Michael Duff has highlighted Saturday's opponents Crawley Town's good home record ahead of the Robins visit to The People's Pension Stadium this weekend.

Having guided his team to an impressive 4-1 New Year's Day win at Yeovil on New Year's Day, Duff's charges head to Sussex on Saturday aiming to make it eight games unbeaten in all competitions.

There are decisions to be made on team selection with Johnny Mullins having suffered an injury in the win at Huish Park.

"Their home record is good. I think they've won seven out of 13 at home. Where they are in the league with that sort of strike rate at home it's going to be a difficult game," Duff said.

"We'll pick a team that we think will go and win the game. Whether that's a four or three, whether it's a two up front, whether it's a three up front - it's what we do every week.

"We don't just roll the same team out and go 'just go and do it again lads', there's a lot of thought that goes into it in the office, then the work goes out onto the training pitch, and it's always who is available and what you're playing against. 

"A lot of things go in the pot before we name a team and that was the same case when we were losing games. When we were losing games we still thought the team that we were putting out could win the game.

"It proved that it couldn't and the change of shape has helped the players obviously."
