Preview: Duff on Sheffield Wednesday

28 October 2021

Michael Duff is preparing his Cheltenham Town side for what he believes is a visit from a club all geared up to return to the Championship at the first time of asking.

Sheffield Wednesday are the visitors to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Saturday for what is set to be the first ever competitive meeting between the two clubs.

Duff is well aware of the size of the opposition that his team will face on the weekend in front of a good crowd, and feels they're not too far away from getting things right to put them in the promotion picture on a football front.

"They have probably drawn too many for their liking," said Duff.

"They're up there anyway but if they'd turned some of those draws into wins they'd be right up there.

"I think when it comes to fanbase and size of stadium Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland you could argue could be in the top ten in the country in terms of size. Everything is geared up for them to get back into the Championship and then the Premier League. They would be a big club in the Premier League.

"Darren (Moore) is a very good manager and when you play for a club that size everyone's up for it."
