ROVERS made it an astonishing four wins in a row to move within a point of the Conference play-off places.

Although it is early days, optimism is rising among fans as few of us thought we would have earned 20 points from our first 11 games.

After a poor start to life at this level the players have adapted well and are now showing the right attitude.

Their performances are full of commitment and desire to win and the supporters are backing them to the hilt, with more than 6,000 at the Mem to watch us beat Woking 2-0 on Saturday.

The anxiety and angst on the terraces have been replaced by fervent support and encouragement, which should make us a tough proposition for any team facing the Gas on our home turf.

We started well on Saturday and the early goal by Cunnington would not have looked out of place at a higher level, as an excellent cross by the lively Martin was met with a brilliant volley by the big striker.

The rest of the game was an entertaining contest in which Woking showed why they have started the season so well, playing some neat, passing football and having a large share of possession.

Our defence kept them at bay, however, as they failed to carve out any clear cut chances and Clarke showed his tactical prowess by changing the formation in the second half to shore up the midfield.

A wonderful free kick by the impressive Mansell in the closing stages of the game sealed the victory, sparking celebrations among the fans and players and beaming smiles galore.

It is a long time since we have regularly enjoyed the matchday experience but the feel good factor is coming back, as we have a team that wants to play for the club and is playing positive, entertaining football.

If the players can maintain that level of application we can hopefully enjoy a successful season.

A fifth consecutive win has to be within reach at Southport on Saturday, followed by a trickier looking trip to big-spending Eastleigh on Tuesday.
