The Reds' Head Coach was proud of his side's performance in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Bolton in Play-Off action.

A Dion Charles effort cancelled out Nicky Cadden's wonderful Reds opener at the University of Bolton Stadium as the semi final first leg failed to separate the two sides.

Michael Duff felt it was a display to be proud of and one that he believes probably warranted more going into the second leg.

He told us post-match: "I thought we were excellent; disciplined performance with some quality as well. Just a tinge of disappointment that we didn't win the game but even at 1-0 the game wouldn't be done anyway.

"In terms of next week, for the fans, it's 10 months of coming to watch us, rolled into one 90 minutes. That relationship with our fans has been building over that period of time, and hopefully, under the lights at Oakwell, it comes to a crescendo on Friday night."
