Michael Duff expects Saturday's opponents to gain automatic promotion this season.
This weekend it is a trip north to the Peninsula Stadium to take on Salford City, and ahead of the game Duff has been highlighting the strength of their squad and appointment of Richie Wellens as manager - who won the division while in charge of Swindon Town last season.
Since the Robins won at Salford last season in September 2019, they've strengthened over the course of two transfer windows since then, so Duff believes they have a squad built for challenging for promotion at this level having been loyal to some of the players who had previously been a part of their rise through the divisions.
