I expect us to beat Cheltenham because they are a poor team down the bottom. I expect us to beat Crawley because they are a poor team down the bottom.

If we had drawn tonight against a good team, like Exeter, Luton etc, then I'd have said I'm happy with a point. Drawing 1-1 away at Exeter is more of an achievement than winning 1-0 away at Cheltenham. Beating Cheltenham is meeting expectations, drawing away at Exeter is exceeding them.

Beating Cheltenham doesn't mean it's ok to draw with Crawley and lose to Lincoln. A draw against Lincoln would have been acceptable because they're a tough side. A draw against Crawley isn't because they are abysmal.

Every game isn't the same. We play shit teams and we play good teams. I expect us to beat the shit teams, and am happy if we can nick a few points of the bigger/better teams. I'm happy with upper-mid table, but I expect that we get to mid table because we've dropped points against the top teams, not because we dropped points against dross.
