“They’ve always got some good players but they don’t like coming to Holmes Park.

“Hopefully that’ll be the same this week and we make it very uncomfortable for them and we’ll see an exciting game, like we did last week.

They’re a good team and they’ve started well, but so have we, so we’ll approach the game in a positive frame of mind and hopefully we can put on a performance once again.

“They’re a good team and they’ve started well, but so have we, so we’ll approach the game in a positive frame of mind and hopefully we can put on a performance once again.”
