Cheltenham 1-4 Bristol City

Cheltenham 1-4 Bristol City

Another pre season friendly and another tough work out for manager Mark Yates and his boys as we went down four one to City.

Returning Steve Cotterill would've enjoyed his trip back to Whaddon Road following the result and City broke the deadlock after what had been a pretty even first half.

Richards levelled the scores for us from the penalty spot, but in the second half their quality showed and we weren't as on it and three goals followed.

Att: 1,570 (544 from City)

Speaking after the final whistle, Mark Yates was somewhat pleased with the showing and there was positives he could take from the game, but obviously the scoreline shows we have room for improvement still and that's what he'll be focusing on in the remaining days before our League Two campaign kicks off.

'Brilliant, it was superb for us. I thought for an hour we were really good but in the second half they really showed their quality. I thought our shape was really good and if you look at the goals they are just mistakes from us. They have not carved us open and that is the really pleasing thing but the goals could have been defended better and we'll hold our hands up for that.'

Yates goes on to say that in the first period especially he really feels we did play some very good football, and obviously that's what he now wants to build on moving forward.

'I don't think it was a four one game but I was delighted with the attitude of the players and we can take positives from the shape we kept and then learn from the mistakes that cost us goals.'

As for trialists, Yates confirms he can't offer Rakish Bingham anything at the moment so he's left to train with another club now, but he will be speaking further with Joe Curtis to see what can be done.
