Head coach Burchnall said "They had a bit of a strange result yesterday, obviously losing at Wealdstone.

"But there was a few strange results last night. That's going to happen, especially when you get these three games in a week, you don't know how teams respond to the short space in between them.

"But they're obviously the form team in the league because they sit at the top of the table.

"And they're the ones that everybody needs to beat if they want to get there. I think they've had a brilliant start.

"It's certainly not easy when you come down a division so to start so strong and be at the top of it is testament to them and the work that's going on.

"But at the same time, we want to be involved in big games, and I think it'll be a big crowd. There'll be a lot of tension within the game, I'm sure.

"And they're the games that are probably most enjoyable to be a part of. So these are the kinds of challenges that we're all here for. It will be a tough game, but a challenge, we really want to enjoy and relish.

"In the last two games and the Yeovil game we've played those games in more intensity, we've played with more attacking purpose and I think we've had more shots and more opportunities than we maybe did in some of the previous games.

"So for me, it's just to continue what we're doing. I think if we keep creating those chances, we will take more and start putting these games to bed.

"It's going to be a long season, we're only in a fragment of it. We're not a million miles off the top. And we're just a few points off second and third places.

"It's very tight up there. I think that the margins are quite small, but we have to try to focus on just repeating good performances and eventually I do think they'll bring us points."
