Reaction: Duff on Ipswich Town

23 February 2022

Once again Michael Duff praised the togetherness of his Cheltenham Town team as they registered a point at Ipswich Town on Tuesday evening.

With a number of players out injured or ill and unable to fill a full bench, the Robins battled hard in Suffolk against an in form Ipswich side to take a point back for the long trip to Gloucestershire.

The draw follows up another point away from home at Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday in what's turned out to be two good away trips in the space of four days for the club.

"We have seen the number of bodies that weren’t involved through injury and to be honest, other than Owen (Evans) making one save, I am not sure he’s had a lot to do," Duff said.

"We were better second half, when I thought we had as many chances, if not more than them. We are under no obligation to try and come here and take them on, toe to toe in a football match. We kept our shape and discipline and the character that the lads showed at the end was magnificent.

"We had quite a few playing who hadn’t played for quite a long time and you see them going down with cramp and it’s genuine, it’s not time-wasting. The worst thing you can get in football is cramp, it’s horrible.

"Once you get it, you can’t seem to get rid of it, but that spirit and togetherness, I’ve told them before, everyone will be used and everyone will be needed. It’s a really, really important point."
