Michael Duff believes the Mansfield Town side that visits the Jonny-Rocks Stadium for this weekend's FA Cup third round tie is a better one than the team who visited in League Two back in October.
The Stags are on a run of three consecutive wins in League Two having defeated Scunthorpe United, Port Vale and Salford City in their last three outings and visit Gloucestershire on Sunday to decide which team will make it into the fourth round.
Duff praised their new found energy under new manager Nigel Clough, and had the chance to go and scout them live on Tuesday as they beat Salford 2-1.
