Reaction: Duff on Gillingham

15 April 2022

Cheltenham Town chief Michael Duff was pleased that his team earned something from a game against a Gillingham team who have shown excellent spirit to drag themselves into a stronger fight to avoid the drop.

The Easter weekend began with a fifth meeting with the Gills this season, who twice led at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium, but who were also twice pegged back as goals from Callum Wright and Kion Etete earned a point.

The Kent side are an improved team on the one the Robins faced regularly in the first half of the season and to get something from the afternoon pleased Duff.

"They made it tough, they made it hard, they are organised. They put it in from everywhere," he said.

"In Vadaine Oliver they've got a constant threat in the air.

"In the first half of the first half I thought we were poor. We didn't use the ball well enough.

"The second half of the first we were much better. We managed to play through and get in to the centre forwards and had some really good chances.

"They scored from a throw in and a set play - that's the frustration because we knew that was coming."
