9 November 2019

Michael Duff admitted that his team got away with earning a late draw in their FA Cup first round clash with Swindon Town.

Alex Addai popped up with an equaliser on 92 minutes, just a couple of minutes after Jerry Yates had given dominant Swindon the lead, to force the game into a replay in ten days time.

The two teams will now do battle again but Duff feels that the result and performance serves as a reminder that despite his team's good start to the season everyone at the club should keep their feet firmly on the ground.

"We probably should have got beat today," he said. "Credit to Swindon - another team that has come with a plan."

"That's the worst we've been for a long time but it's been the worst we've been for a long time and we've managed to not get beat. There are positives within it.

"The biggest thing that people have to realise is that we've never said we're the real deal. We are probably punching above our weight at the minute and we want to stay up and around it and come up against good teams in the league like Swindon who will be in the top seven definitely.

"It's things we need to learn and things we need to work on."
