Preview: Duff on Walsall

17 October 2019

Michael Duff will be eager to lead his Cheltenham Town side into action this Saturday at Walsall after last weekend's international break.

Without a game since the Leasing.com Trophy win over West Ham United under-21s on 8 October, Saturday's game is only the Robins second League Two game this month after last Saturday's match with Newport County was called off due to international involvement for some of the Welsh club's players.

The break has given Duff and his staff the opportunity to work extensively on the training pitches with the squad in preparation for Saturday's match against a Walsall team who were relegated from League One into the division at the end of last season.

"I think they would have probably wanted to have had a better start," Duff said about Saturday's opponents.

"It looks like they turned a corner with three or four wins on the spin. They'll have been disappointed with the last two results.

"We're not quite sure what we're going to get but as always I tend to focus more on what we're going to do - how we can implement our style on the opposition no matter what type of formation they play.

"If they match us up we do one thing, if they go a different formation we've got certain ways to what we adapt and what we tweak to what the opposition do but it's mainly about how we implement our game."

Tickets for Saturday's match are available to buy from the ticket office on Thursday and Friday this week.

They are also available on the day at Walsall but increase by £2 in price.
