Reaction: Duff on Oldham Athletic

Michael Duff believed his Cheltenham Town side did enough to deserve all three points following the Robins 1-1 draw at Oldham Athletic.

Ryan Broom's second half goal cancelled out Filipe Morais' early opener for the Latics, but there were other chances that went astray on the afternoon, which also saw two penalty opportunities rejected by the match officials.

Duff was pleased to see his side step up in the second half and to dominate the clash away from home.

"I thought we were the dominant team throughout," he said. "In the end you take what you've got and get away.

"We dominated the game in every department I felt. There were two penalties that weren't given and somehow they managed to book one of our players for one of them - I thought it was a definite foul on Broomy [Ryan Broom].

"Alex [Addai] should probably score but it's still a penalty. I've seen a picture of it already - a definite foul. So we had quite a few things go against us.

"We said to the players at half time believe in what you're doing. Don't start whacking it and panicking. It needs to be a littler bit tidier and a little bit more urgency to our play but the process got them a point but I thought we deserved all three points."

Next up for the Robins is a home game with West Ham United under-21s on Tuesday evening in the Leasing.com Trophy.

Tickets are available to buy online for the match against the young Hammers.
