Heading into Tuesday's clash at Sunderland, Michael Duff is pleased with the opening his team have made to the League One campaign.
Following Saturday's defeat to top of the table Wigan Athletic, the Robins have picked up 12 points from nine outings in the division, as well as reaching the Carabao Cup third round.
Tuesday's game at the Stadium of Light is another exciting opportunity back in the third tier for the Robins and Duff takes his team to the north east boosted by how they've began the season.
"We've won three, drawn three and lost three and other than this Saturday we've been competitive in every game," he said.
"The start has been a positive start. It's our 14th game of the season and we've had four games at home. We've done a lot of miles and travelling.
"If you had offered anyone this start they would have taken it."
