'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cheltenham Match Reaction

Swansea City threw away yet another lead as Cheltenham completed the double over us with a 2-1 win.

Lee Trundle headered us into an early lead after converting Akinfenwa's cross before Odejayi equalised not long before half time.

Cheltenham boss John Ward was obviously delighted with the result after picking up 6 points this week.

He said: 'I've always believed we can stay up,' he said.

'I've never questioned it. Other people have questioned me saying it and I'm not going to get silly or carried away, but I said to the lads if we can get this result we can start looking ahead of us rather behind us.

'We've pulled out a really good week with a lot of endeavour and tremendous attitude and six points is a fantastic achievement.

'Mentally we were tough and that's important when you go a goal down against a team like Swansea.'


Kenny Jackett was dissapointed with goalkeeper Willy Gueret after his mistake led to their first goal.

'To go 1-0 up away from home puts you in a very good position, but we didn't capitalise,' he said.

'Second half we had most of the play and a lot of the ball, but we couldn't do a lot with that to put us in poll position and win the game.'


Despite Jackett's continuous press talk about us capable of going on a run, we're still yet to show this on the pitch.

No disrespect to Cheltenham but a team competing for promotion should be comfortably beating teams near the foot of the table.

We remain in sixth place but we're 4 points adrift of Yeovil above us and 8 points behind the automatic promotion places.

It's make or break time in February as we face Oldham, Scunthorpe and Yeovil, 3 teams also hoping to gain promotion.

Jackett hasn't a clue how to motivate his players, still not capable of putting a run together, i honestly can't see us beating Rotherham either, they will be fighting for their lives as were Cheltenham, and then come Oldham.

Goalkeeper fails to catch ball - their first goal. Trundle loses control of ball in their half, they go straight down the middle, midfield get in each other's way and defence static - goal No. 2. They won through our gifts

Jackett must go now. We should bring in someone else and give them enough time to try and turn our season around and if they can't then they can at least assess the squad and get a head start on next season. Only problem is Jenkins couldn't find his back pocket with both hands let alone a good manager to turn this rapidly sinking club around. Jackett should have gone in the summer and not been given a new contract. Plenty of top class prem players coming to the end of their careers with a lot more contacts in the game than clot kenny, it worked before remember toshack?

hi naythan i have just one question doesn't the inability to motivate your players make you a bad manager rather than a good one?
