Effort pleases new Robins boss

New Cheltenham manager Mark Yates hailed the effort of his players despite a 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth in his first match in charge.

Liam Feeney's second-half screamer was enough to give Bournemouth victory and Yates knows it will take time to arrest a run of one win in their last 15 matches.

"I thought our players were outstanding, we did everything but score and in the end got done by a wonder strike," said Yates.

"Sometimes these things happen when things aren't going for you but we're not downbeat. If I get that effort and commitment and quality from the players every week we will be more than fine.

"It's going to take time, the players are not going to pick up everything straight away. But already I'm starting to see players' traits, what they do and don't like doing.

"All I want is hard work, enthusiasm and commitment, and them coming to work with a smile on their face. If we manage that day in and day then we'll be doing something right and that's the aim."
