31 October 2019

Michael Duff is expecting an entertaining occasion on Saturday not just for a Gloucestershire derby at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium, but because two teams with the best defensive and attacking records in League Two come face-to-face this weekend.

Forest Green Rovers visit for the club's first meeting this season, with the Robins third in the division and Rovers fourth.

Duff's charges are aiming to make it ten unbeaten in all competitions for what's set to be a tense encounter in front of a large crowd.

"They have the best defensive record in the league," Duff said at the club's press conference on Thursday morning. "Teams at home open up and come onto them which is what they want because they generally dominate the ball. If you come onto them they can play their way through you. That is their strength.

"They can play a couple of different formations so they can flip things during the game. They've got lots of different ways that they can hurt you.

"We need to be wary of what they can do and how they can hurt us.

"If you flip that on its head we've got a decent home record and have scored the most goals in the league. That's why it's going to be a good game."
