Atangana determined to keep looking up

17 March 2018

Midfielder Nigel Atangana insisted it was important to keep the undefeated run going as the Robins battled back in difficult conditions to a claim a point against Chesterfield.

Substitute Brian Graham netted in the final ten minutes at the LCI Rail Stadium to ensure the Sky Bet League Two encounter ended all-square.

And Atangana admitted although it was a frustrating afternoon for players and fans alike, it was vital the team did not surrender all the points on offer.

“It is frustrating but we did not lose, which is important, we are now unbeaten in four games and we must look up,” said Atangana, named man-of-the-match.

“The conditions were not easy, with the wind and snow, but it is the same for both teams. It is no excuse.

“We did not play as well as we did at Swindon, but if we did that we would be top of the table. But we dug in and I was pleased for Brian (Graham) to get the goal.

“It is nice to hear the nice words from the fans,” he added. “I am very happy and trying to do my best, and that has happened these last four games.

“I like to play in this formation, I like to play in front of the defence. I think I have found my job and my role for the team and I hope to do the same every week.

“You never know with football, but I hope my injuries are behind me now and today I feel very well and I am very happy.

“I just now want us to win maximum games, keep looking up and finish as high as possible.”
