Eager to bounce back from watching his side miss out on adding to their points total at the weekend, Michael Duff has highlighted the areas where he thinks Tuesday's home encounter with Cambridge United will be decided.

The Robins boss leads his team into the first of two home games in five days at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Tuesday night. Kick-off is at 7.45pm.

At the club's Monday morning press conference he knows where his side need to improve if they are to get back to winning ways, and the threats Cambridge will pose on Tuesday.

"I thought Saturday was a really close game," Duff said. "Two evenly matched teams with just one moment in the game which was the difference. You can't get too up or too down, we know we need to be better in the top third of the pitch - that was probably the most disappointing thing from Saturday, we didn't work their goalkeeper enough.

"They've [Cambridge] got good legs in the top end of the pitch. I think they'll be 4-4-2 and they have good pace in wide areas and good pace in the top end of the pitch.

"I think that'll be where the game will be won or lost. Whether we can hurt them in wide areas or whether they can hurt us."
