Preview: Duff on Bury

4 March 2019

Having taken on one of League Two's favourites for automatic promotion on Saturday, it's another high flying opponent next up for the Robins when they host Bury at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Michael Duff is already expecting another very tough encounter against a team he feels is the best in the division.

He saw his charges fight back to draw level at Mansfield on Saturday from being two goals down, only to see two late second half goals deny his team a share of the points on the road.

Now though he is expecting an interesting clash between a Bury team looking to get back into League One, and a Robins side who have been delivering at home with consistency in the past few months.

"They're the best team in the league for me, Bury. I've just found out they've scored 91 goals in all competitions - I think only Man City have scored more," Duff said at the club's Monday morning press conference.

"They're free flowing, they've not lost since Boxing Day I don't think, so we'll need to turn up and be a little bit more tuned in, in key moments of the game.

"We've lost one in 15 at home. We've got a good home record so we need to take the game to them whilst being aware of their threats so that's why the selection needs to give you that balance because we've got good players and we can use the ball well as well."
