CHELTENHAM boss Michael Duff says his side’s 2-2 draw with Wanderers is “a good result”.

Alfie May twice put the Robins in front but the Whites hit back both times through Xavier Amaechi’s first goal for the club and a moment of magic from Xav Amaechi.

Duff was pleased with his side’s performance at the UniBol and insists it is important to look at the bigger picture.

“I was pleased with the last 20 minutes. We could have just camped in but I thought we wrestled the ball back and created a few opportunities of our own,” said the Cheltenham chief.

“It’s a good result – that’s a seven-point week for us with two long away games.

“We know where we are. We have different aspirations to Bolton in terms of finance and the size of the club.

"We came here last year and got battered because we weren’t very good, but I thought we were good today.”

Both teams were without several key players due to injury and Cheltenham were forced to change from their usual system.

Duff felt they adapted well in the circumstances and says they showed their “mentality and togetherness”.

He added: “We played a back four. Our success in the last three years has been with a back five but we’ve got four defenders (fit).

“I thought we looked good at 4-4-2. It was formation bingo – they played three or four formations and we did the same.

“You don’t get an opportunity to do any work so it’s a case of mentality and togetherness. We’ve done a 10-minute walkthrough of 4-4-2 and we looked good.

“Then they flipped it and we had to flip it. Ultimately, it’s seven points from two tough away games and we’ll take that all day.”
