29 January 2020

Goal scorer Alfie May was pleased to see Cheltenham Town respond to the disappointment of conceding an early penalty in Tuesday's 1-1 draw at Bradford City.

The Bantams were handed an early lifeline when referee Seb Stockbridge pointed to the spot, however after having over 80% possession in the second half against an opposition who had Jamie Devitt sent off for two yellow cards just before half time, the Robins fought back to earn a point thanks to May's finish inside the box.

"From minute one I thought we dominated the game," May said. "They made five changes and we knew they were going to come at us. They started really quick, they put the ball down and played.

"The referee gave a penalty and we all watched it back in the changing room and it’s actually laughable. It’s not a penalty and when you watch it back it’s very frustrating that it’s actually been given a penalty. He’s just fallen over. The lad hasn’t even appealed for the penalty.

"I don’t know if it was the arena, the crowd on the top of him, but it’s frustrating to see that back. He’s given it, you’ve got to deal with it as a team, but I thought we dominated them from the first minute.

"It feels like a loss but it’s a good point – they are a good team and they’re in the play-offs for a reason. They’ve got good players so we’ve come here and tried to do our job and got a point so it’s positive really."
