Point at Gills fuels hope of top-three finish

What did you think of Tuesday's 0-0 draw at Gillingham?

We couldn't have asked for more in terms of effort and endeavour and I struggle to think of an away trip home where I've been so pleased with a point.

Once again, we showed a fantastic team effort in defending from the very front with the hard-working Chris Zebroski leading the line and the likes of Russ Penn breaking up play.

The back five once again were faultless and thankfully we got a slice of luck with Danny Kedwell's miss.

What was the atmosphere like in the away end with 108 other travelling Robins fans?

It was a tad bizarre and had a different feel to a normal away game.

Every one of the 109 had emotions running high and it dominated pre-match talk in the pub too.

Many lined up pre-match to fire their thoughts Martin Allen's way but he avoided us entering through the directors' box.

However, at half-time he certainly heard what the Cheltenham fans thought of him and gave a stern look in return as he walked past us to the dressing room.

You could tell everyone of us was desperate not to lose and the relief at full-time was tangible.

Can Cheltenham Town go all the way this season?

I think that result has given a lot of people, including myself, genuine belief that this could be the season we finally make the top three.

Bar a couple of off-days at home we've not been turned over comfortably by anyone and many believe we haven't even hit our peak.

We must remember last season, though. It only takes one poor run of form to turn a successful season into a failed one.

There is plenty to do yet but we've put ourselves in a cracking position.

How do you see tomorrow's game at home to Burton going?

We have to be confident going into this, but also fans and players must avoid complacency. Just because of the run we're on and Tuesday's result we have no divine right to be winning any game.
