We well deserved the win - Warne

"We deserved the win," he said. "I always want perfection and thought we were a little sloppy at times, but generally our overall play was good, We had ten attempts on target and their goalkeeper kept them in it.

"We had to be patient. Cheltenham are a well-coached team. They’d played only four games at home before today and beaten Oxford, drawn with MK Dons, beaten Ipswich and lost to Wycombe. They are four ridiculously tough games.

"We told the lads not to turn up and think it would be easy. Every team ask you questions. Today our quality came through in the last half an hour."

"We had a couple of good efforts early on and just needed that first goal," Warne said. "I was looking forward to half-time so I could reiterate to the lads not to go away from our game-plan.

"We asked them to get the ball out of the middle quicker, get it wide and go for the one v one. In the end we came away with a clean sheet and a good 2-0 win."

"We wanted to get nine points from the last three games and we've got seven, Ironically, the match we drew (against Crewe Alexandra) was our best performance of the three.

"I am really pleased with the lads. We're on at them all the time. They are desperate to win every time they play. The atmosphere is electric in the dressing room."
