Preview: Michael Duff ahead of the trip to Exeter City

20 September 2018

Robins boss Michael Duff believes his side are moving forward as they prepare to face Exeter City in his second match in charge on Saturday.

The first game of the new managers tenure ended in a 0-0 draw against Crewe Alexandra on Saturday and despite not coming away from the match with all three points, Duff was pleased with the team effort and the atmosphere within the squad.
“It’s not just the defenders that keep clean sheets it is a team ethic, hopefully you’ll see in games coming that the team will work as one unit rather than individuals,” said Duff.
“We need more points and more goals. That’s what we need to do and there does seem to be a decent atmosphere in the group.
“I think they want to learn they want to improve and hopefully the coaching that we’re trying to implement at the club, will probably take a bit of time, but we’re moving forward.”
Cheltenham Town’s opponents on Saturday sit in second place in the EFL League 2 table and come into the game on the back of two consecutive wins.
Duff admitted that there isn’t much separating the sides, but he has warned his players that they could get punished if they don’t turn up.
“You’ve got to be at it in any game in this division,” continued the Robins boss.
“There isn’t a lot between the top and the bottom so if you don’t turn up, with and without the ball, you’ll get hurt.”
