Preview: Duff on Shrewsbury Town

16 December 2021

Michael Duff is expecting a Shrewsbury Town side who have picked up most of their points at home this season to offer his Cheltenham Town side another difficult test on Saturday.

It's less than a month since the sides last met at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium when Duff's charges picked up all three points in a 2-1 win.

Shrewsbury though have been impressive at home of late, beating the likes of Charlton Athletic and MK Dons, and taking a point off Sunderland in a 1-1 draw.

Their league position just above the relegation zone counts for little this weekend with a big performance required if it is to be a successful visit to Shropshire.

"They are unbeaten in their last four home games and they've beaten some really good teams in that run," Duff said.

"Their home and away record is night and day. We know what we are going to get from the opposition manager. They'll be well-structured and well-organised. It is going to be a difficult game.

"Every game is important, every point is a prisoner."

Duff has also been reflecting on the positivity of having a full week to work on things with the players at the training ground.

"It is the calm before the storm. It's an opportunity to tweak a few things we've not done well recently and reinforce what we have been doing well. It is nice to get a bit of time on the training pitch," he added.
