14 September 2019

Having called for his side to turn out a performance away from home, Cheltenham Town boss Michael Duff praised his players for doing just that after their 2-0 victory at Salford City.

Ryan Broom found the back of the net twice to continue his fantastic September to help the Robins earn a first away win of the season.

Sixth in the divison after eight matches, Duff will be relieved to see his side register their first three points on the road since March.

"I was sincere when I said in the week that I wanted a performance," Duff said post-match. "I wanted us to try and pass the ball.

"The first ten minutes were still a bit long and a bit straight. It is going to take time and it's not just going to happen overnight but there's been a lot of work with the psychological side of the game because it is a conundrum how the same players can be asked to do the same things playing the same formation and the disparity between the home and the away results.

"Today was a good solid away performance. They had a bit of pressure. They didn't really hurt us - we defended the box well.

"We always felt it was just one moment of quality - Alex's [Addai] pass for Broomy and a good little finish.

"In the first half I thought we passed the ball quite well - once we worked it out I wouldn't have really cared but ultimately I was looking for a performance today which delivered three points."
