Michael Duff has heaped praise on his group of players ahead of Saturday's League One season opener at Crewe Alexandra.

The Robins chief leads his team into battle in League One for the first time at the weekend after a stunning 2020/21 campaign saw the club crowned League Two champions.

It's Cheltenham's first time back in the third tier since 2009 and Crewe, who were themselves promoted automatically a year before the Robins, are the first opponents for what's all set to be a long and challenging campaign.

Duff has praised his players going into the game saying: ""The group that have been in have been unbelievable. Their attitude, physicality and the way they've pushed each other.

"They've ramped it up again. I couldn't have asked any more from the group. I could be a manager for 20 years and I might not get a group as good at this."
