Jeff Goulding feels Cheltenham's exceptional away record in League Two is partly down to the size of opponents' pitches.
The Robins, who have claimed 23 points out of a possible 36 on the road, boast a relatively small playing area at Whaddon Road where, the striker suggested, their natural counter-attacking game is a little stifled.
"When we go away from home the pitches are a little bit bigger than they are at Whaddon Road," Goulding said.
"We are a counter-attacking team and the formation we play suits bigger pitches.
"I think we go away from home and we surprise teams. We start games quickly and that takes teams a bit by surprise and that's helped us.
"Obviously our results away from home have been good, but our home form has been good too."
