Moore: We leave with heads held high

24 February 2018

Defender Taylor Moore insisted the Robins could leave Kenilworth Road with 'heads held high' as they battled to a 2-2 draw with league leaders Luton Town.

Cheltenham stunned the high-flying Hatters with a wonder strike from Joe Morrell and second half header from Mo Eisa putting them two goals up - plus Scott Flinders sensationally saved a home penalty.

Luton hit back and then snatched a point with a 94th minute equaliser to deny the Robins all three points.

But for recalled defender Moore - on loan from Bristol City this season - it was still a day of positives.

"We can walk away with our heads held high," said Moore. "We've come away to the league leaders, who have been scoring five, six, seven goals this season against teams, and got a draw. Pride is the word I would use.

"Our shape was good and the way we communicated as a back four was good. We went 1-0 with a fantastic strike by Joe (Morrell) - he definitelty deserves the credit there.

"We were solid and Scotty (Flinders) comes up with a big save from the penalty. It is frustrating to concede two goals, but we leave with our heads held high.

"We will look at it and improve," he added. "It is a set piece in the dying minutes that we have conceded so you look at concentration.

"We haven't been playing the football we know we can play. But if we play like we did today it can be exciting.

"The gaffer has got the shape spot on. We were solid and have worked hard. If we can come here and do it against the league leaders then we can do it again.

"We have to build on that performance and be consistent in the final stages of the season."

Moore was also happy to play his part in the second goal, with his cross to Eisa tucked away.

"I was quite happy with the cross," smiled Moore. "Mo (Eisa) is absolutely on fire at the moment, scoring goals week in and week out, so we need to feed him.

"He needs those balls and people to give him it in the right areas. He is on fire and our main man. If we give him balls like that then it is good for us."
