Blues shoot down the Robins

Andy Munro watches Blues win at Cheltenham Town.

It was another pre-season win for Blues, again against lower-level opposition and it was slightly worrying that they were behind on two occasions before coming out 3-2 winners.

Whilst Blues looked very decent going forward, at the same time they looked a bit vulnerable at the back, Marc Roberts showing his age with a slightly ponderous performance and Emmanuel Longelo still a bit undisciplined when defending, which can nullify the benefits of his undoubted attacking talents.

Midfield looked good and Jordan James continues to blossom with yet another goal, helped this time by a major deflection. It was also good to see the return of the undoubtedly talented Juninho Bacuna, who scored a spectacular third goal that proved to be the winner on half-time.

Up front we looked decent particularly Keshi Andersen, who looks like he will be a real asset although we could do with a younger version of the Juke to balance the clutch of wingers and creative midfielders that we have signed.

Still, hope springs eternal and at this stage there are more reasons to be cheerful than not.
