KEITH Lowe believes he is playing some of the best football of his career for Cheltenham Town.

Not only has he performed well at centre-half and right-back this season, he has also chipped in with five goals.

The 27-year-old has started the last four games and he said he was brimming with confidence ahead of tonight's home match against Bristol Rovers.

"I think I have played some of my best football recently," Lowe said.

"I always put on the shirt and love playing for this club and I think it shows.

"I never give up anything and I want Cheltenham Town to do well."

Robins fans have responded to Lowe's form by giving him his own song from the terraces, something he said was new to him.

"It's brilliant to have a chant from the fans of your name and I've not had that at previous clubs," Lowe said.

"I think the way I've been playing comes from confidence and you can feel you are playing well, so long may it continue."

Lowe has often been overlooked by boss Mark Yates in past two seasons, since winning the player of the year award in 2010/11.

But the unflappable former Wolves man does not let anything affect the way he goes about his business.

"Football is down to opinions and all I can do is try my best," he said.

"It may not always go my way, but I can guarantee I will always put 100 per cent and my heart into it.

"At the moment I am doing what I have tried to do since signing here, make it impossible for the manager to leave me out."

Lowe nodded in the opener in Saturday's 2-1 win over Torquay United, making this already the most prolific season of his career so far.

Despite his threat in the opposition box he has no plans to ask Yates to play him up front.

"It's not a bad habit to have, being in right place at the right time and helping us get results," Lowe said.

"My goals to games ratio is pretty good this season, but from as long ago as I can remember because I was tall as a youngster, I was automatically put at the back.

"I sometimes join in with some of the extra finishing work the front lads do in training and going forward and trying to score goals is a bit of fun, but I am defender first and foremost.

"The quality of the set pieces has definitely helped me too."
