17 September 2019

Cheltenham Town boss Michael Duff described his team as "magnificent" following a 3-2 home win over Bradford City.

Once again the Robins delivered in front of goal in an entertaining encounter with the Bantams which swung both teams ways throughout the night.

Goals from Gavin Reilly, Jake Doyle-Hayes and Ben Tozer ultimately were enough to seal victory, on a night of high drama at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

"I thought we were magnificent today," Duff said. "I thought it was a really good game. First half I thought we moved the ball really well, in fact most of the game we moved the ball really well.

"We just couldn't get somebody on the half turn quick enough, but I thought we scored some really good goals.

"The character of the team as well - for all our good play we've gone 1-0 down and then we get the lead and concede from a set play. We go again and then see it out.

"He's played eight-and-a-half, nearly nine minutes there at the end and the ball is coming in from everywhere.

"Scott [Flinders] making big saves when we needed it, people coming off the pitch with blood. I keep telling the lads it's not easy to win a game of football. You need everybody buying in.

"I said to the lads can we have eight players turn up and I thought eleven turned up today.

"Difficult to dig individuals out but I thought Jacob Greaves was magnificent today. Someone said to me before the game it'll be a test for him playing against those two - and it is - but I thought he coped admirably."

The Robins boss will now prepare his troops for another game against a team playing their football in League One last season with a trip to Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.

Tickets and away travel for the match at Home Park are available to purchase from the ticket office.
