Reaction: Duff on Exeter City

16 November 2019

Michael Duff praised his Cheltenham Town side for picking up a point at Exeter City's St James Park after a difficult journey scuppered much of his team's pre-match preparations.

The Robins had to forgo their pre-match meal after an incident on the M5 motorway delayed the team's journey to Devon.

Nevertheless after a quick trip to a supermarket en route to a team that had lost just once all season at home Duff was pleased with the outcome as his side made it five unbeaten on the road.

"It was a good point and clean sheet," Duff said. "What people won't realise is it's taken us four-and-a-half hours to get down.

"We had to cancel pre-match and go into Asda. The lads are eating pasta pots, couscous, things like that from Asda.

"You throw all that into a team that has one of the best home records in the league it was a good away performance.

"We looked a lot more solid. First half was a bit attritional but you've got to match it and stick with it.

"I thought second half we grew into it and opened up a couple of times and it couldn't quite fall for us. They may say the same thing but I thought there were a couple of really good patters in the second half and Reg [Luke Varney] nearly got in - there was a good block.

"Gav [Reilly] you fancy on his left foot and Conor Thomas running on to one just half a yard so all in all if you throw all of that into the mix it is a good point."

Cheltenham return to action on Tuesday evening with an FA Cup first round replay at Swindon Town's County Ground.

Tickets and away travel are available for the short trip to Wiltshire from the ticket office, which is open on Tuesday at 10am. Tickets will also be available to buy from Swindon on the night of the game.
