Reaction: Waters on Bury

6 March 2019

After scoring the goal that earned the Robins a point against Bury on Tuesday evening, Billy Waters was relieved to finally find the net for the first time since his return to the club, but also praised his team for the way they adapted against their promotion chasing visitors.

Under the cosh early on, Cheltenham had to battle back to earn a point against Bury in difficult conditions at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

Scott Wharton had made the most of the visitors early dominance by putting them in front, however Waters close range finish levelled the score line as Michael Duff's charges continued their fine form at home - going five unbeaten.

"It is good to finally get the goal - it's a long time coming," Waters said after the game.

"We were causing them a lot of problems from the long throws and set pieces. Bigger lads kept it alive well and Rags (Charlie Raglan) has done really well to get it under control and it fell to me. I took a swing at it and it's gone in.

"We knew that they were going to have a lot of passages of play. We've been working on how to press them. In the first 20 minutes we were looking to press them but they were playing through us well at times, and then after that we did well in our shape and managed to know when to sit off them and when to press. I thought the whole team, the whole shape, was really good today."

The forward will be aiming to make his mark again on Saturday when the Robins are in home action against Notts County. Kick-off is at 3pm and tickets can be bought in advance here, from the ticket office between 10am and 3pm on Thursday and Friday, and at the turnstiles on the day.
