Flinders eager to produce on home soil

27 March 2018

Goalkeeper Scott Flinders admits the Robins are determined to try and recreate the club’s eye-catching away form back at the LCI Rail Stadium before the end of the season.

Cheltenham are now five games undefeated in Sky Bet League Two and on the road have recently turned on the style to beat play-off hopefuls Swindon Town and Crawley Town. 

They are back on home soil this Friday when Carlisle United arrive in town and Flinders is eager for the Robins to start the Easter period by picking up where they left off against Crawley.

"We really want to give the fans something to cheer about at home,” said Flinders. “It has not been like the away performances and we know the away following would have been happier over recent weeks.

"We will be going into the game full of confidence so hopefully we can carry on from what we produced last week because we have played very well.

"We need to give the home supporters something to shout about and we all want them to go home with big smiles on Good Friday.

"The defensive unit has been pretty settled in recent weeks and I feel we have seen performances improve with that too," added Flinders.

"It was disappointing as a goalkeeper and defensive unit that we let Crawley in for the last 20 minutes or so at the weekend, we made things hard for ourselves late on. But we will learn from that spell.

"My housemate Boyley has done really well. I am so pleased that he has had a run of games and he is a big player in the team, both on and off the pitch.

"He has definitely got a bright future ahead of him and he has just got to keep hitting those standards every week.”
