“With the way things have been in recent years I am not sure
many of the lads will understand the big rivalry that exists but I will bedoing everything I can to make them understand come 12.50pm on Wednesday.
“It's another good opportunity for us to extend the unbeaten
run we've been on and pick up another three points to try and climb the table alittle further, that is the main objective.
“The lads are confident, they've been playing well so we
just want to them to keep that going on Wednesday and hopefully the performanceis of the same level as recent weeks.”
Aaron Willoughby and Harrison Webster are both injury doubts
after taking knocks in training but keeper Grant Lowerson does return to
contention for the game. Conner Rennison and Kyle Wilson are definitely stillsidelined.
