Reaction: Greaves on Cambridge United

15 December 2019

Saturday's 1-1 draw with Cambridge United was a game of two halves for defender Jacob Greaves.

Whereas it was the hosts who dominated the first half and led at the break thanks to a Paul Lewis header, it was Cheltenham who were on top in the second period, earning a point out of the game when Will Boyle headed home.

Greaves was used for the first time from the start as a left wing back in the absence of Chris Hussey who was suffering from illness.

He played 68 minutes there before being replaced by fellow Hull City loanee Max Sheaf.

"I think first half we weren't at the races," Greaves said. "I don't think we got wide enough to create enough chances out wide.

"They played a diamond so that was where the spaces were going to be.

"Alex (Addai) had that chance where he went down - that could have been a penalty.

"We didn't deserve to be 1-0 down because I think the goal could have been prevented but in the second half I think we've had the majority of the ball, all the chances, and pinned them back a lot.

"They've got that first goal and held onto it for as long as they could. Once we got that equaliser it was us looking to get the winner."
