Cheltenham Town striker Luke Varney admits that a performance had been coming after the Robins moved out of the bottom two with a convincing 3-0 Sky Bet League Two win at Notts County.
Varney scored either side of half time, first guiding in a header following a pin-point Ryan Broom cross – before converting straight from a Chris Hussey short corner.
The experienced forward registered his second brace in Robins colours after netting twice on his full debut against Morecambe at the start of October, with Tyrone Barnett adding a late third at Meadow Lane.
“It’s massive on the scale of things,” Varney said of the result, which was Michael Duff’s first league win in charge.
“When you look at the league and what affect it would have had getting a positive result today, getting those three points was massively important.
“We hadn’t really talked about the magnitude of the result if we could win but the performance had been coming.
“The last two or three weeks we’ve worked on a shape and the performance levels have meant we enjoyed watching and playing with a lot of freedom.
“I think we battled really if you look at the first half and we stayed in the game, away from home we had to learn to manage the games more.
“I think we had a bit of possession and started the game properly and turned them a bit more – we got our quality players on the ball and in the second half you could see the difference and we enjoyed having the ball.
“That comes from scoring goals and managing the game properly, we’ve worked on that and it’s starting to feel like the right formation and we are feeling like a tight knit squad with everything working now.”
