Reaction: Duff on Swindon

27 April 2019

Another home win saw manager Michael Duff praise his Robins side in the club's final home fixture of the League Two season.

Three goals, all before half time, played a major role in helping Cheltenham continue their superb home record against Swindon Town.

Luke Woolfenden scored an own goal to open the scoring, and Billy Waters and Kevin Dawson then added to Cheltenham's tally.

The visitors threatened a late comeback. Theo Robinson and Marc Richards both found the net in the last ten minutes, but Duff's team had done enough earlier in the game to make it ten games unbeaten at home to end the campaign.

"It was a good win," Duff said post-match. "They're not a bad team Swindon. I thought they started the game well - in the first ten minutes we couldn't get to grips with [Kyle] Bennett. He's a good player, he's too good for this level to be honest.

"Once we found a couple of passes a bit of a random goal set us on our way - all of a sudden we're 3-0 up without doing a lot. After that I thought we managed the game quite well apart from the last ten minutes obviously.

"A win is a win. To think we went 10 months without winning at home in 2018, to get one defeat, and the one game we did lose the half time team talk was 'it can't be that easy again' against Tranmere. To have that turnaround has been magnificent."
