Cheltenham Town video: Marlon Pack chasing best goal tally
MARLON Pack says he needs to continue his rich vein of goalscoring form against AFC Wimbledon tomorrow, or risk another barren spell.
The Cheltenham Town midfielder has netted four goals in as many starts since his proposed move to Swindon Town fell through at the end of January.
The pick of them was a well-controlled left-foot volley in Tuesday night's 1-1 draw at Fleetwood Town.

It took his total for the season to six, one short of last year's final tally and Pack is keen to surpass that and register a personal best tally.
"My goals seem to come in spells and my two earlier in the season were in consecutive games so I do tend to score in patches," Pack said.
"If I stop now, I might not score for the rest of the season!
"My aim at the beginning of the season was to beat my achievements from last year and if I can beat the seven I scored I'll be happy."
Pack, who scored against Wimbledon in October's 2-1 victory, puts his run of goals down to form, confidence and luck.
He thrived on a chance to play in a five-man midfield at Fleetwood, with Jason Taylor next to him, Russ Penn and Darren Carter wide and Sam Deering more advanced.
It resulted in Cheltenham's best passing performance for months and while they only managed one goal and one point, Pack is confident the signs are good for the remaining 11 matches.
"I think that was our best performance for a long time and the five in midfield could have gone either way and it was a bold move from the gaffer (Mark Yates)," added Pack.
"We have not been putting enough crosses in and Sam offers something different.
"We looked comfortable with the ball instead of lumping it, although sometimes you have to in League Two.
"I thought we were cool, measured and we passed it out well.
"It was a pleasing performance wise and while I'd rather have three points and an ugly win, the way we played has given us belief now because before that performances hadn't been great.
"If we can maintain those performance levels, I'm pretty sure we'll get the win we need now."
Pack was full of praise for Deering, who shone on his 22nd birthday. "I love the way Sam plays and I think we have the same mentality," Pack said.
"He's always lively and personally I don't think he has been used enough this year, but he showed on Tuesday what he can do."
