Reaction: Duff on Ebbsfleet FA Cup win

20 November 2018

Michael Duff praised his Cheltenham Town team's mentality as the Robins booked their place in the Emirates FA Cup second round with a win over Ebbsfleet United at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

Tyrone Barnett and Alex Addai's goals secured the Robins safe passage through to the second round where Sky Bet League One side Accrington Stanley provide the next challenge.

Speaking to the media immediately after the game Duff was pleased to see his charges break down a team who have been tight at the back of late.

"I thought in the first half we moved the ball really well," he said. "We were a little bit slow at times and didn't play forward enough, but I thought we totally dominated the ball and in the second half we had to dig it out.

"They're a big team and they've not conceded for five hours. They get their back four nice and narrow and they've got some big lads - they almost allow you to cross it because they are so big at the back.

"It's always good to win games. We don't think we've arrived and we still are where we are in the league. They are two tough games coming up, there's no mistake about that."
