Reaction: Duff on Colchester United

23 November 2019

Happy with his team's performance, Michael Duff was still left frustrated though after his side's 1-1 home draw with Colchester United that they didn't take all three points.

Conor Thomas' second half penalty ensured the Robins secured a point against a Colchester side who took a first half lead through Luke Norris.

A result that keeps Cheltenham in the League Two play-off places, Duff praised the style of football his team produced and the way they went about their performance.

"Once they got the early goal they sat in and made it hard to try and play through," he said post-match.

"I don't think we missed a load of chances. The ball couldn't quite fall for us. It fell the wrong side of the post and didn't drop.

"I thought we played some really good football because they're a really good team make no mistake.

"Slightly frustrated more than anything else because when we did get the goal there was a lot of time left as well - we thought we could go on and win it.

"Overall you take the performance all the time. You don't always get what you deserve.

"We played on Tuesday night and we might have rode our luck a little bit a couple of times and today it's gone the other way so that's the way it is. I'll take that performance everyday of the week."

Next for Cheltenham is a trip to Grimsby Town on Tuesday evening. The Travel Club coach for that fixture leaves from the Jonny-Rocks Stadium at 2pm - book a place onboard on Tuesday morning at the ticket office from 10am. 

Tickets from the previously postponed trip to Grimsby remain valid, however if you wish to get a refund for the game if you already have a ticket and won't be travelling you'll need to visit the ticket office on Tuesday morning to arrange this.

The next home fixture at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium is on Saturday 30 November when Port Vale visit in the FA Cup second round.
