Steve Elliott believes "something special" is going on at Cheltenham this season, saying their confidence levels are sky-rocketing.
The 33-year-old defender, who has 14 years of Football League experience with Derby, Blackpool, Bristol Rovers and the Robins, has been an integral part of Cheltenham's rise to second place in League Two.
The Gloucestershire side have rubbished some pundits' pre-season predictions of a relegation battle to give themselves a real chance of promotion out of the Football League's basement division, and the 33-year-old said the spirit in the Whaddon Road changing room has played a significant part.
"There's something about this team this year. We feel so confident and that doesn't come around that often," he said. "I went up with a Bristol Rovers team that clicked halfway through a season but this team has been like that right from start. It's something special.
"When it happens and you're involved you know it's happening but when you're not involved you don't know how to get it.
"We're all getting along and encouraging each other and in the last six, seven or eight games no-one has been putting in performances less than an eight out of 10."
