Reaction: May on Sheffield Wednesday

27 March 2022

Happy to reach 20 League One goals for the season, Alfie May was disappointed though that despite his strike at Hillsborough he couldn't be a part of a Cheltenham Town side who took something from the club's first visit to the famous Owls home.

May silenced the large home crowd with a fine individual goal after just five minutes, but Wednesday got themselves back on level terms soon after.

In the second half Cheltenham had some big chances to get something from the game but couldn't take them, and they were punished by the hosts who scored twice late on to seal a win that takes them into the play-off places as they continue their push for promotion to the Championship.

"The performance wasn't bad at all. First half in the first ten or fifteen minutes we got in behind and I think we were the better team," May said.

"They got their goal and we probably took a little bit of a step back. The noise here got them going as well.

"When you lose and you're the person to score it doesn't mean anything but it is nice to get the 20th goal but I'm disappointed that we haven't come away with a draw.

"The 4-1 really isn't the right result. People will look at it and think we've been beaten by a better team, but I think we matched them and we worked hard to try and get the points."
