Reaction: Flinders on Crawley Town

1 September 2019

Improving the team's game management away from home is key if Cheltenham are to avoid any late disappointments such as Saturday's loss to Crawley Town, according to goalkeeper Scott Flinders.

The experienced gloveman couldn't prevent Ollie Palmer from netting a 91st minute winner for Crawley on Saturday at the People's Pension Stadium, as the towering striker secured three points for his side at the death to frustrate Michael Duff's team.

Close to earning a second consecutive point on the road, and a clean sheet, Flinders was left disappointed the team couldn't complete the job right at the end of the game.

"[It's a] hard one to take but we go again - that's all we can do," he said afterwards when speaking to the media.

"It wasn't a great game. From where I was I'd take a 0-0.

"Both me and Glenn Morris had nothing to do at all. 0-0 game written all over it.

"We had to weather the storm in the first half with the amount of corners so the gaffer had words at half time.

"We came out with a bit more in the second half and I think one flashed across the front, but you have afternoons like that and it was a 0-0 game. There are things that we need to learn and game management away from home."
