Despite the nine places separating the two sides, Trinity manager, Curtis Woodhouse, says he expects another difficult encounter for his side. Speaking ahead of the fixture, Woodhouse said: "They’ve not had a fantastic start really, I thought they’d be tipped as one of the contenders for the play-offs, but they’ve not gotten off to a great start. Hopefully, we can take advantage of that and come away with a positive result."
The Holy Blues will still be without two key figures in Jack Walters and Gregg Smith following injuries they accumulated earlier in the season. Alex Wiles came through his return to competitive action unscathed and is set to be a part of Woodhouse’s side for Tuesday night. Saturday’s goal scorer in Rod Orlando-Young is however a doubt for the fixture following the muscle injury sustained during the defeat against Witton Albion.
Once again the club would like to ask supporters from both sides to purchase their tickets online where possible as it aids with the track and trace system deployed at their ground and avoids unnecessary queuing outside of the ground. The club will also require any supporter to scan the QR code provided to check into the venue via the NHS Covid-19 app, once again to assist with track and trace around the ground.
As always, 100 tickets will be reserved for on the gate sales, however it is preferred that these tickets are bought by those who are unable to do so via the online tick portal on the Gainsborough Trinity website.
