What has the manager said?

“We are facing a good side who have enjoyed a good start to their season. That comes as no surprise to me having faced Plymouth in League One last season. Ryan Lowe is doing an excellent job there, and they will pose a test for us,” said Russell Martin.

“They play a similar system to us, and they will look to play a similar way to us so it is going to be important that we look to dictate the game through our play with the ball.

“They have nothing to lose, they are the underdog as the team playing against a side in the division above and it’s important we recognise that and come with he right intensity and attitude to make sure we are ready to face that challenge.”
