Reaction: Tozer on Walsall

20 October 2019

The positive attitude and response to being pegged back early in the second half of Saturday's win at Walsall left captain Ben Tozer a happy man at the full time whistle.

Not only did the former Newcastle United defender hit the back of the net for the second time this season, but he helped Cheltenham to all three points on the road at the Banks's Stadium after Josh Gordon had levelled from the penalty spot in a difficult opening to the second half.

Luke Varney's goal shortly after the Saddlers had drawn parity was the ideal response, and it was enough to help Michael Duff's men go on to claim victory.

"We showed great resilience and dealt with the advertisity of conceding the goal quite early in the second half," Tozer said.

"It can be tough when the momentum is against you and I felt like it was at the start of the second half when they've had the penalty, a couple of little half chances, and the boys have rolled their shoulders back and we've gone and got the goal. We've dug in and it was brilliant."

Tozer opened the scoring on the afternoon in the first half when he finished from close range after Chris Hussey's corner delivery was spilled in the box.

"When I first started I'd get three a season and that was always kind of my target. Then I went off it a little bit," Tozer added.

"It's always nice to chip in with goals, especially when it means something.

"We've won the game 2-1 and I've scored one of the goals so it's great."
