Reaction: Duff on Burton Albion

27 August 2021

Michael Duff was pleased that his team were able to earn something from their Friday night trip to Burton Albion.

The Robins collected a point on their travels in Staffordshire in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Callum Wright had given Cheltenham the lead during the first half, but Lucas Akins levelled in the second half for Burton in a 45 minutes the hosts controlled for the most part.

"I think we probably pinched a point. I don't think we were great today," he admitted.

"We looked like a team that's done a lot of travelling. We've been to Fleetwood Friday, Saturday and then been to Gillingham on Tuesday and Friday night away. I think we've hit every bit of traffic going.

"We need to be braver in certain areas of the pitch. We can't just keep tossing the ball away. Keep tossing it away and teams going up a level will open you up. That's what they did."

Duff also commented on the transfer of Ben Tozer to non-league side Wrexham saying:

"Ben made it quite clear he didn't want to play for the football club again.

"Myself and the board definitely didn't want him to go. He made the decision he wanted to go for his own reasons.

"We think we've got good money on him based on his age. He could walk out of his contract in four months for nothing because they're a different country.

"We mustn't forget what he has done for the football club. Footballers have to look after their own family.

"The board have been absolutely top drawer. I think they accepted the fifth bid and there was total support from the board."
