City boss Matt Taylor says his squad is raring to go after a welcome week without a match following a hectic schedule.
After last weekend's 2-1 win over AFC Fylde in the FA Cup, Taylor gave his squad Sunday and Monday off before returning to the training field, something which he says was a real positive for his players.
"This was a chance to regroup and refresh. The lads have trained really well this week and we have had some extra bodies back on the field. We feel we've had a really good few days preparation," he said.
"This is a fixture we always lookout for at the start of the season. It's a real shame that the fans won't be there as it's a great stadium and their supporters are some of the most vocal. Our away fans have always enjoyed travelling there too.
"We want to be successful this weekend and we know we have to play well."
