Preview: Duff on Accrington Stanley

31 March 2022

Michael Duff is well aware of the difficulty teams travelling away to Accrington Stanley in League One face ahead of Cheltenham Town's visit to Lancashire this weekend.

Stanley are in the top nine when it comes to home form in the division and have made their home at the Wham Stadium a tricky place to visit in their four consecutive seasons at this level.

Duff knows his team face a physical challenge this weekend in what is a 12th versus 13th clash.

"They've got a manager who knows the club, who knows the level," he said.

"Every year they stay in this League is a success and they've sold a lot of players. They are a really hard team to play against.

"They go man-for-man a lot of the time all over the pitch. They play a back three but if you flip your midfield to a two and a one they'll change, if you play a one and a two they'll change.

"They are really good at home. They are probably mid-table because their away record is so poor."
