Preview: Duff on Burton Albion

26 August 2021

Michael Duff has warned his Cheltenham Town team that they are set to face a Burton Albion side with bags of energy on Friday night.

It's a third away fixture in a row on Friday evening at the Pirelli Stadium as the Robins face Burton in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Burton, managed by former Chelsea forward Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, have enjoyed a bright start to the new campaign and Duff knows what his team can expect when the first whistle is blown on Friday.

"One thing that's really obvious with his teams is they do get after you and they press on the front foot," he said.

"They don't let you have the ball in any area. They come after you all over the pitch.

"The back four are nice and tight and narrow when they are defending.

"One thing's for certain - we'll have to match their energy, their work ethic, they've got some quality within that as well."
