Having faced Tuesday night's opponents Swindon Town twice already this season, Cheltenham Town boss Michael Duff has made it clear just how big a test Tuesday's FA Cup first round replay at the County Ground will be.

Both meetings have ended in draws so far - an August league meeting at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium that twice saw Cheltenham come from behind to earn a point - and the original first round game between the two clubs that ended in dramatic fashion with two late goals.

Swindon beat Salford City away from home on the weekend to go top of the League Two table and Duff has highlighted just how big a performance will be needed if his side are to progress to the second round and face a home tie with another League Two outfit in the shape of Port Vale.

"They've just gone top of the league and they're at home so they will be the favourites for the game," he said.

"They've probably been our toughes tests this season in the two games. They've been very good when they've played us twice so we know what we're up against.

"We are up against a good team. We'll have to perform better than we did when we played them in the last game because we're probably lucky to be in the hat really. We need a reaction from that performance."
