Schofield tight-lipped over Robins job

Next Story

John Schofield failed to provide any insight into whether he will get the Cheltenham job on a full-time basis after guiding the club to a 5-1 win over Barnet.

Schofield has been in temporary charge of team affairs since October 20 with Martin Allen on gardening leave as the club`s board carry out an internal investigation.

"I can`t answer questions about whether I might get the job full-time, what I can do is tell you that it is great to score goals and it is even better to win games," he said.

A decision regarding Allen`s future at the Abbey Business Stadium is expected this week.

Ben Marshall scored twice, while Andy Gallinagh and Justin Richards were also on target after Barnet had gone ahead through John O'Flynn, with Ismail Yakubu's own goal rounding off the scoring.

"A lot of things we tried came off and this type of performance can do nothing but keep the belief in the players," added Schofield.
