Duff: We have four cup finals coming up at home

23 January 2019

Manager Michael Duff has called on the Cheltenham Town supporters to get behind his team ahead of a run of crucial home games at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

The Robins host Macclesfield Town this Saturday in a 21st against 23rd battle in League Two, and then welcome Cambridge United on Saturday 2 February and Yeovil Town on Tuesday 5 February.

Then, later in February, Port Vale come to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium for a fourth consecutive home clash against teams in the bottom third of the table.

Duff has highlighted how important this run of home fixtures is to his side as they look to pull away from the League Two drop zone.

"We have four cup finals coming up at home and the players need to recognise that, as do the supporters. We need them to come along and make some noise and the players need to deliver," he said.

"I don't think we are far off it. We can't panic - it's not about other teams it's about how many points we get.

"The players know they need to deliver and it's all about getting points on the table."

Front man Luke Varney has already highlighted this week the important role played by the club's supporters in the Boxing Day win against MK Dons and draw with Forest Green at the end of 2018.

It's a big encounter this Saturday when Macclesfield come to Gloucestershire. The Silkmen are managed by former England defender Sol Campbell, while former Manchester United forward Andy Cole is also a recent addition to their coaching staff.

Kick-off on Saturday is at 3pm against last season's National League champions.

Tickets can be bought in advance online for the game here. They can also be purchased from the ticket office on Thursday and Friday between 10am and 3pm by calling 01242 573558 (option 1) or by visiting in person, as well as on the day at the turnstiles.
