Reaction: Duff on Wycombe Wanderers

19 February 2022

Michael Duff was full of praise for the spirit in his Cheltenham Town squad as they came from behind twice to seal a point in a dramatic afternoon of football at Wycombe Wanderers.

Alfie May stole the show with an incredible four goals, but beyond that a crazy afternoon in Buckinghamshire ended with the Robins taking a good point on the road at a team competing to return to the Championship at the first time of asking.

Though happy with the fight his team showed to come from behind to get a result, Duff was well aware of areas his team were lacking in quality, albeit they made up for it with a fine attacking display which earned a valuable away point.

"In the end if it had been 0-0 everyone would have said what a fantastic point it is - so we'll take the point," he said.

"I said to them at half time I think we need to be better. I thought the Alfie chance in the first half to make it 2-0 was going to be a key moment in the game. Obviously it clearly wasn't.

"The goals were terrible. Wycombe would say the same. The main thing I took from it was the spirit and the togetherness.

"It's a hard earned good point against a good team.

"It's a freak game. I've never been involved in a 5-5. I've played 800 games and 150 as a manager and I've never been involved in a 5-5."
