With their Southern League Premier Division place all but secured, Cirencester Town can now kick-on towards a positive end to the season, according to assistant boss Keith Knight.

The Centurions will attempt to make it four games unbeaten when they welcome Slough Town to the Corinium Stadium after securing a battling point against Frome Town on Saturday.

The point and results elsewhere meant that Cirencester are now 13 points clear of the drop zone and Knight believes it means they can now start to play free from any pressure.

"We have enough in the bag now, not to look over our shoulders at the bottom three and we can take a bit of confidence from that," Knight said.

"It was a good point in the end on Saturday on a tricky, soggy pitch. That makes it three unbeaten after good away wins at Chesham and Tiverton and we want to keep that momentum going."

After taking the lead through former Cheltenham Town man Zack Kotwica, Cirencester were pegged back by a goal from Dan Cleverley.

Mark Pritchett was then sent off for accumulating two yellow cards late in the game and having gone down to 10 men, Cirencester's management were happy with a point.

"It was a pretty turgid first-half before Zack scored and we had a chance not too long after to have made it two, had that gone in we would have won it," Knight said.

"We let them back in it and after Pritch got sent-off late in the game, it was probably a case of a point gained rather than two dropped."

With the club's development side playing at the weekend, Ellis Dunton is finally free from suspension after being sent-off in the festive game against Fairford Town.

He returns to a squad that should be boosted by the return of midfield general Jamie Reid, who has recovered from injury.
