John Ward's Swindon Reaction

John Ward's Swindon Reaction

Cheltenham Town manager John Ward spoke to Cheltenham Town's official website after a wonder goal from Ashley Vincent gave his team a share of the points at Whaddon Road.

'This is a very good Swindon side. The reports that we have received showed that we had to perform well to get what we did this afternoon. We went a goal down and that's always a test of your character and belief. We knew we had to step it up at half time and to be fair, the boys have come out and had a go at a very good side.

'This was another fantastic game of football. You've seen some great forward play and some fantastic goalkeeping. My 'keeper [Shane Higgs] has been outstanding today. It was a stunning goal by Ashley Vincent. Had it have been 3-3, we would have been shouting from the rooftops about it. Whaddon Road is a great place to watch football.

'We didn't create as much as Swindon today, but there is enough there. There's more to come from Paul Connor and Steven Gillespie - they put a great shift in today. Then we can unleash Damian [Spencer] and Vincent's pace. One of these days we'll hit four or five and we'll say 'there you go'. Chances at this level are hard to find so we have to work hard to create them. These strikers will get all the encouragement off me and the supporters, as they got today.

'Swindon came here in confident mood and you could see that early on shooting from everywhere, and we knew they would come here a do that. There are so many good teams in the league and I guess that alot of the games will be like that. Very rarely will we get three or four put past us and you won't see us concede that very often. That's the nature of this league, and we're delighted we're in. We need to keep performing like that.'
