Duff’s de­light af­ter vic­tory

Gloucestershire Echo - - SPORT -

Does that make it bet­ter, that you have switched it around?

It’s pleas­ing that you are not re­ly­ing on 10 or 12 play­ers. It’d be lovely if you were win­ning ev­ery week and you just keep rolling out the same 11, but the way this league comes at you, you have to be re­ally lucky to not pick up in­juries. We have real com­pe­ti­tion for places now, Chris Hussey comes back on the pitch now be­cause Josh (De­bayo) started to look a bit tired, but I thought Josh was ex­cel­lent. His de­fend­ing was good and his winger didn’t go past him once. I thought Josh was one of a num­ber. Ev­ery­one was ex­cel­lent to­day.

It sets up a cracker for Satur­day, with Swin­don com­ing to town

Yes, I think tonight’s re­sult makes Satur­day’s re­sult re­ally good (0-0 draw at More­cambe). If we can go and beat Swin­don it makes it an ex­cel­lent re­sult. It’s not that easy and I do think, and I’ve told the play­ers, they are the best team we’ve seen be­tween the scouts and the staff so far this sea­son. They move it, they are ex­pan­sive and dev­as­tat­ing on the counter at­tack. But, we will be aware of that and hope­fully be able im­pose our­selves on them as we did last year.

Seven points out of 12, is that a de­cent start?

Ab­so­lutely and I am not sure how long it took to get to seven points last year, but last year is parked. It is what it is, we want to im­prove on last year. We are two out of two at home and we have got a clean sheet and a point away from home, which is an­other step­ping stone. It’s so early and if we’d lost the first four games I’ve have been say­ing you need 10 or 12 games you need to start mak­ing a marker and that’s when you start look­ing at the league ta­ble.
