Following the postponement of their midweek game at Lincoln, the First Team will be hoping to get back into action at Cleethorpes.
Martin Carruthers said:
“Cleethorpes are one of the best sides in the league and are pushing for promotion but have been hit by a hefty points deduction. This will make them even more determined to do well against us. They will be like a wounded animal, it is the worst possible time to play them.
“They are still capable of reaching the promotion play-offs and gave us a tough game earlier in the season and we expect the same on Saturday.
“Nothing less than 100% from our players will be good enough. We want to pick up the points that we need for our promotion push.”
