Gilmour helps the Robins

Peter Gilmour, the Ross-on-Wye based sports hypnotherapist, has been called in by Robins manager John Ward to help his side in their battle to beat the drop down to League Two.

Ward told the Western Daily Press: "Peter has been coming in on a regular basis and talking to us in small groups and as individuals.

"You can get carried away by the titles, but it is basically just psychology.

"It is something I have done before at other clubs; other sportsmen use it and businesses also.

"I was offered the opportunity to explore it and I'm pleased that I did. I have been impressed with him.

"It has done more than some good because people have bought into it and there is quite a demand for his time."

Since Gilmour's arrival at Cheltenham Town the team has lost just two games in their last 11.

"I can't say it hasn't helped us in our recent form and that it is not working," Ward continued.

"A lot of people in daily life could benefit from this opportunity, but they haven't got access to it.

"People will rubbish it, but all I would say is that you shouldn't criticise something until you have tried it."

It was beleived that Gilmour was called into Edgar Street last season well before the Bulls won the Play-off final at Leicester and gained promotion to League Two.
