The Robins excellent home form will face another tough examination in the shape of Northampton Town on Saturday believes boss Michael Duff.

Currently top of the form table from their last six games, the Cobblers make the trip to Gloucestershire this weekend for a contest that will pit Cheltenham's fine home form and Northampton's overall good form together.

Duff spoke to the media this morning ahead of Saturday and praised Northampton boss Keith Curle for his work at Sixfields.

"He's done a great job," Duff said. "I think they've lost four or five games since he's come in. Granted I don't think they should have been where they were, but they were, and he has come in and done a really good job. In the form table they must be in the top three or four probably since he's been in.

"They are hard to beat, you look at the amount of draws and I think they've only lost ten games and that's all season. When you think that most of them were at the start of the season. I think MK Dons have only lost ten and Forest Green have only lost ten - it goes to show they are a hard team to beat.

"I went to watch them against Newport last week and it was similar to our game really with Newport. It looked like it was going to be a 0-0 and they scored in the last minute.

"They went up to Grimsby, a tough place to go, and ground out another 0-0 so they're definitely tough to beat."
