

Clements capped off his recent fine form with a brilliant goal against MK Dons, starting and finishing a neat passing move with a well-placed half volley into the bottom corner.
