After his Man of the Match performance in Saturday’s draw with Woking, Cal Roberts has promised to keep getting better.

In his third game for the club, the winger stood out and was a constant thorn in the side of the Cards defence and played a big part in our equaliser.

And he feels he’s improving game by game.

“I feel like every week I’m making strides and getting used to the pace of the game,” said Roberts.

“Hopefully you can see I’m doing that and the performances will pay off. I’m getting there gradually.

“The manager showed faith in me straight away and I’ve got to repay him.

“There’s more to come. I’m getting settled in and more up to speed every week and it helps when there are 5,000 fans wanting to see you do well.”

The winger was impressed with how we performed against Woking despite the result.

“We were brilliant," said Roberts. “We defended our box superbly but had to take our chances at the other end and that’s what cost us.

“We want to be in the play-offs and get promoted so we have to forget about it and go again next week.

“It’s another point in the right direction.”

Aside from his role in our goal, Roberts was at the centre of some key moments in the match and spoke afterwards about our strong penalty claim and spurning a great chance to open his account for us.

“I got there a second before the defender and chipped it over him,” recalled the winger.

“He brought me down but the referee said I went down too quickly.

“I should have probably been there a second earlier for my chance but it was just one of those things.

“You can’t dwell on it. You just have to brush it off and go again in the next game.”
