Reaction: Duff on Oldham

19 April 2019

A point at home to Oldham Athletic left Robins boss Michael Duff frustrated in what he described as a "really tight game" on Good Friday at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

Very little separated Cheltenham and the Latics in the club's penultimate home game of the League Two season.

Nevertheless, it's now nine unbeaten at home for Duff's men, and extend his team's mini unbeaten run of five matches in the division overall.

"We could never really get going to be honest," Duff said post-match. "We were a bit slow and a bit backwards and sideways. They literally hit a diagonal but then it's to open them up and we never played through them.

"We asked for a clean sheet, we got the clean sheet, so frustration more than anything."

A first half goal was disallowed for the Robins, which Duff assessed saying:

"I've not seen it. I think he took off early and his momentum took him into the lad. The referee has told me he's pushed him - I didn't see his arms coming out.

"I think there were a few things that went against us today. It was a really tight game. They are not bad, Oldham. That's why they've got one defeat in eight. They've had some good cup runs as well and they've got some good players. 

"If you break it down we had the best chance in the game and a good goal disallowed - there wasn't much in it."
