Reaction: Duff on Leicester City

Robins boss Michael Duff was pleased with his Cheltenham Town team's pre-season showing against Premier League side Leicester City.

Second half goals from Jamie Vardy and Marc Albrighton saw top flight Leicester claim victory at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium, but they had trailed to Luke Varney's first half goal as Cheltenham stepped up their pre-season preparations.

Duff felt there were positives to take from the work that has been done on the training ground so far with plenty still to focus on ahead of the new campaign.

"We've worked on shape in the last few weeks and I think you can see the organisation and how difficult we were to break down," Duff said.

"We're disappointed because the two goals we conceded were poor goals. That's something we do need to get out of our game. We've conceded six goals in pre-season and I don't think anyone has scored a good goal yet as regards to saying that's a good bit of play.

"They brought on a new team second half so it was difficult enough playing Leicester when they bring on £40 million players, but when they are bringing them on fresh and our lads that's their first 90 minutes, but the pleasing thing is the things that we've been working on came out."
