The Robins enjoyed home comforts in the second month of 2019, winning all three of their matches at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium despite losing twice away from home.
Those important home triumphs against teams in and around them in the table were crucial and in-form striker Luke Varney played a key role in two of those victories.
January’s Autovillage Player of the Month continued his goalscoring run of form in February by scoring the only goals in 1-0 home wins over Yeovil Town and Port Vale.
The veteran forward found the top corner with a half-volley against the Glovers at the start of the month, netting for the second time against them this season.
A training ground corner routine then allowed Varney to register another neat finish, this time against Port Vale at the end of the month, which took him into double figures.
Another player who has been nominated for the award again is Chris Hussey, who has starred in each of the last three months of action.
The left-wing-back’s excellent crossing ability and athleticism down the flank has brought about much joy, it may not have been in February, but the well-travelled defender finally curled in a deserved first goal in Cheltenham colours at the start of March.
Before that, it was Hussey’s corner that led to Varney’s winner against the Valiants – he was an ever present again in February and was one of the better performers in the 1-0 defeat at Grimsby Town.
All action midfielder Kevin Dawson has also enjoyed a purple patch since the turn of the year and has stood out since returning from injury.
The Irishman, who started his Cheltenham career as a winger, has thrived in a central midfield role in both attacking and defending since the Robins switched to 3-5-2 under Michael Duff.
Dawson’s tireless running and energetic performances made a big difference in February and the 28-year-old was particularly impressive in the triumph over Port Vale.
Finally, central defender Charlie Raglan is another whose displays have been key to a resurgence at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.
The January loan signing from Oxford United helped the Robins keep clean sheets in all three of their home games in February as they didn’t concede a goal on home turf all month.
Goalkeeper Scott Flinders, the returning Will Boyle and sweeper Ben Tozer have also stood out but the impact Raglan has made since joining the club has been very impressive.
