Darryl Duffy: Wants regular first-team football

The 29-year-old former Hull and Swansea forward cannot understand why his first-team chances were so limited after 15 goals in his first season with the club.

And with manager Mark Yates undecided whether he will offer Duffy a new deal the forward just wants to be playing regularly.

"If I get an offer elsewhere with more of a first-team chance then, of course, that will interest me more," he told the Gloucestershire Echo.

"I started six games in all competitions last year and never in a million years did I imagine that would be the case after scoring 15 in my first season at Cheltenham.

"It almost felt like a waste of a season and the manager may have felt I was lacking a spark, but I didn't have any chances to get that spark.

"I need to speak to him (Yates) to find out exactly what his plans are and then I can make an informed decision.

"After last season I want to play and I am not going to sit on the bench at Cheltenham for less money than I was on last year."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
