Paul Buckle after Cheltenham Town 1 Morecambe 1

16 January 2015

Cheltenham Town manager Paul Buckle interviewed after the 1-1 home draw with Morecambe:

I went from thinking we were going to win it two or three at the start of the second half we had some unbelievable chances to then thinking we were going to throw it away.
It definitely was a strange game in terms of chances, we have to be pleased with the point in the end. I think there was a really big moment at the start of the second half when we had two or three really good chances and if we get that it’s a game changer because we’ve not been two goals up in a game it’s been a nervy season it was one nil and we were hanging on and we really need to put the game to bed at that point. If we had got two we’d have gone on to get three but it wasn’t to be and in the end it was depending on Trev’s penalty save it was a strange game.
If you don’t put your chances away in a good spell then it’ll come back to bite you. It certainly did that tonight. We had control of the game and really good chances. I thought Jack Dunn had really good chances, he created chances as many as I’ve seen in a game. In the end when you don’t put them away, a team like Morecambe who have been together for a long time is going to come back and have a go at you and they did that. We’ve got to pleased with a point as we’ve nipped up a couple of places and that’s how it’s going to be, it’s not going to be easy, we won’t be going straight to easy wins, it’s going to be really tough and we’re going to have to dig in.
We had to pay respect to the game, where the game had gone. Morecambe were playing with someone in the space who was causing us problems. If you don’t take your chances like we had you’re going to come under pressure and we did come under pressure and we found it difficult with the wing backs we found it hard to press on with Vaughan on the right and Craig on the left, Craig gets a tight hamstring so we’re dependent on Jimmy coming on who’s had not much football and it was a real team effort to keep it at 1-1.
