Freeview: Duff on Crewe Alexandra

16 January 2020

Robins boss Michael Duff has been keen to highlight the quality Saturday's opposition Crewe Alexandra possess ahead of the trip to The Alexandra Stadium.

Duff takes his side, who sit third in League Two, up the M5 and M6 to Cheshire, with Crewe currently sat in fourth - only behind Cheltenham because of goal difference.

When the two sides came head-to-head earlier in the season it ended in a 1-1 draw and Duff was impressed with what he saw that day and what he's seen of Saturday's opposition since.

"Of the teams we've played in the league, them and Swindon have been the two best teams that we've played," Duff said.

"Although we've lost games they've been the two that have moved us around the most and disturbed us the most, particularly when they've got the ball.

"They've got good quality. They have a definite way of playing, good rotations, good width - I think they're the second top goal scorers in the league behind Swindon which probably tells you how good they are with the ball.

"It's third v fourth. It should be a good game. It was a good game at our place. I thought they were the better team probably until they had the man sent off, then I thought we were unlucky not to go and win the game."
