Russell Milton: Cheltenham Town assistant manager targets record unbeaten run

Cheltenham Town's have won 15 and drawn five of their last 20 league games

Cheltenham Town assistant manager Russell Milton says his team have been "magnificent" as they attempt to set a new club-record unbeaten run.

Gary Johnson's side have equalled their previous record of 20 games, set in the 1994-5 Southern League Premier season.

Town are top of the National League ahead of Saturday's trip to Tranmere, who were the last team to beat the Robins in the league in September.

"If you can break records, it is good," Milton told BBC Radio Gloucestershire.

"The players have been magnificent all season really for getting these 20 games, but the 13 or 14 that were before it as well.

"Fair play to the boys, it's been great."

Milton also revealed that midfielder Harry Pell could miss up to six weeks after suffering an ankle injury in the win over Welling.

"It's about four weeks I think, three to four weeks training, and then another week or two after that before he's back in real contention," he added.

"But that's an estimate, so maybe a little bit earlier, maybe a little bit later."
