Two-goal Graham praises spirit at Robins

28 October 2017

Striker Brian Graham praised the fighting spirit within in the dressing room at Cheltenham Town - as the Robins produced a superb fight-back to claim a point in a 3-3 draw at Wycombe Wanderers.

Graham netted a first half strike before pouncing with a dramatic late header in the 89th minute to claim a share of the spoils.

Earlier the home side had taken a 3-1 lead before Carl Winchester started a powerful comeback that was emphatically finished by Graham.

"Going in at half-time 1-0 up we were full of confidence and hoping to get the three points," he said.

"We came out and shot ourselves in the foot to concede two quick goals and then the third.

"But credit to all the boys. We showed great spirit and character to get ourselves back in it and get the second goal.

"It gave us the kick up the backside we needed and we got a good goal to get a point at the end.

"If I could tell you why goals come against us in quick succession I would be Mystic Meg," added Graham.

"If was one of those days when they caught us cold second half and we only have ourselves to blame for being 3-1 down.

"But we have real character in that dressing room. Maybe at the start of the season we might have lost that game.

"Wycombe are going really well, so by the end of the season it might be a very good point."

Graham was also pleased on a personal level to net his fourth of the season for the Robins.

"I am getting fitter," he admitted. "I never really had a proper pre-season, but I am getting better and I'm enjoying my football.

"It's a great ball in from Mo and I have just guided it back and it's come off the post and gone in. As soon as it left my head I knew it was going in."
