There's no opportunity to sit back and relax in the eyes of Cheltenham defender Sean Long as he gets set to be part of a squad that lines up against Oldham Athletic on Good Friday at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

A draw at promotion winners Lincoln City last weekend means the Robins are 16th in League Two going into the first of this Easter weekend's fixtures.

Long made his first start for the club after a lengthy and frustrating problem with injuries in that draw against his former side and is determined to try and be involved again on Friday when in-form Oldham are the visitors.

"It was a tough game last time, I watched that," Long said. "We've been working on stuff to get on the right side of the result. It's going to be a tough game.

"We always set goals and always want to win games. We want to pick up as many more points as we can and maybe crawl up a few more places in the table.

"No one is taking their foot off the pedal so everyone is looking forward to the next game. There's places up for grabs, we're looking forward to it, we want to keep winning games."
