Town captain Dion Conroy has praised the travelling support of the away fans ahead of this Saturday’s trip to Cheltenham Town.

The Robins have the unwanted record of having never won at Whaddon Road, however are once again backed by a 1,500 plus sold out away end this weekend.

Conroy said: “It’s massive, it’s absolutely massive. The fans are amazing when we play at home but especially when we play away.

“They’re always louder than the opposition home team so they’re always like an extra man to us. Hopefully there will be a lot there tomorrow and it’s down to us to hopefully bring the three points back.

“I think maybe it helps playing good football, exciting football and good football to watch. I think everyone in the stadium saw the handball on Tuesday but they stuck behind us.”

Cheltenham have made a good start to their campaign having won two, drawn one and lost one of their opening four fixtures, Conroy added:

“It’ll be a big thing to win at Cheltenham, but the main thing is about getting the three points really, of course it’ll be a massive bonus if we win.

“If we play well like we know we can, I’m sure we will get the win on Saturday.”
