“I think they’ll probably play their second XI. They have so many players you can’t really keep count.

“Whatever team they put out they’re going to be strong but we’ll put our strongest team our as we want to go for the win and finish the season well.”

“The fans at The Den haven’t had the best of it this season,” he added.

“Every now and again, teams play better away from home for a period,” he admitted.

“We had our period at home where we were almost unbeatable and now, at the moment we tend to get our away results.

“Next season we’ll look to address our home form and if we can maintain our away form we’ve got a chance of doing something.”
