Preview: Duff on Cambridge United

Michael Duff has praised Cambridge United ahead of the final game of the season for the season they've had in League One, but knows a win this weekend could see his team finish above them in the table.

The curtain comes down on the season at the Abbey Stadium with a 12.30pm kick-off on Saturday.

There is a two point difference between the sides at the moment who both earned promotion to this level by winning automatic promotion from League Two.

Duff appreciates the work they have done to have a good season at this level and also knows that though neither side has much to play for, there is still the possibility of either team finishing ahead of each other in the table.

"It's the last game of the season between two teams who can't go up or go down so it's who turns up on the day," he said.

"It's pretty much up to the players. It's got to come from within. It will be some players last game and it will be some players last chance to show what they can do. 

"It's a tough game. The challenge is we can finish above them but we have to beat them.

"They've had a brilliant season. They've had their ups and downs, as have we, but I think us and them along with Morecambe would have been most people's favourites to fill three of the bottom four and then one other from the others.

"I think Mark (Bonner) has done a brilliant job, built on last year, solid foundations. There's goal scorers in Joe Ironside and Sam Smith who we know really. They're never out of games."
