In focus: Crewe Alexandra

Crewe Alexandra are the visitors, currently level on seven points in 16th place but two places better off than the Robins courtesy of a better goal difference.

Duff's side come into the important League Two match on the back of two successive away wins under cartaker boss Russ Milton and an encouraging display against Colchester United at home a fortnight ago.

It's Crewe's 10th league trip since Boxing Day in 2002, when a classy Alexandra ran out comfortable 4-0 winners on their first visit to Whaddon Road.

Honours have been pretty much even since then, the Robins shading the head-to-head record thanks to the win last term thanks to Jamie Grimes' only goal on Blue Day.

In total Cheltenham have won four and drawn two of the nine previous encounters in Gloucestershire going into Saturday's match.

David Artell's side has lost all three games on their travels so far this season, failing to score a goal in defeats at Newport County (0-1), Colchester United (0-6) and Carlisle United (0-1).

Their two successes to date have come at Gresty Road, including the 6-0 thrashing of Morecambe on the opening day of the season.

In the media: Michael Duff

"The relationship I’ve got with the club, the affinity, the manager it was a big wrench to leave but I got an opportunity to come home and get into first team management," he told the gathered media during his first press conference on Tuesday.

"It’s a place that I know and that’s close to my heart so after some thoughts with the family, and after a while you’ve got to take the plunge and this has been a long-term plan for about 10 years now," he added.

"I’d like to think I’m good at what I do and I think I showed the board that and it’s up to me to prove that."
