Preview: Duff on Lincoln City

17 April 2022

Getting the mentality right will be crucial if Cheltenham Town are to pick something up from the Easter Monday visit to Lincoln City believes Michael Duff.

The Robins head to the LNER Stadium aiming to make it an unbeaten Easter period after Friday's home 2-2 draw with Gillingham.

Lincoln reached the play-off final last season and despite a season where they've not hit the same levels Duff is well aware that with the players they have and the experience of their manager they'll be a tough opponent for his players.

"It's probably a disappointing season for them after the success of last year but it just shows you how difficult it is," he said.

"They've got good players, a very good manager, a clear way of playing. I think they've changed a little bit during the season. They seem to have gone back to what traditionally a Michael Appleton team looks like.

"It is going to be a difficult game. I don't think they will go down, I don't think we'll go down and obviously we're both not going to get in the play-offs so it's hopefully which team turns up with the right mentality."
