Reaction: Duff on Portsmouth

2 November 2021

Manager Michael Duff felt his Cheltenham Town side were more than good value for their point on the road at Portsmouth.

An entertaining 90 minutes at Fratton Park saw Lewis Freestone's first ever career goal cancelled out by Reeco Hackett's equaliser in a first half that saw both of the matches goals.

Duff was happy to see an improved performance on the road against one of the bigger clubs in the division.

"Portsmouth away you always take a point. We were more than good value for it," he said.

"First half I was disappointed with the goal we gave away but we scored a good goal and had several really good opportunities - we didn't quite take them - which is similar to Saturday when it was 1-1 we missed a one-on-one.

"The last three or four away games we've been disappointing in terms of we've run around and had a go but we haven't shown the courage to get on the ball.

"Today looked a bit more like how we want to play. We moved the ball around with a purpose."
