Freeview: Duff on Mansfield Town

Robins boss Michael Duff has warned his players of the threat Saturday's opposition carry despite their lowly position in the division.

Mansfield Town are the visitors to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Saturday, who after finishing in the play-offs last season, and only just missing out on automatic promotion, find themselves 20th this time around heading into the weekend.

Duff has described the Stags league placing as a "false position" and his team will expect another bruising test as they look to make it five straight home wins in a row.

"I think the one thing they'll probably be disappointed with Mansfield this year is their defensive record," Duff said.

"They have conceded quite a few goals but the new manager has come in, kept a clean sheet last week, and they've got goals in the team.

"It's pretty much the same team that just missed out last year. It's the same players - so they're a dangerous opponent.

"They're in a false position and they can go to any place in the League and stick three or four on anyone because they've got the players to do it."
