The good feeling is back at the yellow and black side of Gloucestershire with four points from our last six and a superb finish last weekend at Tamworth, writes club commentator, Ollie Williams.\r\n\r\nLast weekend was my first away trip with City, and it’s fair to say it was an absolute treat.\r\n\r\nTamworth was a nice trip but one I wasn’t too sure about the Tigers taking anything from but a match day programme and some camaraderie from the Lamb Ground, oh how wrong I was.\r\n\r\nThe trip down with some great fans I had the pleasure to put names to faces was great in itself, but the game was something else.\r\n\r\nThe first half was a solid display, but just a case of not being able to finish in the final third, and to concede two before half time, you’d be forgiven for thinking the game was gone.\r\n\r\nThen again, when Jonté Smith finished a confident penalty, before Josh Cook equalised on 92 minutes – cue euphoria behind the goal and a lost voice in the commentary box – it essentially felt like a massive win.\r\n\r\nSpeaking to Tim Harris afterwards, it was a sense of delight mixed with relief, going into this weekend’s essential game with strugglers Lowestoft Town.\r\n\r\nBut before that, there’s a sad note. My first away day was also my first time down at Meadow Park, as I’m Cheltenham based. To see the horrific scenes eight years on from the flood, I couldn’t believe my eyes, and I now am beginning to fully understand how badly this club needs to go home.\r\n\r\nBack to the on-pitch goings on, last weekend’s hero Josh Cooke has extended his deal here by a month. Since speaking to Harris two weeks ago, he told me that he’d had words about his initial performances, and then went on to score the only goal in a 1-0 win over Corby in the wake of it, a job well done by both parties.\r\n\r\nWith three great strikers at the club in Smith, Cooke and Anoruo, the goals will flow, and perhaps after last weekend it will. After all is was just the second time this season we’ve scored more than once in a game.\r\n\r\nFor me, tomorrow could be a big game if we do struggle at the end of the year, however there’s now a new breath of confidence that the club can finish in a strong position come April.\r\n\r\nLet’s hope that’s the case, and the Tigers continue their resurgence in form tomorrow at Whaddon Road. I hope to see you there, otherwise remember to listen live on Severn Sport.\r\n\r\[email protected]
