Nine wins, eight defeats and only a solitary draw suggest there will be a result one way or the other come 5pm on Saturday night. Woodhouse certainly feels his side have prepared well ahead of the fixture, "The training sessions this week have been the best since we have been at the club. We need to get better in terms of fine margins. I didn't think we deserved to lose in the matches with Morpeth and Darlington, but they were slightly better than us in both boxes and that is what we need to strive to improve on, if we are to be successful."
"We looked sharp in training on Tuesday and Thursday and it had a bit of needle, a bit of an edge. I'm a firm believer in train as you play. You can't just switch it on, on a Saturday afternoon. We are looking to be high energy, high octane while working on getting the ball forward a bit quicker than we have." The boss ended his address declaring, "We need the fans behind us from the first whistle as we try and get our first three points and start to climb the table."
Recent additions George Green and Micheal Williams are set for debuts, Green following his Thursday evening arrival from Boston United, a technically gifted 23 year old midfielder who has spent time at Premier League side's Everton and Burnley. Williams is available following a lengthy layoff due to suspension and being cup-tied having played for Sheffield FC in an earlier round of the FA Trophy. Both will be vying for spots in Woodhouse's squad. Liam King, who made a brief cameo in the narrow defeat to Darlington is expected to link up with the Gainsborough Trinity Reserves, as he steps up his return from injury.
