Reaction: Duff on Crawley Town

Michael Duff has called on his players to take more responsibility in attacking situations after seeing his team concede a stoppage time goal to lose at Crawley.

Ollie Palmer struck on 91 minutes to deny Cheltenham a share of the spoils at the People's Pension Stadium in a tight affair.

Duff's side had few chances on the day, with Crawley goalkeeper Glenn Morris relatively left untested, and he was left disappointed by a failure to find the back of the net away from home again.

"First half we weren't good enough, I thought we got better second half," he said post-match. "There are so many details we got wrong - we lost the ball cheaply again, no one has stood on the ball, let the ball come in the box, knock downs - it was a poor, poor goal to give away.

"Second half I thought we moved the ball slightly better but it's disappointing that we've not created enough away from home again.

"It's taking responsibility - being brave. We seem to be brave at home but we don't seem to want to quite make that angle, take the ball in a tight area, and if you're not prepared to do that you need to do the detail of the game better which we didn't."
