Michael Duff revealed that the players were slightly disappointed in the dressing rooms after an entertaining 1-1 home draw with high flying Crewe Alexandra.
The Robins boss highlighted the high standards of the group that they were frustrated they only picked up a point against David Artell's side.
It is a result that makes it 16 unbeaten at home though for Cheltenham, who put on a good show against a Crewe outfit who remain second, with the Robins third.
"When the red card happened we really did step on then," Duff said post-match. "The 'keeper was their best player in the end - he's made some great saves.
"We didn't quite take that chance. We opened them up three or four times, even with the corner Jake [Doyle-Hayes] has sort of scuffed the shot.
"He's made a couple of saves where you think he's going to spill it and he's managed to keep hold of it because we had people following it in.
"A tinge of disappointment but we can't be too disappointed of where we've come from and where we are at the minute.
"I've walked into the dressing room at the end of the game and the players are slightly disappointed. I don't think that's a bad thing.
"I think you use that and you harness that and take it on if we can."
