Defenders are struggling with lack of cover
What do you think has gone wrong in the last two away games?
I think the defence has performed poorly in the last two games, and the team appears to have been 'played around' with too often, with creators for the opposition getting the better of our team.
This means that the defence has been exposed and they haven't coped well.
Not only that, we are not creating enough chances and relying on the set-piece work of Billy Jones too much.

Is it a temporary blip, or has it exposed some major weaknesses?
That is determined by the game on Saturday to make sure that we can put it right and get back to winning ways.
However, the last two games have exposed both our striking and defensive options and whether we can play different players for different games.
I think Yates should use the loan market to get in some back-up options to push the team to play to their best.
How pleased are you overall with the start to the season?
I have been overwhelmed by the start to the season. The start of September looked worrying with some poor results, but a strong October put us back where we belong.
Saying that, although we sit third in the table, we sit a mere four points off 11th position.
If this is our annual blip, it could be costly.
What team and formation would you play against Barnet and why?
I think the 4-5-1 is becoming a little predictable.
We played with it for most of this season and during our winning streak last season before we opted for the lump-up-front option.
I think we should opt for a 4-3-3 with the back four from the previous two fixtures but with Russ Penn sat in front of the defence to eradicate any Barnet possession and with the creativity of Carter and Pack lined up in front of him.
Zebroski put on the right wing and McGlashan on the left, with the possible answer to our goal-scoring troubles Shaun Harrad down the centre to feed off crosses etc.
Doing this we can attack a poor Barnet team sitting bottom of the league.
How do you see the game going?
This should be an easy win for a Cheltenham team on their day, but we have to make sure we are on 'our day'. Yates will want a reaction but Barnet won't come easy. I'm going 2-1 to the Robins.
