Yates' men have won only twice this season and have picked up just nine points, but their manager, who steered the club to the play-off semi-finals last season, is sure the crowd will keep playing their part.

"It's frustrating for me and the boys," Yates told BBC Gloucestershire. "I'd say (to the fans) stick behind the team and stick behind the players.

"They're good supporters, they're not abusive or stuff like that. If we stick together we'll be fine.

"I'm talking about us being braver. Braver with the ball and being brave when it matters.

"I think the supporters saw the effort and all the commitment. Everyone's just got to keep working and raising their game."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
