The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Jamie Holt

CHEL­TENHAM boss Rus­sell Mil­ton doesn’t want his play­ers fo­cus­ing on the ta­ble, in­sist­ing he will do the wor­ry­ing for them.

Go­ing into Satur­day’s game against Ex­eter, the Robins were in the rel­e­ga­tion zone, al­beit on goal dif­fer­ence.

And Mil­ton says his side should for­get about the math­e­mat­ics and in­stead start en­joy­ing their foot­ball again.

He said:“I’ve told them from day one that it’s my job to do the wor­ry­ing, I would love it if they didn’t look at the league ta­ble at all.

“I want them to look at the form ta­ble as that’s the thing we can sort.We can’t do any­thing about the 30-odd games that hap­pened be­fore I took charge.

“I’ve said to the lads all along that they only have to worry about the next thing they do.

“It’s about fo­cus­ing on your next pass, your next run, your next tackle. If you do that well, then we’ll be okay.

“They were dis­ap­pointed the other day but when you come away from New­port and Portsmouth dis­ap­pointed only with a draw that shows how far we have come in the past few weeks.”
