Speaking to Anchors TV on Saturday, Assistant Manager JD Briggs said:

“I expect it to be a really tough game. We are going to have to change personnel for that because it comes quickly off the back of today.”

“We watched them against Hebburn and they were a really good and hardworking team. They have a good spirit and a good way about them.

“If we can get something out of it, it sets us up really well going in the final stretch.”
