The defender linked up with Town at the start of the pre-season, but just weeks after he joined manager Steven Pressley resigned.

Head coach Uwe Rosler has since swept in and is already putting his own attacking stamp on Town that was evident in the agonising penalty shoot-out defeat to Leeds on Wednesday.

Duckworth did not feature in that EFL Cup clash but made his debut off the bench in a right-wing role in the 1-1 opening-day draw at Northampton last Saturday.

And the German-born full-back says Rosler has brought a better vibe to the club since his arrival.

Duckworth said: “It is a change for everyone at short notice. We did pre-season with one manager, then we have started the season with another one.

“You have to adapt and I think we have adapted quite well in a short space of time.

“The new manager has been great. He has just brought a better vibe to the club.

“The lads look a lot happier under this manager. He has brought a new style of play in and has brought his own things in. It has been good and I’m looking forward to the season.”
