THE team now continue their mini-tour of cathedral cities with a visit to Lincoln where the Cowley brothers have transformed a moribund club and enthused the whole city.

The crowd is noisy and partisan and worth about six points a season to the home team, such is the advice they offer to the ref.

The Lincoln team play a robust game of in your face football which must not fear. Whatever happens Rovers, stick to your passing game. You will need courage but it is your superior ability that will win the game.

It has been more treats than tricks this time of Halloween for Forest Green fans.

Two good performances have earned the team two wins and six points. Both victories were against teams higher in the table and were well deserved. Tranmere and Exeter were convincingly beaten by a Rovers side playing with skill, spirit and showing admirable team spirit. Many will understandably be giving Reece Brown the credit for the two victories as he has provided the magic missing for much of the season. What we must not forget is the efforts of his colleagues, who give him the platform to demonstrate his superb talent. What is so encouraging is we have a team capable of outplaying most of the teams in the league. The game against Tranmere was exciting and enjoyable. James Norwood has lost none of his pace and movement but on Tuesday night he left his shooting boots on Merseyside allowing Rovers to win more easily than the 3-1 scoreline suggests. Playing with increased confidence, Rovers were in total control at Exeter. Defenders earn full-marks for subduing the highly rated Jayden Stockley.

My last word is for our two excellent goalkeepers. Whoever is selected is good enough to keep a clean sheet.
