‘We’re buzzing for it’

Assistant-manager Danny Webb spoke to the media about Saturday’s big game against Notts County in front of the TV cameras and was keen to ensure he got the message across that the game does not decide the season.

Speaking to the media, he said: “I don’t think it’s a six-pointer necessarily, no.

“It’s a massive game and we can’t shy away from that, if they win the gap gets bigger and if we win the gap gets smaller so both teams will benefit from the result if it favours them.

“You can’t say it’s ‘just another game’ though, it is more than that. A local rivalry and a packed house with two teams desperate for promotion, it’s a big game.

“We won’t approach the game any different to any other. It’s a big game for us and the supporters but we have to approach the game in the same way as we do any other.

“We know if we win it will get everyone a lift, that’s for sure. We’re buzzing for it.”

He spoke about the type of football Notts County play and their star man Macaulay Langstaff.

“Notts are a good side and play attractive football,” he said. “They have a top mentality and the manager sets them up well but what they have we do too.

“If we win our games in hand the table looks different, before we do that we have to try and beat them tomorrow.

“He’s [Langstaff] a big reason as to why they’re up at the top of the league of course but they have quality in every area not just up top.

“We have capable defenders and attacker to match them, we have to turn up. We will focus on ourselves.”

Webb also provided an update on the health of the squad. “We had a bit of a sickness bug going round at the start of the week but that’s all cleared now so that’s good,” he said.

“We have a fully-fit squad to choose from. It’s going to be a fantastic occasion for the supporters and the whole club – we need them right behind us from minute one.”
