Reaction: Duff on Shrewsbury Town

20 November 2021

Cheltenham Town boss Michael Duff praised his team for finding a way to get three points in their 2-1 home victory over Shrewsbury Town.

Behind to an early goal, Shrewsbury ended up having Elliott Bennett sent off for a deliberate handball on the goal line, and from the resultant penalty Conor Thomas equalised.

In the second half Kyle Joseph touched in from close range to ensure that the Robins managed to secure three points against an opponent one man down.

Duff was happy that after a poor opening to the game that his team worked their way into the contest.

"I'm really pleased with the result. You take any win you can get. It's really difficult to win a game," he said.

"We had to find a way. We started really poorly and gave a terrible goal away.

"The sending off changes the dynamic of the game but up to that point we weren't very good anyway.

"But we can't be brilliant every week and we found a way to win the game which is the positive."
