Michael Duff feels this weekend's visitors to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium will be right up there as one of League Two's top sides this season.

Swindon Town make the short journey from Wiltshire to Cheltenham on Saturday for what is set to be a tasty derby encounter after Tuesday's second home win of the season against Carlisle United.

Speaking to the press this morning, Duff has tipped Swindon to be pushing towards the top end of the table in the division this season, with Richie Wellens' side having made a bright start to the new campaign.

"I was delighted after the game on Tuesday night," Duff said. "I think we showed everything we were about with a bit of quality and a bit of fight. A clean sheet, centre forwards scoring goals, and a couple of goals disallowed as well - one I felt harshly. If we can repeat that every week I'd settle for that.

"We've watched quite a lot of Swindon because of the opponents that we've played. You're always watching games and they are as good as we've seen. I think they will be right up there come the end of the season. We'll know a bit more about our team when we play them and maybe what we can do this season after the game when we've hopefully beaten them. I definitely think they'll be in and around it at the end of the season."
