Away teams have used the Victory Bar as a changing room during the Covid-19 crisis
Manchester City players will be getting changed in the bar at Cheltenham Town's stadium when they visit for an FA Cup clash Saturday but their fourth-tier hosts aim to make Pep Guardiola's men as comfortable as possible, manager Michael Duff said.
City, whose market value is estimated at over 950m pounds ($1.3bn) by specialist website Transfermarkt, play their fourth-round clash at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium where away teams have used the Victory Bar as a changing room during the Covid-19 crisis.
Asked what City's expensively assembled side would think of the Whaddon Road facilities, Duff seemingly didn’t care about it.
Duff said he was confident City would have no complaints about the state of their pitch.
Duff referred to the ex-Hereford United player Ronnie Radford's FA Cup stunner against Newcastle United on a muddy pitch in 1972 and said their pitch will be much better.
