Reaction: Duff on Gillingham

16 November 2021

A good performance left Michael Duff pleased as he saw his team clinch their spot in the FA Cup second round with a home replay win over Gillingham.

Mattie Pollock's first half goal from a set piece proved enough to separate the two teams ten days after they last met in the competition at Priestfield.

It now means that the Robins will travel to AFC Wimbledon in the second round, and Duff was satisfied with the improvements his charges made from the original tie.

"It was a good performance - you've got to stand up and fight against a Steve Evans team," he said.

"It doesn't matter how many people they've got out they're going to play the same way.

"I thought at their place we did two sides of the game well. Out of possession I thought we were good and in transition I thought we were good - I just thought we could have used the ball a bit better.

"I thought we added that into our game today."
