Reaction: Duff on Swindon Town

24 August 2019

Cheltenham Town manager Michael Duff praised the character of his side as they came back twice from a goal down to earn a point against Swindon Town.

The Robins kept up their unbeaten home record, which exists since January, to hold Swindon to a 2-2 draw on a sunny afternoon at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

Eoin Doyle twice scored for the visitors, but twice Cheltenham pegged them back as Chris Hussey and then Luke Varney registered in front of goal, and Duff thought his team performed well against one of the best teams in the division.

"I think Swindon are one of the best teams in the league," he said. "So I think to go 1-0 down and 2-1 down and show the character that we have to come back and I thought in the second half we shaded it. A draw was probably a fair result. I'm not sure I'd want too many more of those sort of games.

"It was great for the supporters to watch a good game of football- two teams open and trying to play good football - as a manager you don't want too many of them.

"I thought we were going to nick it at the end as well which would have been the cherry on the top, but two good performances at home, hopefully the supporters recognise that.

"I thought they were great and Swindon brought a lot but they didn't drown our lads out so I thought it was brilliant."
